Rutgers tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is an heirloom that has been a favorite since its introduction at Rutgers University in 1934. It has a vivid red color and thick flesh with an outstanding flavor that is excellent for both canning and slicing. Thick, tall vines will produce an abundance of tomatoes, with a initial crop and later flushes of fruit.
Home-grown heirloom tomatoes have so much more flavor than supermarket hybrid varieties. There is a wide range of shapes including cherry, beefsteak, grape, paste, roma, and in many more colors than red, including yellow, purple, black, pink, white or even green. Mix with fresh mozzarella and basil for a summertime salad or bruschetta, make fresh pico, a tomato tart, smoky and spicy tomato jam, or preserve them (dried or canned).
