60-100 days. Determinate. Good for canning, also excellent fresh; large red 8-oz globes. Good yields and flavor, large vines. A fine N.J. heirloom.

What are the pros? nice taste

What are the cons? low yield

Review:

I was very disappointed with this tomato. The breed came highly recommended Tastes great. Yield was very low compared to the other tomatoes I planted. I don't can, but it seems way too watery for canning, and lots of seeds. And while my other tomatoes are still producing flowers, these seem to be done for the season. I don't think I will grow them next year. I will try another red heirloom breed.Did have 100% germination rate of the seed I bought here.

Not bad far from a favorite.

What are the pros? Good flavor, uniform.

What are the cons? Too many seeds for me.

Review:

Tried it for the first time this summer. The taste was good. I like the slightly smaller size as I don't expect to always have a giant tomato on my plate. We got ripe fruit soon enough, and it was uniform. My only problem is it has too, too many seeds. I prefer to can and cook with a tomato that has less seeds. Others may approach this problem another way, it's just so much extra work.

the perfect tomato

What are the pros? uniform fruit

What are the cons? nothing, it's perfect

Review:

By far my favorite tomato to grow in the garden. Every year I have two plants dedicated to the Rutgers tomato. Very easy to grow, not prone to any diseases. Produces tons of 3 inch uniform tomatoes. I get so much fruit from this variety that I can't give them out -- my neighbors run when they see me walking their way with a box every other day (they can only eat so many tomatoes I guess). You will not be disappointed with this variety.

What are the pros? good quantity, vigorous fast

What are the cons? Drinks a lot

Review:

I've had these Rutgers Tomatoes three times now and it looks like they depend on loose tilled organic soil and a lot of good rain. They outgrow they outgrow their 5 foot tall gages . I got about 10 pounds per plant so far and there are a lot more tomatoes on the plant and more blooms growing all over . Most of the tomatoes are about 3 inches /- 1/4" . I will look for this type of tomato all the time now. They are tasty so it's salsa time.
