Welcome to Relish’s Ugly Tomato Contest!

Relish readers have submitted their hideous and prized tomatoes with faces only mothers could love. But as OUR mothers’ taught us, it’s what’s on the inside that really counts. So we embrace these juicy ugly ducklings and wish them short but happy lives tossed in herbed tomato salads and mixed in caprese soups.
