Rutgers - Knowledgebase Question

I live in northern Indiana. I would like to plant Rutgers tomatoes; however, I was unable to find any plants last year. I found seeds though. If I start them indoors, would they do okay here? I have heard they require a very long growing season.

The catalog I checked says that the plant matures in about 75 days--this is similar to many of the beefsteak varieties like 'Burpee's Big Boy' or 'Brandywine'. You should be able to grow 'Rutgers'; just be sure to provide the plant with optimum growing conditions, including plenty of water and regular feeding.
