Dept O Horticulture
A maximum of 3 entries per exhibitor are encouraged, however more than three maybe considered depending on the circumstances and at the discretion of the department head.   If more than three entries per exhibitor are authorized, a maximum of three entries per exhibitor will receive premium payment.  Entries will be judged based on the following criteria: size, shape, color, uniformity, maturity, blemishes and condition, and variety correctly identified.  Entries that are highly prized by judges and those that will be awarded blue ribbons must meet high “Fair Quality” standards of excellence.  For example, maximum size is not necessarily desirable for some lots.   Entries must  have excellent characteristic shapes and color.  Each individual items in an entry should be as uniform in size, shape, color and maturity as possible.  Recognizing the shortness of Sevier County’s growing season and the early time of year of the Fair, immature entries will not be penalized and are encouraged.  Please note that judges may  award white ribbons or no award status to those entries that are overly mature, not uniform, overly blemished or have an incorrect number of items (see lot instruction’s) in the entry.  Entries that are infested by insects, diseases, overly bruised, or otherwise do not meet “Fair Quality” standards may not be accepted for entry at the discretion of the department head.   Trim root vegetable tops  to 3 inches.
