History: The Rutgers tomato was developed by Campbell Soup Co. in 1928 from a cross of Marglobe and J.T.D. It was later refined by Rutgers Univ. in 1943 for more disease resistance. The Rutgers tomato once accounted for 70% of the processed tomatoes in the United States. A fine New Jersey heirloom.
