Classes which require more than one fruit or vegetable (i.e., 5 red tomatoes) are not to be overripe or blemished, but recommended to be the same size, shape, and color. Root
vegetables are to have tops attached for display. Clean fruit and vegetables of dirt; this can be done with a dry or a damp cloth. Sweet corn is to include silk and husk.
