An American classic that hails from New Jersey! Rutgers Tomato is a poster child for its kind with beautiful globe-shaped fruits that are great for fresh eating or canning. Fine flavor and heavy yields make it a gardener’s favorite! Determinate plants mature in 60-100 days.
Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors and transplant to the garden after the last frost date. Choose a sunny location and provide plants plenty of room by spacing two feet apart in rows separated by five feet. Provide support and mulch well to conserve moisture and reduce weeds.
Fruit that is fully ripened on the vine has a much fuller flavor than fruits that are picked early and then allowed to ripen. However, if temperatures drop, you’ll want to bring all fruits (green or not) indoors. Store in a cool, dark spot — or paper bag — and green fruits will turn red within a week or two.
