Rouge De Marmande

“Early Adelaide Type”

Often grown as the one to ‘beat your mates’, this tomato can be grown to have fruit by christmas. It will ripen at slightly lower (20-23deg cel.) tempartures than other mid-late varieties. It is also one of those classical looking segmented fruit that I call an ‘adelaide’ type. Fruit shops love this one for flavour and it is a good seller in season, which with greenhouse growing has now become much longer. You never used to see them in Melbourne in winter !

The plant grows to a medium height and will benefit from the removal of early sideshoots.
