VEGETABLES

Exhibits accepted on Saturday 9:00 to 5:00, Sunday, 1:00 to 5:00

Exhibitors must stay until all items are checked in.
Winners may turn in placement stickers for ribbons at fair office.

1. In selecting vegetables for exhibition, choose such specimens that would bring the highest market price. Do not select the largest; select medium size specimen. If at all possible, do not mix varieties.

2. The following factors are generally used by an expert vegetable judge:

     a. Trueness to variety type. If at all possible, pick the specimen from one variety.

     b. Uniformity in shape, size and color.

     c. Be sure to pick out a perfect specimen, then select the others as similar to it as possible. Never mix specimens of different maturity.

     d. Protect from dirt, disease, infection and mechanical damage. Select specimens that are perfect and show no blemishes of any kind.

     e. Condition and maturity. Be sure that exhibits are of high quality.

     f. Potatoes should not be washed. Remove soil using a soft cloth or brush.

     g. Tomatoes should have stems removed. Carrots, beets, etc. should have tops (leaves) removed from vegetables leaving about (2) two inches of stems.

3. Read premium materials, carefully following all rules and regulations. If an entry calls for five specimens, be sure to exhibit that number; do not enter four or six. In any instance, your exhibits will be disqualified if the correct number of specimens is not entered.
