CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Employees at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities Department are in a heated battle to be the best.

Several teams have come together for an informal contest to grow the best tomatoes.

Plants are set up at several sites around the city. Some are looking quite promising, while other varieties look like they could use a trip to the gym.

While the competition is fierce, the contest is all in fun. CMUD is hoping to show employees and customers alike, that you can grow a good tomato while still staying green.

Very little water is used on the plants and no pesticides are allowed.

The contest isn't over until September so the battle will continue.
