Press Release:  14th Annual Heirloom Tomato Transplant Sale Sponsored by the Women's Club of Ramsey

The Woman's Club of Ramsey is please to announce they will be sponsoring their 14th Annual Heirloom Tomato Transplant Sale on May 20th. The sale will again be held at the Masonic Lodge on the corner of Lake Street & Franklin Turnpike in Ramsey between 10 am - 4 pm.
This annual sale is a fund raiser for the Woman’s Club of Ramsey and helps to raise money for their charitable work. 

There will be a large variety of Heirloom tomato plants offered as well as a limited offering of some Heritage Hybrid varieties, the most famous of which is the Ramapo Tomato. This variety was known as the “true Jersey tomato” 30 years ago and has not been commercially available for years.  Farmer Rich will also be offering the Moreton variety, which also was a favorite Jersey tomato and often referred to as the "4th of July" tomato.

 

There will also be a great selection of herb, eggplant, squash, cucumber artichokes & pepper plants in addition to the tomato transplants. These are grown by Susan & Richard Sisti of Catalpa Ridge Farm and as of this time, they have more than 90 different varieties of heirloom tomato plants growing to be offered at the sale on May 16th.  Some old-standby varieties such as Pink & Yellow Brandywine, Rutger's and Yellow Pear will continue to be offered. Many new varieties have been added this year, such as Gold Medal, Rosso Sicilia, Moonglow and Paul Robeson to name a few. Preorders will be accepted prior to the sale to be picked up during the day of the sale. Anyone who wishes to see the current varieties that will be available are welcome to visit:
