Every year the Fullerton Arboretum in Southern California has their annual VeggiePalooza. There were tons of varieties of tomatoes, peppers, herbs, and other veggies for sale. We decided to get a few plants that aren’t available at stores as plants and produce to buy. Since our backyard isn’t ready to have a huge garden just yet, we limited our selection to just a few tomatoes and a couple of peppers.
Cherry tomato: Isis candy – I chose a cherry tomato for my sister and nephew who will hopefully be visiting this summer. I’ll have those tomatoes ready by then!
Debarao heirloom paste tomato – I asked the volunteer there for something that was good for salsas. She recommended any of the paste tomatoes.
Rutgers improved – Another volunteer said this a good option too. It was in the ‘Slicer’ section of tomatoes.
Mr. Wonderful took care of the pepper plant selections. Both varieties he chose were hot. White habanero and pepperoncini.
I transplanted them as soon as we got home!
