Ramapos Are Back!!

I was leafing through a catalog from The Natural Gardening Company (a lovely catalog but why anyone would think I'd be likely to order plants from California is a mystery) and I felt disoriented for a moment when I saw Ramapo tomatoes listed. But it's true! After I'd given up looking for them a couple of years ago it seems more persistent gardeners persuaded Rutgers to reintroduce them.

After years of growing some perfectly wonderful tomatoes we still remember the Ramapos I grew in Somerville, NJ in the 70's as the best tomatoes we've ever eaten. Even if they don't meet our fuzzy recollections I'm going to enjoy growing them again.
