UK: BTGA announces Tastiest Tomato Competition winners

2014 has just witnessed the 9th Tastiest Tomato Competition, sponsored by Marks and Spencer, organised by the British Tomato Growers’ Association and held at the National Fruit Show in Kent.

Staged towards the end of the British tomato season, there was no shortage of entries in four separate classes at the show, ranging from tiny cherries to juicy beefsteaks, proof of the skill of British growers and the great benefits of growing crops in glasshouses in today’s unpredictable climate. 

The overall winner and recipient of the David Stapley Cup was the cocktail variety Brioso, grown in Norfolk by Robert Farthing of Cornerways Nursery. Second place was awarded to baby variety Sweetelle grown by Andy Roe of Flavourfresh Salads and third place to Daniella Roe from Solfresh Nursery with the baby variety Nebula.

Other category winners were:
  • Beef Category, Cornerways Nursery with variety Selina
  • Classic Category, Cornerways Nursery with variety Roterno
  • Cocktail Category, Flavourfresh Salads with variety Sweet Rosso
  • Cherry and baby plum category, Flavourfresh Salads with variety Piccolini
