The UC Alameda County Master Gardener Program is hosting its amazing edible plant sale at Pleasanton Senior Center’s Centennial Park in two weeks, and pre-order sales started over the weekend.
Organizers say more than 5,000 vegetable and culinary herb seedlings can be reserved online ahead of curbside pickup days on April 9 and 10, with all funds supporting the program’s community education work.
“A selection of tomato plants will be on sale, including heirloom, cherry, slicer, container and paste varieties,” organizers said. “In addition, varieties of peppers, from sweet and juicy to hot and spicy, as well as squash, zucchini, pumpkins and many other vegetables and herbs will be available.”
“The selection will include many rare and heirloom varieties that are hard to find and not widely available,” they added. “Place your order early as we expect to sell out quickly as we did last year.”
Edible plants, which must be ordered in advance, with sales starting this Sunday (March 27), will cost $4 for each 4-inch pot. Customers can pay by cash or check at the curbside pickup time of their choice between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. April 9 and 10 at the park adjacent to the Senior Center at 5353 Sunol Blvd.
