Neutral b54red On Jul 18, 2010, b54red from Dothan, AL wrote:

Very good tasting hybrid with only moderate production but the taste more than makes up for the limited numbers. Medium size plant with heavy foliage and dense growth pattern and it shows good tolerance to fusarium wilt in my garden. I will certainly keep a couple of spots open for it each year.

Plant had more leaf curl than its immediate garden neighbors did; other people I know who are growing the new reissue this year had same experience. Is producing well, however, despite appearance, and first ripened tomato at beginning of August tasted delicious.

Positive Suze_ On Sep 6, 2006, Suze_ from (Zone 7b) wrote:

Bred by Rutgers University, seed not widely available at this time (seed production was stopped several years ago). Was an old favorite of many. Oblate red fruits. Known for its good taste, high production, and uniform size fruits.

There is also an open pollinated version of Ramapo available that several folks are now growing.
