Ugly Is In, Even In the Produce World


Each year the folks at Santa Sweets hold an Ugly Tomato contest. The contest, which is to celebrate their UglyRipe variety of tomatoes, brought in many entries that they actually named eleven winners. The tomatoes were yellow, red, green and some contained many weird lumps. The odd shaped fruit surprised everyone, including Joe Procacci, CEO of Procacci Brothers Sales Corp (the parent company to Santa Sweets), who had this to say:

"I've been in the tomato-growing business for over 60 years and I have never seen tomatoes this ugly!"

Here are a few of my favorites, but be sure to check out all the winners when you have a chance.
