13th Annual Tomato Tasting Day & Contests!

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- On Wednesday, August 28 from noon-5 p.m., the Master Gardeners of Franklin County's Penn State Cooperative Extension will hold their 13th Annual Tomato Tasting Day, by the stream at the Horticultural Center, 181 Franklin Farm Lane in Chambersburg. Tomato Tasting Day is free and open to the public.
The Master Gardeners' Tomato Tasting is blind taste test, where the public tastes many different types of tomatoes and rates them on a scale of 1-5 for flavor and aesthetics. After turning in their "report card" rating the varieties, participants are given a key describing each variety, and the source of the seed, so they can look for and plant their favorites next year.
Other events at the Tasting will be a Largest Tomato contest at 1 p.m., Salsa Contest at 2 p.m. and Ugliest Tomato at 3 p.m. To register for contests or for more information, contact Linda Secrist at lbs112@psu.edu or 263-9226.
