About Maerchenwald (Märchenwald)

‘Maerchenwald’ is a surprisingly dark and matte-looking green when ripe tomato from the ‘Kleverhof’* seed company in Elmenhorst, Germany.
The vigorous, indeterminate vines of this plant have regular, anthocyanin-rich leaves and stems, yielding prolific yields of round, almost black, intensely colored antho shoulders and green-bottomed saladettes weighing 2-4oz./60-100g. The fruit is full-flavored with spicy and juicy flesh and a rich, fruity aroma. Ideal for salads, snacking, gazpacho, tomato wine, chutney, or a green bloody mary. This variety has good resistance to Late Blight and Blossom End Rot. Midseason, about 70-80 days to maturity.

*’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.
