The Q&A Archives: Ramapo Tomato

Question: My father used to grow an excellent variety of tomato called Ramapo or possibly Ramapole. I can't seem to find it anymore. I would like to know if there is seed company or grower that I soulc still obtain it from.

Answer: According to a website on Heirloom Tomato Varieties,

"The Harris Seed Company's Ramapo is also an outstanding tomato requested by many farmers' market customers, but it has been phased out by the company, because of low overall demand. When I heard it was to be no more, I called the company and begged for their remaining packets and was sent several with thirty seeds each, which will last me for a few more years."

You might contact Harris Seed Co. and see if they have any left.
