The original Rutgers tomato was released in 1934 as the result of a collaboration between the Campbell Soup Co. and Rutger’s University. 

When the original Rutgers tomato was developed, it was considered more resistant to cracking than its predecessors and became a staple ingredient in the Campbell’s soup product line.

An old favorite, Rutgers is proven to be highly productive. The large, red fruits have a thick flesh with superior flavor. Strong determinate vines yield a large initial crop followed by several flushes of fruit. 

This is one of those classic tomatoes that has been used as a parent in the breeding of many other hybrids. 

Seldom has problems with cracking.
