This year’s Veggie Madness tournament in honor of National Nutrition Month featured stunning upsets, leafy wins and down-to-the-stem games. After five rounds of fictional vegetable face-offs, we finally have a Chompion.

The Chompionship match-up pitted wild card favorite Avocado against leading legume Sugar Snap Pea. Avocado’s widespread appeal helped it guac the tournament in early rounds, while Sugar Snap’s tight teamwork let it grow right through the competition.

Both contenders traded leads throughout the Chompionship game, but just as things seemed destined for an overtime steaming session, Avocado got into some late foul trouble for losing its pit. Combined with Sugar Snap’s dizzying offensive performance, Avocado just didn’t have the vitamin power to match its opponent’s super pod play.

Congratulations to Sugar Snap Pea for winning the 2019 Veggie Madness tournament.
