Vegetables & Potatoes
The Horticulture display is one of the brightest at The Royal with fruits and vegetables of all shades and shapes. Baskets and crates overflowing with pumpkins, apples, Onion ropes, potatoes and so much more! With over 60 different classes, the 2013 Vegetable Competition is not to be missed! Winning a class at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair holds the utmost prestige for these farmers, and they work hard all year long in order to achieve it.
And don't miss the Giant Vegetable competition which is judged live on Saturday Nov. 2nd. A 112 lb. cabbage stole the show last year and we can’t wait to see what giants show up this year. Will the Royal Record of 1414.6 lbs. for the Giant Pumpkins be broken?
