Germination: Sow seeds in early spring in a warm greenhouse. Germination is usually quick and good. Pot up the seedlings into individual pots of fairly rich compost as soon as the first true leaf appears and plant them out after the last expected frosts.

Looking for a tomato that delivers flavor and quality just like it did in the good old days? Look no further than the Lycopersicon lycopersicum 'Rutgers', a classic heirloom variety created by Rutgers University in the 1930s. This tomato was once the main commercial tomato grown in New Jersey for many years and was used for canning, juice and the fresh market. It has an abundance of medium-sized, round, bright crimson tomatoes that boast a delicious flavor. Unlike the newer, flavorless and hard modern varieties that have taken over the commercial world, this old standby is a true gem that won't disappoint. So, bring back that classic and delicious taste with Lycopersicon lycopersicum 'Rutgers' on your plates.
