The Moreton Hybrid tomato was discontinued a few years back but now with a cooperative agreement between Rutgers University and Harris Seeds it's back! Rutgers had interest in reintroducing old hybrid tomato varieties that were known for their great eating quality. Through this project, we are happy to offer Moreton Hybrid tomato seeds again. Although it is not firm, its large, meaty and delicious fruit mature early. It has an oblate shape and rich red color. Its indeterminate vines do best if staked or trellised and produce over a long period. Resistant to Verticillium.
