Greetings fellow tomato lovers! It’s that time of year again. August is upon us and you know what that means… TOMATO PICKING! The vines of your homegrown tomato plants have spent the past few weeks soaking in the sun and drinking lots of water. Now they are drooping to the ground under the weight of your delicious red (or maybe still green) tomatoes.

We here at Santa Sweets want to see if you can give our UGLYRIPES a run for their money— show us YOUR ugly and strange looking tomatoes! That’s right folks, step into your garden, find the ugliest tomato on your plant and send us a picture. We’re looking for weird shapes, bulges, dents and formations on your tomatoes. Slice one open and see an image of Abraham Lincoln? Send us a picture of your tomato (then sell it on eBay)!

On the first day of autumn— September 22, we will select the ugliest tomato, feature it right here on our blog, and ship its proud owner a box of UGLYRIPE tomatoes to enjoy into the fall months, after your personal garden has shut down for the summer. Remember, UGLYRIPE tomatoes are spectacular year round!

Email your photos to us at If you have a story to go along with it too, we'd love to hear it.

By submitting your photos and stories, you agree to allow Santa Sweets to post them to our blog or webpage without cost. We will make every effort to credit you for the photo(s) you submit, however the image becomes our property. Thanks for understanding.
