Lovers of intense competition won't want to miss this summer's battle between homegrown fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers for blue ribbons at the Denver County Fair. Among the top contenders in the fierce fight for this town's hottest tomato will be Mar Lee Sweeties, the perfectly sized cherry tomato plant for tract home patios... As illustrated in the picture above, Mar Lee Sweetie cherry tomatoes grow as uniformly on the vine as do small-frame post-World War 2 tract housing down a southwest Denver street.

This compact super-producer shows much tolerance to Late Blight from South Sheridan to South Federal Blvds. Bursting with snack-ready supersweet baby cherries about one inch round, Mar Lee Sweeties are known for their superior yield.

Plant in a hanging basket, a tract patio flower pot, or directly into the garden, and you'll have an abundance of company all summer long.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
