This is the original, world-famous Campbell's Soup Company soup tomato, bred in New Jersey by Campbell's breeder George B. Reynard and released in 1956. The soup-can painted by Andy Warhol in 1962 was no doubt full of these tomatoes, which were once grown by farmers across southern New Jersey. Today, this rare commercial heirloom is mostly grown by home gardeners in the region where it was developed. The fruit itself is globe shaped, with a sweet-and-sour flavor making it more than suitable for fresh eating, canning, or cooking. A great sandwich slicer too. Productive, semi-determinate plants with mid-season maturity. Grown ecologically in New Jersey by the Experimental Farm Network.

Review:

What a plain-looking little tomato, right? Maybe so, but boy does it make up for it in every other department! I picked these up by accident at a local greenhouse. Best mistake ever. Vines begin producing fairly quickly, and mine tended to be loaded with fruit. Flavor is pleasant with a hint of sweetness, not too much acid and possessing that hearty tomato soup flavor. Great canners, loved using them for cooking. Fruits don’t get terribly large and I never had any of mine crack. I’m in the high desert, so my plants are subjected to harsh, dry heat and wide temperature swings. These little guys did well enough that they’ve earned a permanent place in my seed library as a reliable producer.
