A juicier version of one of the Garden State’s most iconic crops is now out, according to a team of researchers at Rutgers University. The Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station in Cumberland County released its "Rutgers 250" tomato seeds. The group said they are an improvement on the classic Jersey tomato… "It’s what you think of when you think back to the tomatoes you had when you were younger," horticulturist Tom Orton said. Peter Nitzsche, agricultural agent for Rutgers Cooperative Extension, said researchers hope the new version mimics the original Rutgers tomato but with a "better plant and fruit quality."
