Sweet Tomato Test Garden
Leslie Doyle sees something different than most people when she thinks of desert: a lush garden full of juicy red tomatoes. After all, cultivating tomatoes in the harsh Las Vegas climate is Ms. Doyle's life work. She even wrote the book on the subject.
At Sweet Tomato Test Garden, Ms. Doyle continually tests new methods and seed varieties, from black cherry to Hawaiian Tropic tomatoes. The garden also serves as testing ground for other produce, such as beets and lettuce, and hosts classes that teach other desert gardeners how to cultivate their own tomatoes.
