This tomato was bred in the early 1900’s by a USDA botanist who crossed two varieties: Marvel and Globe. So the logical name of the offspring? Marglobe!
This variety was one of the earliest known to offer good disease resistance to Fusariam Wilt and Verticillium Wilt.
And it’s an early maturing variety, requiring just around 75 days to maturity. That makes it a popular choice for northern areas with short growing seasons.
Marglobe is a determinate variety that produces smallish to medium sized red fruits averaging around 5 to 7 ounces, with an old fashioned, tomatoey acidic tang. A particularly good variety for canning.
