The Marglobe tomato is an old heirloom variety with natural disease resistance that is an ancestor of many hybrid varieties. Its name was derived from its ancestors the 'Globe' and 'Marvel' tomatoes. It produces a heavy yield of fruit with a typical size of 8- to 10-ounces but can produce larger fruit as well. This tomato is one of the most vigorous and disease resistant of the standard tomato varieties. It is resistant to Fusarium Wilt and is said to resist tomato blight well even in wet weather. These tomatoes are globe shaped, smooth and bright red right to the stem. The Marglobe has also been noted for resistance to blossom end rot.
