Comment: Rutgers is another favorite of mine. This plant was quite large and very healthy. It already has blooms on it and I know it won't be long before I will have another tomato sandwich. Love GrowJoy!

Comment: This was our first experience with GrowJoy. Not only did the plants arrive on time, and intact, it was clear they had been carefully packed. Great plants, along with easy to follow instructions. Our only regret is that we didn't find GrowJoy sooner!
