Any insight about how the selections are made? Is it like the Oscars [expensive campaigns/bribe the judges] or something else? Could be the market is such it discourages the necessary promotion for reduced returns. Besides, the whole exercise is kind of silly, isn't it? Turnip of the Year! [Oops... sacrilege.]

If anyone is interested in the winners for next year, the AAS winners for 2009 are:
Cool Season Bedding Plant:  Viola 'Rain Blue and Purple' from Tokita Seed
Vegetables:  Eggplant 'Gretel' by Seminis Vegetable Seed
               Melon 'Lambkin' by Known-You Seed
               Squash 'Honey Bear' by  U of  NH

They just don't seem to be awarding many flowers recently.
