Tomato – Ruthje (Ecologically produced)
A bright red greenhouse tomato with an exceptionally aromatic flavour. This variety was breed 1996 in Germany by Ulrike Behrendt specifically for organic cultivation. Flavour and resistance to fungal disease was the main focus of the selection. It can deal well with a low intake of nutrients which promotes good taste. The firm fruits should be left on the plant until fully coloured and will keep for a long time on the plant. They can be stored and will also after-ripen. The plant has strong dark green almost shiny leaves, and short internodal length.
Ruthje stands out for its aromatic taste and was one of our favourites in the 2018 tomato trials. If you only wanted to grow one kind of tomato, this would be an excellent choice.
