Description

75 days, determinate — The crack-resistant fruits are red, smooth and solid, weighing up to six ounces each. Its earliness favors its adoption in canning regions of Northern States where frosts and short seasons are common. Although it is classified as a determinate variety, it does have a sprawling growth habit.

Bred in 1917 by Fred J. Pritchard of the USDA by crossing the now presumed extinct ‘Marvel’ tomato with ‘Globe’. Released in 1925. One of the first disease resistant strains with a good resistance to Verticillium and Fusarium wilt.

‘Marglobe’ was credited with nearly single-handedly saving the Florida tomato industry in the early part of the twentieth century. ‘Marglobe’ is also historically significant in that it was a parent of many other later tomato varieties.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
