It’s tomatoes.

More tomatoes are grown in America by home gardeners than are produced commercially.

Yet there is this a robust commercial market for tomatoes and tomato products of all types: canned, vine-ripened, organic, sauces, soups, ketchup, etc.

At the same time, small-scale specialty cultivators do well selling their produce at farmers’ markets, and home gardeners with extra tomatoes share the bounty with their neighbors as gifts, in trade, or through informal sales. Marijuana could be handled in the same way.

Commercial growers can thrive side by side with home and specialty cannabis cultivators.
