Atlantic Prize Tomato

(Lycopersicon lycopersicon) Our original seed was acquired in 1993 from a local farmer in Salem County, New Jersey. Considered the quintessential Jersey tomato, Atlantic Prize was developed by a tomato grower in Atlantic County, New Jersey during the early 1880s. It was then introduced commercially by Johnson & Stokes of Philadelphia in 1889. It is still one of the best of the Jersey-grown stewing and canning tomatoes, and remains highly productive from midseason to frost. The 2 ½ to 3 inch oblate fruits normally hang in clusters of 4 to 6. Heavy fruiting requires staking.

What are the pros? pretty tomato

What are the cons? Poor germination, sparse fruit

Review:

I will start by saying, we had a strange spring here in Philadelphia. Cold for a long time and then no rain, then tons of rain, then hot, hot, hot. I wanted to like these tomatoes. But out of all the varieties I grew, these got blight and produced very, very sparsely. Despite my proximity to New Jersey and how these are supposed to be a Jersey variety, I was very disappointed. I'll try a couple of plants next year just to see if it was a weather related thing, but not impressed.

What are the pros? Prolific, great shape & firm

What are the cons? None to speak of

Review:

This is a nice tomato. Solid tomato flavor and stands up well for canning and other purposes. I'm very impressed by how prolific this little producer is. Lots of consistent nicely shaped fruit. This is a classic Jersey tomato. Well ripened it makes perfect sandwich slices but really shines if you want to peel and put up. The tomatoes hold their shape so well. I originally grew this for sentimental reasons, memories of an old gardening friend. It is a classic Jersey tomato and it brought me back. I'll keep growing it because it's a good preserving tomato.
