As described by Osborne: "This was our first trial with Margo, an early maturing hybrid with a compact determinate plant habit. Margo has beautiful 6 oz round to oblate fruit with real tomato flavor. One of the earliest varieties to mature and one of the last to go down in the fall. We liked the uniform size and shape, the great flavor and last but not least the really good long shelf life."
