Strafford, New Hampshire, United States
Frost Free Season: 143 - 163 days
Soil Texture: Loam
Garden Size: Small - Less than 400 square feet (20' x 20')
Sun Exposure: 6 to 8 hours per day

Grew these this year for the first time. Seeds from Rutgers University. Plants grew well despite dry then very wet weather here in the northeast. Plants have reached over 8\' high when staked and pruned to a single stem. Good producer or medium sized fruit, some 4" in diameter. Nearly all of them have cracking at the shoulders which renders a fair portion of each tomato unusable. Flavor is very good - old time taste - but a notch below Ramapo, another old Jersey tomato. Overall, though, a decent tomato if you\'re looking for the old time tomato flavor.
