Harvard Square was crowned 2024 Tomato of the Year. A true performer year after year, it is great for salads, sandwiches, burgers and anything else you can dream up.

Harvard Square has beautiful stripes, solid production and great feedback from tomato lovers in different locales, and super taste above all else. This unique tomato is well deserving of their focus and celebration this season. They first grew this star in their trial gardens on or about 2019. It truly surprised and delighted them then, and has continued to do that in subsequent seasons.

This year’s Tomatomania event features an extraordinary array of tomato varieties, from cherished heirlooms like Brandywine and San Marzano to exciting new hybrids like the blue splashed Two Tasty or an orange grape standout called Vivacious.

For convenience in navigating the huge selection, tomatoes will be organized alphabetically with special sections just for their Miniatures, Tomatoes-of-the-Year and Roger’s Recommends. And be sure to brag and share about your own favorite tomato variety on their Tomato Wall of Fame.

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting out, their tomato experts will be on hand to offer advice on choosing the right varieties for your garden, care tips and techniques for maximizing your yield and flavor.

Roger’s Gardens is located at 2301 San Joaquin Hills Road, Corona del Mar. It is open daily from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. For more information, visit
