OTHER: Rutgers is a well known popular heirloom tomato from New Jersey. Red Rutgers Tomatoes have slightly flattened globe shape fruit that weighs 8 oz. The determinate plants produce a huge first crop, followed by several more flushes. The fruit has nice uniformity, & Rutgers is a great all purpose tomato good for market or home.
Tomatoes have a wide variety of health benefits. They are high in the antioxidant lycopene, & contain high amounts of vitamins A, B, & C as well as many other vitamins & minerals.
Tomatoes can be eaten fresh like a fruit, added to salads, in salsa, or sliced for sandwiches. They can be cooked in any number of ways like grilled, fried, baked, or stewed, made into tomato bisque, added to stews, mixed veggies, or pretty much anything :) Of course without tomatoes, there would be no ketchup or red sauce for pizzas & pastas. Tomatoes can be stored by freezing, canning, or drying them.
Tomato plants are either considered to be determinate or indeterminate. What’s the difference? The fruit of determinate plants all mature at nearly the same time. Determinate plants continue to grow & produce fruit until frost.
