2023 Growing Great Tomatoes: Tomato Fundamentals, Variety and Flavor (on-demand webinar)
- Jan 01, 2023 12:00 am - Jan 01, 2024
Calling all tomato lovers, newbie growers and seasoned gardeners alike! This fun-filled class is designed to deliver a basic foundation in tomato cultivation and to help you increase the variety and flavor of this versatile summer favorite.
We'll learn how to "talk tomato" and decipher all the terms on tomato plant tags, which will help you select the best varieties for your individual garden site and your cooking/eating preferences, regardless of whether you start your plants from seed or you buy seedlings. We'll consider such factors as growth habit, disease resistance/susceptibility, days to maturity, yield, use and flavor profile. We'll also discuss which factors, other than variety, affect the flavor of your tomatoes, so if you've grown "okay-tasting" tomatoes and want to up your game, this is the class for you!
Our companion class, "Growing Great Tomatoes: Cultivating for Health & Productivity," will take things to the next level by addressing soils, planting dates, pruning, fertilizing, proper staking/caging/trellising, and identifying and troubleshooting common tomato pests and diseases.
