Rules and Tips for Displaying Vegetables

  1. See General Rules.
  2. When choosing vegetables for exhibition, choose such specimens that would bring the highest price at a retail market.
  3. Select specimens that are true-to-type. Do not mix varieties.
  4. Pick specimens of the same size, shape, and maturity level. Medium-sized specimens are usually best.
  5. Select specimens free from soil or debris from insect or mite skins, honeydew, or excrement.  Specimens may be washed or rinsed.
  6. Select specimens free from bruises, cuts, or other mechanical damage. (including scrubbing marks)
  7. Harvest specimens with shears. Wrap specimens individually for safe transport to fair.
  8. Enter only the number of specimens called for in the premium list. Entries with an incorrect number of specimens will be disqualified.
  9. Entries of root crops, such as beets, carrots, radishes, rutabagas, and turnips, should be topped, leaving petioles at a length of 1-2 inches.
  10. Remove stems from tomatoes to avoid skin punctures.
  11. Unsound vegetables will be removed by the fair association.
  12. Exhibitors must accurately identify their own entries as to varieties and types. Exhibits entered into the wrong class may be disqualified.
