2021 Other Category Contest

Open to all GVGO growers. The grower must submit their outstanding specimen to the GVGO for consideration.

The grower must be a paid up GVGO member by March 1, 2021 to be eligible. All entries submitted to the GVGO have been judged by the GVGO Executive for their greatness to the growing community.


The Executive has voted and Chris Lyons has been judged the winner for his mammoth tomato of 7.88 lbs setting a New Canadian Record for that category. In doing so he wins $150 from the club. Chris and his late father are renowned for their Tomato growing and Chris could boast he is the best in Canada (but won't). We at the GVGO are very proud of this accomplishment!
