Spain´s ugliest tomato – level 3

23-09-2021 15:00

Dozens of farmers competed in the annual ´ugliest tomato´ award that people celebrated in northern Tudela, Spain.

Participants submit mainly tomatoes of the Marmande variety, also known as the Ugly Tomato of Tudela. The tomatoes come out ugly because bees germinate them. They take the pollen from one place to another; however, when the process doesn´t happen smoothly, tomatoes grow out in ugly shapes.

The contest happened on September 12 this year, and Marisol and Vincente Martinez won this year´s award. They said that they didn´t grow ugly tomatoes intentionally. Ugly tomatoes came out by chance and that led the couple to participate in the contest. The winning couple’s award was an Iberian ham.

Difficult words: germinate (to make a plant start to grow), pollen (a yellow powdery substance flowers make which helps them reproduce), intentionally (planned).
