Tomato Contest to judge different looking tomatoes

Staff reports | August 17th, 2016 11:25 am

In possession of a very large tomato? What about a very small one?

Is there one on the vine so ugly it can’t be looked at it anymore? How about a tomato too perfect to eat?

If the answer is “yes” to any of these questions, those tomatoes should be entered in the tomato contest, one of the Pittston Tomato Festival’s biggest highlights.

Tomatoes will be judged and awarded ribbons in four categories: smallest, ugliest, largest and more perfect.

Entering the contest is free. Judging will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20 at the festival committee stand.
