I have been growing tomatoes commercially for 32 years, I can still buy all but
one of the old hybrids of 32 years ago and that variety is Ramapo. Rutgers
research farm has the last of the seed and it may be reintroduced in the future.
Often a hybrid is not available is renamed. There are so many great hybrids to
choose from today none of this matters much...Bob.
