Don't miss the Totally Terrific Tomato Festival, the juiciest festival around, happening this August as part of Heritage Week at the National Botanic Gardens.

Learn all about this ubiquitous fruit through a series of exhibitions, talks, cookery demos, and more. Find out how the various varieties are cultivated and about the humble tomato's plant-life relatives, including tobacco, potatoes, chillies, petunias and even deadly nightshade.

As the theme for Heritage Week 2018 is Sharing Stories, self-confessed tomato addict Nicky Kyle, along with Botanic Gardens Director Matthew Jebb, will also be on hand for the fascinating series of talks known as Tomato Tales.

If you love a good tomato or simply want to have a bit of craic while learning something new and unusual, make a date on your calendar for the Totally Terrific Tomato Festival.
