Cal Poly Pomona’s eagerly awaited TomatozaniaTM plant sale features hundreds of tomato varieties for purchase March 13-15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Plant Science greenhouse across from the Cal Poly Pomona Farm Store at 4102 S. University Drive in Pomona.
Selections range from the more well-known San Marzano, Better Boy, Green Zebra and Cherokee Purple to the heirlooms and new introductions, such as Abu Rawan, Cosmic Eclipse, Paul Robeson, Tidy Treats and so many more. Varieties include those perfect for large to tiny gardens, as well as those that flourish in containers. All are non-GMO.
The annual sale began in 1997, and its reputation has spread throughout the San Gabriel Valley and beyond. In 2019, approximately 1,600 gardeners purchased more than 6,000 plants. Another 5,000 plants were sold through the retail nursery in the weeks following.
All of the plants were propagated and grown by Cal Poly Pomona Plant Science student employees, who also created the labeling, signage and social media outreach. All proceeds benefit the Plant Science program and students.
Come to the event and be sure to document the experience with the whole family with our free photo prop opportunity, this year featuring not only tomatoes but also Felix, the greenhouse cat!
