Farmers in Spain competed to win the ´ugliest tomato´ award. The competition happens every year in northern Tudela. Farmers bring tomatoes which are usually the Marmande type, and people call this type the Ugly Tomato of Tudela.
One participant in the competition said that bees were the reason why some tomatoes were so ugly. Bees took the pollen from one place to another, but something went wrong, and then some tomatoes grew ugly.
Marisol and Vincente Martinez won this year´s award. They said that they did not plan to grow ugly tomatoes. It just happened by chance, and the couple decided to be in the competition. The first prize was an Iberian ham.
Difficult words: participant (a person who takes part in a competition or game), pollen (a yellow powder which is on flowers, and bees carry it to other flowers), Iberia (the peninsula where Spain and Portugal are located).
