Ribbons from the Fair

We just returned from the Antelope Valley Fair and boy are we pleased.  We entered 12 different fruits and 10 received ribbons - 4 firsts, 1 second, and 5 thirds.  Both our Asian pears took ribbons as well as both peaches submitted and all the apples.  Here's the breakdown:
First Place - Forty-niner peaches; Braeburn, Fuji, & Gala apples
Second Place - Shinko Asian pears
Third Place - 20th Century Asian pear; Golden Supreme apple; Rosi-Red Bartlett pear; Flavortop nectarine; Paradise peach
