About JTD

J. T. (John Thompson) Dorrance developed a unique line of condensed soups for the Campbell company In 1887. He created condensed soup out of hardy stock ingredients, slashed the price of soup from thirty cents to ten cents per can, and revolutionized the industry. By 1922, soup was such an important part of the company’s presence in America, that Campbells formally added “Soup” to its name. To produce a distinctive, and now famous, label, Campbell used the red and white school colors of Cornell University. The ‘J.T.D.’ tomato was named in honor of Dorrance and was bred by the Campbell Soup Company for specific characteristics for growing in New Jersey, and for its own factory use. JTD has the historical significance of being used as a parent in the development of many other important tomato varieties.
Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce large yields of 6-16 oz., red, round, oblate fruits that are famous for their great, well-balanced, rich flavors.
