And the winners are...

Hey folks! It's the beginning of Fall and time for us to announce our "Ugly Tomato" Contest winners! There were so many unsightly entries we had a hard time picking just one. So instead we've decided to give out ten prizes!

Chieko Arimura of Cupertino, CA, Vincenzo Domingo of Long Island, NY, Nadine Gotschall of Louisville, OH, Odes Hoogeveen of Oxnard, CA, Stephanie Mallette of North Canton, OH, Gregg Meyer of Nevada City, CA, Courtney Newman of Hollywood, CA, Lori Patterson of Richmond, VA, Rita Rudner of Buena Park, CA and Cheryl Thomas of Virginia Beach, VA are the proud owners of some repulsive produce, and the lucky recipients of a box of UGLYRIPEs. Each winner can choose to have their case shipped now or in the dead of winter when the summer tasting UGLYRIPE might be a refreshing reminder of warmth. Kelly Bevan, an eleventh winner, is from the UK.

We had a great time seeing everyone's ugly tomatoes and we hope you'll share your ugly tomato pictures with us again!

Check out these UGLY winning entries!

My mom and dad were one of the winners with their tomato that I entered. They just rec'd their box of Ugly Ripes and they were in 7th heaven! I do not think that my mom and dad are mad at me any longer for picking their tomato! The box that arrived has made their day! Thanks for such a fun contest! Stephanie
