The original Rutgers was developed at Rutgers University in New Jersey in the 1920s. This is an improved strain for better yields and better disease resistance.
A super reliable tomato that produces perfect fruit that are all purpose. Super productive! Fruit are also larger and a touch sweeter than the original Rutgers - averaging 5-9 oz. Big enough to slice for a sandwich. It’s wonderful for salads,canning, sauce, juicing, and just plain fresh eating. Someone I know calls it a tomato machine.
