"Tomato Mania" hit Cal Poly this weekend.
Veggie fans packed the Poly Plant Shop at the Environmental Horticultural Sciences Building on Saturday for the first day of the two-day “Tomato Mania” plant sale.
The annual sale is the culmination of an enterprise project by six students in the College of Agriculture, Food & Environmental Sciences, who grew more than 5,000 tomato plants of 65 varieties from seed.
The plants sell for $6 each or five for $25, student Gage Willey said, with varieties that include Moonglow, beefsteak, Shady Lady, Alaskan fancy, cherry tomatoes and much more.
The sale continues 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at the horticultural building on Via Carta Road off Highland Drive.
