Taste of Tomato: A Tomato Celebration and Tasting

Saturday, September 7th, from 10am to 1pm

At Growing Gardens’ new barn: 1630 Hawthorn Avenue, Boulder 8030

Savor the Flavors of Dozens of varieties of Home-Grown Tomatoes! Learn about tomato growing and care! Find out which tomato varieties you want to grow in your garden or buy from your local farmers!

If you bring 3 or more medium to large tomatoes (or 10+ small or cherry tomatoes) of one named variety, with its variety name on a card, to donate to the tasting you will get in FREE. You are encouraged to share more than the minimum, and enter more than one variety!  NOTE: If the correct name for your tomatoes is unknown we cannot use them in our tasting.

If you have no tomatoes to bring, come anyway, for an entrance fee of $5.

Volunteers will be cutting tomatoes for your tasting. The samples will be grouped by type: Cherry, Beefsteak, Paste, and Slicing/Salad and will be labeled by name. In past years we’ve had from 65 to more than 100 different varieties to taste!

You will be able to vote for 6 of your favorite tomatoes. Voting results will be assembled and emailed to participants. Results will also be posted at www.HarlequinsGardens.com.

Valuable DOOR PRIZES will be awarded every half hour!

Two demonstrations of Tomato Seed-saving procedures will take place during the tasting, at 10:30 and 12 noon.

Harlequin’s Gardens staff will be on hand to answer your tomato questions.

This is always a lot of fun, and educational, too!
Please do not bring dogs.
Children are welcome with adult supervision.
