Gardeners' Notes:

Marmande is listed as VF (Hybrid?) 67 day red pleated determinate tomato on seed package. Grown 2009 Edmonton, AB (52 deg latitude, zone 2-3)/ It set and ripened many 3" fruit of balanced flavor and good slicer texture on a strong vine that did not exceed 36" tall. Ripened in August without the advantage of south facing wall, and continued through September due to longer than usual warmth. No cracking. Acid enough for canning. Would grow it again.

A European market favorite originating in France. The flat 5 to 10 oz. lobed fruits have irregular shoulder ribbing and outstanding deep rich flavors. Very early.

A 1987 entry from Asgrow that is no longer listed by Seminis. I can find no information on this cultivar, but since heart and beefsteak shapes are mutually exclusive, it may be one or the other but not both.
