(Semi-determinate) 76 days. [2016, in celebration of the 250th anniversary of Rutgers U.] After years of breeding and tasting, Rutgers University released this new “retro” variety to try to get back to the original “Jersey tomato” qualities of flavor, juiciness, texture, vigor, and all the other good stuff. Red round medium fruits. A tasty tomato bred for home gardeners – the classic Rutgers texture is now considered “too soft” for all the traveling that modern tomatoes do to get to big supermarkets!
