Master Gardener's Tomato Winners

The annual Amador Master Gardeners’ Tomato Tasting drew 76 entries this year. The varieties were spread almost evenly among Red, Non-Red and Cherry tomatoes. First place in Red tomatoes went to Susan Price of Sutter Creek with her Mountain Magic variety. In the Non-Red category, placing first was Cherokee Green from Susan Port and Joan Winter. The Cherry category grew to 22 entries but in the end, it was Wes Schultz of Sutter Creek placing first with Tiny Tim.  A Striped German tomato weighing in at 25.8 ounces was brought in by Joyce Jillson of Harold and was awarded the prize for largest tomato at this year’s event.  Two returning judges, Steve Muni and George Erdosh, were joined by Central Sierra Director and 4-H Youth Development Advisor JoLynn Miller for the blind tasting event.
