The Keyport Garden Club declared winners Thursday night in its first Tomatopalooza contest.
The event was a short run. Registration was from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Keyport Bayfront Business Cooperative’s Dawg’s Night. The winners in three categories were declared by 8 p.m. What’s good is good, right?
There were some basic rules:
- There are three categories: best tasting sliced tomato, best tasting cherry tomato, and heaviest tomato.
- Only one tomato could be entered in the heaviest category.
- Two tomato varieties could be entered into each of the other two categories.
- A cherry tomato entry needed three samples of each variety.
Here’s the winners:
