'Marmande' is a a classic beefsteak variety which produces the large, ribbed tomatoes that are commonly seen in the Continent. The meaty fruit has a superb flavour and is great for salads and cooking as it produces very few seeds. Plants thrive outdoors in a sunny position. Provide them with a sturdy stake to help support the weight of the heavy fruit.
