You know Spring has arrived when you start hearing about Tomatomania throughout the Southern California area. Started 20 plus years ago in Pasadena, Tomatomania events have the largest selection of tomato varieties and supplies anywhere.
I went to the one nearest me this past weekend, at Tapia Bros Family Farms. There was so much to see! Luckily for us shoppers, there are tons of Tomatomania helpers to guide you in picking just the right varieties of tomatoes for your garden this year. Just check out this “Spoon” variety below!
Tomatomania events usually showcase 300 heirloom and hybrid varieties. But it’s not just plants. You’ll find pots and cages, fertilizers and boxes of ladybugs. Tomatomania also offers tastings, classes, social gatherings and an app with growing tips!
