Rouge de Marmande - 1st prize
We have decided the best tomato of the season has been the beautiful Rouge deMarmande. Sown from Franchi seed well after some of the other varieties, it is the tallest, most productive and has sweet, juicy fruits up to 250 grams! We nicknamed this one Big Bertha.
Franchi seeds are available at Italian supermarkets such as Cardamone in Fairfield - www.cardamonegourmet.com.au and can be purchased online at www.theitaliangardener.com.au
