Our pepper and tomato plants are looking great! Every year we start them early in our grow room and transplant them outside in May. Our employees enjoy these and other fresh vegetables from May to October!

Lemon Cucumber: This unusual, eye-catching lemon-sized cucumber has excellent flavor and is a great slicer or pickler. It is scrumptious eaten with the skin and all just like you would an apple.

Botanical Interests Employee Spotlight:
Joel is our production manager. He makes sure the packing process runs smoothly from the time that the seed arrives to when it goes out to garden centers across the country. He was born in Guanajuato, Mexico, and came to the states when he was 12. He now lives with his wife and 4 children in Colorado. He loves to play soccer and hopes to visit the Bahamas some day!
