Marglobe,   open-pollinated
       

      (75 - 76 days)   Red, smooth, meaty, medium sized fruits 5 to 8 oz. on vigorous, stocky stems.  Marglobe was one of the first relatively early maturing tomatoes to exhibit good disease resistance and has been used for that reason in the parentage of many other varieties, including Rutgers.    It is a determinate variety and will produce most all of its crop over a 2 month period.
     Marglobe was created in 1917 by Fred J. Pritchard by crossing Marvel and Globe.  Its original release was in 1925 by the USDA.
