Tomatoes: A Fruit for Tahoe Garden Masochists


Event Date

Tahoe City Field Station

In cooler climates tomatoes typically are grown in greenhouses. The Lake Tahoe Master Gardeners and UC Davis TERC are more interested in the hardier species of tomatoes that can handle the climate of Tahoe. This fruit is notoriously the problem child for garden families here in Tahoe. Learn the techniques required to grow these plants in our cool summers. Topics include proper varietal selection, location in the garden or container, planting options and methods for protecting the young plants and fruit.

Doors open at 5:00 p.m. 
Presentation begins at 5:30 p.m.
