Tomato, Marmande (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. 60-65 days. Indet.
Bush plants produce clusters of 4-6 oz flat, lightly ribbed, red fruit. Good firmness in addition to excellent flavor, two attributes that make Marmande a perfect variety for small market farms. Good when eaten fresh or cooked. Very dependably yields outdoors, even in cool summers. Traditional variety from the south of France, and a favorite of commercial growers there in the 1940-50s. Still very popular in French and English gardens. Possibly developed by Vilmorin Seed Co in 1897, though its heritage is uncertain as there are many strains and re selections. We sourced our selection from the 2007 Seedy Sunday Seed Swap in Brighton, England. Verticillium and Fusarium wilt resistant.
