The Pink Tomato Festival Heirloom Tomato Taste Test was held Saturday, June 13, in the former Pink Zebra building on the court square. This event was sponsored by Deepwoods Farm and Devon Donnelly was there to assist festival goers with any questions that they had about the tomatoes from her family’s farm. The tomatoes that were available for taste testing were: Purple Cherokee, Amelia Hybrid, Arkansas Traveler, Red Zebra, Nyagous, Carolina Gold, and Grape Varieties. Deepwoods Farm also had boxes of these varieties available for sale. The farm also offers: Caro Orange, Mortgage Lifter, Mr. Stripey, Bradley Pink, Old German, and Kellogg’s Breakfast.
