Aren't they Gorgeous?
75 days. Determinate. Marglobe tomatoes can be traced back to 1917 but were introduced by the USDA in 1925. Medium size red fruit make excellent canning tomatoes or sliced for a sandwich or salad. Good size and uniform deep scarlet color, 7 to 10 ounce fruits. Great for humid climates.
I highly recommend heirloom marglobe tomatoes. They are especially great for Florida gardeners as they grow well in humid climates.
For growing instructions check out the Growing from Seed page.
If you intend to grow organically or you would like to reduce your dependency on expensive treatments, use Companion planting.
Companion plants include: asparagus, basil, beanborage, carrots, celery, chive, cucumber, garlic, head lettuce, marigold, mint, nasturtium, onion, parsley, pea, pepper, marigold, pot marigold and sow thistle.
I especially like to grow borage and calendula around my tomatoes. They are beautiful flowering plants, attract beneficial insects and can be eaten in salads. Calendula is great for tinctures or beauty products.
