Fort Bend Master Gardeners' Vegetable and Herb Plant Sale Coming March 11

February 26 2023

Fort Bend County Master Gardeners will hold their Spring Vegetable-Herb Plant Sale on Saturday, March 11, from 9 a.m. until noon or until sold out at the Bud O’Shieles Community Center, located at 1330 Band Road in Rosenberg.

The vegetable and herb plants offered at the spring sale have been selected, planted and grown by FBC Master Gardeners who volunteer their time. Some of the vegetables that will be available include: tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. 

Tomato varieties include Bella Rosa, Better Boy, Big Beef, Brandywine, Red Snapper, Tycoon, Celebrity, Charger, Early Girl,  Homestead, Patio, Juliet, Cherry Surprise, Bumble Bee Purple, La Roma III, Sun Gold, Super Sweet 100 and Yellow Pear.

Pepper varieties include Anaheim, Ancho/Poblano, Early Jalapeno, Large Thick Red Cayenne, Orange Habanero, Serrano, Shishito, Tabasco, TAM Jalapeno, Big Bertha, California Wonder, Golden Summer, Gypsy, Jupiter and Sweet Banana. Eggplant varieties are Antigua, Black Beauty and Pingtung Long.

In addition, a variety of herbs will be available including basil - Emerald Tower, Genovese and Thai varieties; Caribe cilantro, large-leaf parsley, marjoram, Mexican mint marigold, mint, Greek oregano,  prostate and upright rosemary and moringa. While herbs are a great addition to many recipes, they also are wonderful plants to add to the landscape as many herbs are perennial and will produce all year.

The varieties of plants selected by Master Gardener volunteers are those that are recommended for Fort Bend County by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service or grown by Master Gardener volunteers in their home gardens.

All proceeds are used to support the mission of Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Fort Bend County and the FBC Master Gardeners’ programs which provide research-based horticultural education to residents of Fort Bend County throughout the year. No funds are used to pay volunteers nor are these funds used for anything unrelated to their mission.

FBC Master Gardeners are one of the volunteer groups of the Fort Bend County Office of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Master Gardener volunteers are given extensive training in horticultural practices. For more information about FBC Master Gardeners, visit
