Marmande is a beefsteak type tomato which will produce large, uneven shaped fruits of a deep red colour. It is a later maturing variety and the rich, sweet flavour is well suited to using in salads as well as cooked dishes. Definitely worth waiting for. Stake and tie-in plants well to support the heavy fruits. (Cordon).
Cover seeds only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, eg a window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. Around time of last frost, set seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
