Manx Marvel Tomato

Manx Marvel Tomato is a really worthy tomato that is really a treat!  This rare heirloom was given to me by a friend who highly recommended them.  I feel so fortunate to have been given seeds and I am happy that we grew them out because they were almost extinct, when in 2007 a Dr. Russel Sharp managed to obtain 4 seeds from an American seed bank.  The rest is history…

 

Manx Marvel Tomato Vines

While I only grew one vine, two of my friends grew out a few plants for me.  When compared to one of my friends, my vine came in at about 1 foot shorter than his,  growing to about 5 feet.   Since his vines  grew to about 6 feet tall I would say that in general vines are around 5-6 feet.  They were all loaded with fruits.

My vine demonstrated really good resistance to early blight and was a very rugged variety, blowing through extreme rain and heat.  This makes perfect sense since this variety was bred on the island of Man especially to withstand adverse conditions.  It is a very prolific too!

Manx Marvel Tomato Taste

The Manx Marvel Tomato taste is a bit different.  It’s sweetish but not too much, mild but not too much. There is a nice element of acidity too, but it kind of creeps up on you.  There is a good amount of juice on this one.  It’s a perfect tomato for cooking, canning, fresh eating and and fresh salsa.  Try some of our fresh seeds in your garden.  Let me know what you think.
