We don't have a cool climate, so those positives of this variety aren't needed here. Not much flavor, well behind Celebrity, Cherokee Purple & others. Only fair production so far.

First I found time Early Marmande in my area, Salem Oregon. I have been growing tomatos for over 40 years, this one is absolutely best ever that I've grown, for taste, skin and fruit set.
Ripe tomato as large as softballs, bright red and blemish free. Planted last week in May and started harvesting a few the fiirst of August & continued until second week of October...large ones enough to make four BLT

Suggest you try Early Marmande if you are into growing tomatos

My first tomatoes ripened July 15th, as early as Early Girl. Smaller than advertised - average weight 5 oz. My packet of seeds lists plant as semi-determinate.

An early red beefsteak type which differs from Rouge de Marmande in that they have resistance to Verticillium Wilt and Fusarium Wilt. Has ability to set fruit in cool climates (below 50 degrees F. Grew reasonbly well here. Fruits are medium size, about the size of Rutgers but beefsteak shape. Some catfacing, but most fruits are usable.
