Rutger – our favorite tomatoes !

This legendary Jersey tomato, introduced in 1934, is a cross between J.T.D. (an old New Jersey variety from the Campbell Soup Co.) and Marglobe. Its flavor, both for slicing and cooking, is still unequaled.(i)

 


Ramapo hybrid (from Rutgers)

Ramapo became a gardener’s favorite due to its wonderful flavor combined with excellent fruit quality, reliability and production. It was one of the many delicious varieties grown by Jersey Tomato growers before commercial production switched to firm shipping varieties. Many years ago Ramapo tomato disappeared from seed catalogues. Seed companies were favoring varieties that produced higher yields and firmer fruit for commercial growers. Despite its disappearance, Rutgers continued to receive many requests throughout the years and it is now back. (i)


Kopek Hayasi

This is an old Turkish heirloom from Alakir Basin of Western Taurus Region, Turkey. Once widely grown in the region, Kopek Hayasi almost became extinct until, in early 2000s, seeds for it were recovered by Birhan Erkutlu and Tuba Gunal from an eco-village in France. Large, meaty fruits have excellent flavor and develop dark green shoulders which eventually fades into red as the fruits ripen. Plants are prolific and many fruits weigh around 1 lb. This is a multi-purpose, mid-season variety that can be used for fresh-eating, canning, and making sauces and paste. Seeds for Kopek Hayasi were sent to us by Volkan Yalazay, an heirloom gardener from Canakkale, Turkey. (i)
