Tomatoes – from Poison to Passion [VIRTUAL]
Saturday, April 10 at 2 p.m.–3 p.m.Free
Described in the 1600s and 1700s as “ranke and stinking,” tomatoes were feared to be poisonous, “toxic and not fit for hogs.” Descriptions of tomatoes today include having “crisp green apple notes,” “a burgundy wine finish,” “with a superb smoky sweetness.”
There are hundreds of tomato cultivars to choose from with many that grow well in the Lower Mainland. Join Jane Sherrott to learn how to choose cultivars that are suited to our growing season length and maritime climate. Pick up some easy, practical hints that will help you obtain a bountiful yield.
