The Biggest Apple Contest is just that. The entrants are from area orchards and devote time to a special tree in their orchard where they have discovered a large apple growing. They will keep an eye on this tree and give it just a little more attention. They will water this tree maybe a little more often all the while watching this one particular apple. Once it gets to just the right size, they carefully pick it and hand deliver it to the Apple Festival where it will be displayed until the time of the judging of the Biggest Apple Contest.
The apples are measured from the stem around the bottom and then back to the stem, as well as around the middle of the apple. Â then after the measurements have been taken the Biggest Apple is chosen and the Award goes to the winner.
