Rutgers Tomato

Rutgers Tomato


(75 Days) Indeterminate. New Jersey has grown quite a few tomatoes in its day. The Rutgers tomato came from a cross, in 1934, between a Campbell's Soup tomato, J.T.D., and Marglobe, resulting in a disease resistance variety.  This slicer is a classic American tomato, easily a dual purpose variety as a soup fruit.
