This New Jersey canning variety is on the verge of extinction! Large, 6-inch long, pepper-shaped fruit are packed with great tomato flavor. Delicious fresh from the garden. Their large size makes them a snap to can. Their thick, rich flesh is much tastier than modern paste types, and the fruit have very few seeds. One of my personal favorites.

What are the pros? Very Hardy and easy to grow
What are the cons? None
When starting these seeds indoors, I had forgotten they were paste tomatoes because the picture on the seed pack didn't look like a paste tomato. So when the fruit started to form I just thought I mislabeled the seedlings. Only after re-visiting the website did I realize these are the fruit I was supposed to get. Had I known this, I would have planted a whole bed of these as I also planted a bed of San Marzanos. These are much bigger which makes the whole canning process a lot easier and the taste is as good or better than SM's. I will certainly be planting at least one bed of these next season. We had a good year in the Raleigh area of NC (not too hot) and they produced well and ripened when expected as I've read a few reviews of them ripening late in the season. I guess weather conditions have as much to do with that aspect as anything else. I highly recommend these to anyone who wants a great tasting sauce tomato with half the work.

What are the pros? Huge, tasty, dry, meaty
What are the cons? late to produce
These are bigger than my hands and the tops for gourmet sauce. They are late in my garden but I still love them.

What are the pros? excellent flavor & yield
What are the cons? none
I have grown Jersey Giant's for the past 3 years & love them. The flavor is fantastic - great for fresh eating, salsa, sauce, canning, freezing, everything... They are big & meaty with few seeds.
We live in the White Mountains in northern AZ at 7000 ft elevation. This year was especially tough for gardening. We had a very dry spring & early summer, late frost, lots of wind. This was followed by 2 months of rain & cool temps. My tomatoes got off to a slow start, but once the rain started, grew like crazy, but due to the rain & cool temps they didn't begin to ripen until mid-August, & got hit with an early frost mid-September. Despite the difficult conditions, the jersey giants produced tons (I had buckets of green tomatoes ripening in the house after the frost). They also did not crack badly & maintained excellent flavor even when other varieties got bland & watery from the rain & lack of sun.
This variety needs to stick around!

I grew these tomatoes to make salsa out of them, there are little seeds, and lots of meat. Did I meant that the plant produce EXTREMELY well. We like to eat them plain and loved canning with them, they are a must every year.

I started these seeds in January. Germination was great. As of April, We have 6 plants that are about 2 ft. tall and already blooming. We gave away lots of transplants to friends who were eager to give them a try.
