Heirloom. Marglobe yields tasty, smooth, firm tomatoes on determinate vines. An open-pollinated heirloom that was released by the US Department of Agriculture in 1925, Marglobe has been in demand for generations, and it has served as a parent for many hybrids developed in the twentieth century. Plants in our Alabama test garden, where growing conditions are excellent, bear about 50 pounds of fruit each over a two-month harvest period. Stake or cage for best results.

It was one of the first tomatoes with good resistance to verticillium wilt (V) and fusarium wilt (F).

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.
