Guess Where Your Tomato Came From
Next time you buy a Texas tomato, check where it was grown. As Terrence Henry reports for StateImpact Texas, the answer might surprise you: in the desert. Ninety percent of the state’s tomatoes come from a few greenhouses in far West Texas.
We have a facility here that uses one-fifth of the water of traditionally field grown crops and has 40 times the yield. It’s a phenomenal system that’s been put together and really an example of the future.
