Visit Florida and eat a tomato.

In an effort to promote Florida fruits and vegetables, the Florida Department of Agriculture has partnered with the state's tourism arm in "win a trip to Florida" contest.

To register to win one of 13 vacation packages, entrants must sign up at the produce departments at one of more than 3,000 grocery stores in the Northeastern U.S. and Eastern Canada.

Some of the cost of promoting the contest comes from recent congressional legislation that provided Florida with the money to market the state's specialty crops.
