Marmande produces large fruits on indeterminate plants. The fruits are weighing up to 200 grams. The meaty tomatoes are great for cooking and grilling on a summer barbecue.
Sow the organic marmande about 1 cm deep into a seed tray or in small pots or cells, cover lightly, water and place them between 10-18 Celsius on a windowsill, heated greenhouse or propagator. Sow February - April. Germination takes 8-11 days.
As soon as seedlings are large enough to handle, prick out. Transplant the seedlings into individual small pots, later on they might need to be repotted if growing quickly and large.Make sure the leaves do not overlap. Temperatures during this stage should be 12-20 Celsius. Plant outside mid-May-June 80x60 cm, or keep in the greenhouse.
Keep watering in dry spells, especially when flowering and when the fruit is setting. Remove side shoots and stop the plant growth when 4 trusses have set.
