I read awhile back that a tomato was being reintroduced into the US from
Europe. Apparently it was once in the US but seemed to go out of favor with
gardeners. This year 600,000 seeds were to be imported. Does anyone know
the name of this tomato?
Marglobe is good Jersey Tomatoe.
Bill in the garden state. Hard to tell as I bike about and see farms
as developments or empty fields. Still got Olsen less then a mile away
but he's getting up there. One man one tractor with help at harvest.
Younger folks across the way are sixties at old man OlsenΉs. Same guy
that gave Frank and I a nickle to unload a tractor trailer of peaches in
1960. Learned a valuable lesson.
Very little truck framing or farm stands or a place for pulled plants.
Have to go 20 miles for plants or 2 mile and pay twice at a local garden
I wish I had some old line Rutger Tomato seed. Those had more acid and
better taste. The plants I get now labeled Rutger have been cross
polinated until the taste is not much different from all the other
If they have been cross pollinated, they are no longer Rutger's. Cross
pollination is unlikely even when growing different varieties in close
proximity, unless you have potato leaf varieties close.
Could also could be dependant upon the seed source and/or plant source
and your soil condition. Soil and weather conditions and the region in
which they are planted are big factors in taste.
Plant mis-labeling is also not uncommon.
If you want an acidic tomato with great "old time" taste, try
Brandywine, unless of course, you already have. :-)
