A fine New Jersey heirloom tomato that produces beautiful 8 oz. globes. Rutgers is good fresh or for canning. Strong flavor and heavy yields on sturdy vines. Determinate. (60-100 days)
Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.
Start seed indoors 4 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Seeds are covered only slightly to allow light which sometimes assists germination. Keep the soil evenly moist. Seed trays are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3 to 10 days, depending on temperature, moisture, etc.
Move seedlings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window or under a grow light. After the last frost, transplant them into the garden and space 2 to 3 feet apart.
