About Maerchenengel (Märchenengel)

‘Maerchenengel’ is a very unusual colored, eye-catching tomato from the ‘Kleverhof’* seed company in Elmenhorst, Germany.
Strongly vigorous, yet slender, indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce white, elongated cherries with anthocyanin splashed shoulders weighing 0.9oz./25g. They have a subtle flavor when harvested in the early ripe stage, but develop a sweet, slightly fruity aftertaste as they are fully mature. An excellent choice for fresh snacking or using in tomato salads, or jams. This hardy variety ripens for enjoyment early-to-midseason, about 50-70 days after transplant.

*’Kleverhof’ seed company developed the extensive Märchen Series (Märchen is fairytail in German) including the following varieties: Märchenfee, Märchenelf, Märchenmonster, Märchengold, Märchenglanz, Märchenfrucht, Märchenengel, Harzfeuerchen, Märchenzauber.
