I tasted one of the "Rutgers" last night and let me tell you it was the best tomato I have ever eaten in my life...EVER!!!

But seriously the tomato was OK, sweet with a little acid/tart flavor, nothing to write home about but just a decent tomato, although I was impressed at how thin the skin was.



  • Anyhow here's a few pics of the tomato and plant.

This type of tomato is sold in my area, "Southwest Illinois" and is labeled "Mr. Stripy".

Interesting. I'm not familiar with that variety. I'm curious about its taste.

Some times seeds get mixed, and not just at home. Thus I have a poblano type pepper among my ox horn types all from the same seed packet.  I like those stripy tomatoes, I grow striped Romans, they might be the best tasting of all.

I have grown Mr. Stripey, love it.  Very delish.  And gorgeous!

Got this baby this year from Bakers as a freebie:

https://i.servimg.com/u/f62/19/25/77/83/8f8d8310.jpg

Small, not a cherry, but about 1 1/2 inch diameter, very pretty! Has a French sounding name...

Black Vernissage!  Thanks, sanderson!

The Black Vernissage is very striking with dark red flesh. I think they are a little bland and, if picked "ripe", a little mealy. They do add a good red touch with the rest of the canned tomatoes, though.

I couldn't have explained them any better. I wont grow them again. They do taste a bit better when picked earlier.
I roasted mine for sauce.

Yes, exactly.  They are not the most flavorful thing.  I didn’t plant Sunburst (or Sunsugar, can’t remember) in turn but this is not a Sunsugar replacement.  Nope!  But lovely, and probably good in a nice pasta toss.

@SQWIB, That's a beautiful tomato.  The broken-ness of the stripes, and the roundness of the blotches that make up the stripes make me think that tomato has some genetics from Wild Boar Farm's tomatoes. Here's an example:
https://wildboarfarms.com/product/cascade-lava/

You could have gotten a stray seed of another sort, or you could have gotten an accidental hybrid (mom was a Rutgers, dad was some other tomato, with the deed mediated by an bee that traveled further than average.) Save some seeds (you'll need to 'ferment' them, there's likely a thread about it around here somewhere if you -- or anyone else reading along -- is/are unfamiliar with the technique.)  If it's a stray seed of another non-hybrid, you'll be able to use the seeds to get the same tomatoes next year. If it's an accidental hybrid, it's hard to say what any given seed from a hybrid will yield, but it's fun to roll the dice if you have the planting space.
