Asked May 9, 2016, 12:48 PM EDT

Where can I purchase Rutgers 250 tomatoe plants for my home garden. I just read about all the research William T. Hlubik, Agent in Middlesex County who is with Rutgers Cooperative Extension in NJ. Also Thomas J. Orton, a professor of plant biology ane pathology held a tasting in Margate, NJ at the Farmers Market last summer. My husband and I drove from Havertown, PA down to Margate and sampled the tomatoe in the tasting and submitted our choice for taste.We are in our mid eighties and we remember the Taste of NJ tomatoes. Please answer my request.
