Heirloom, Non-GMO Rutgers Tomato Seed Growth Habits:

Rutgers tomato seeds produce medium to large determinate plants. This makes growing Rutgers tomatoes in containers fairly simple.

While the Rutgers tomato heirloom seed variety was originally released by the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) in 1934 as a cultivar developed to thrive in New Jersey, it can be grown in all USDA hardiness zones as an annual during the frost-free growing season. Like most tomatoes, Rutgers heirloom tomato seeds thrive in slightly acidic to neutral soil that drains well.

When cared for with enough sun (8+ hours per day) and consistent watering to prevent cracking and blossom end rot, Rutgers heirloom tomato plants produce 6- to 8-oz. oblate fruit with an exceptional flavor that is mildly tangy and meaty.
