I have gone to this tasting for the past three out of four years. It is set up with several large open-wall tents, each with a tomato theme (beefsteaks, cherries, pastes, etc.). I believe they offer about 80+ varieties of tomatoes for tasting.

I am skipping this year because it gets too crowded with long slow lines and poor organization. Also they seem to lack a lot of the classic varieties I wanted to taste, and the taste buds get saturated after a while and they all start tasting the same. If you go, be sure to take the hay ride!

Default Tomato Tasting....

There is a listing of the tomato varieties they had for the Tomato Tasting. The link is posted directly below the video. There are pictures with descriptions and the source for the seed.
Enjoy!
