From the Herald-Mail:
Each table was lined with tomatoes as tasters armed with clipboards rated them on a scale of 1 to 5 based on flavor and appearance.From the Record Herald:
“I came just to taste them. I eat a lot of tomatoes,” Burke said.
While some believe an apple a day keeps the doctor away, Burke seems to have applied that same philosophy to tomatoes — but only in the summer.
She doesn’t like the taste of tomatoes in the winter.
“I only get them in the summertime when they are locally grown,” she said.
The tomatoes offered were red, yellow, green and purple. Some were sweet, some were tangy.
The public was asked to rate each tomato on a one to five scale for flavor and appearance.
“I like it,” said Ruth Cozzoli of Hagerstown. “It’s a fun thing to do.”
Ann DeBien of Mechanicsburg drives one hour each way to attend the tasting.
“This is wonderful,” DeBien said. “It’s worth asking a vacation day off for.”
