Celebrate Tennessee’s State Fruit, the Tomato!

Tentatively scheduled for July 17, 2021

The annual Mid-South Great Tomato Contest is held in July to celebrate Tennessee’s state fruit, the tomato! This day-long educational event includes learning stations about the best growing practices for tomatoes, an Ask-a-Master-Gardener Table, cooking demonstrations, children’s events and a tomato contest. Join us for this community event to learn more about one of our region’s favorite garden plants.

Due to COVID19 restrictions, the Tomato Contest was cancelled for 2020.
