While everyone else is talking turkey, there's a family business in east San Antonio where they are seeing red.

Peterson Brothers Nursery is now home to 38,000 Poinsettia plants.

“There's 33 greenhouses of poinsettias and we started thinking about Christmas in July. The cuttings come in then,” head grower Paul Kosub said. “They're about two inches tall with four little leaves on them and no roots.  We have to root, step up, and then finish them.”

Kosub noted that the cuttings are imported from all over the world.
