Marina B

About Marina B

There is some conflicting information about this variety: According to Sand Hill Preservation Center , this is a “paste tomato, pale-red flesh, above average yield”. Seed was obtained from a Canadian seed trader who received the seed from a woman in Russia. There is also a ‘Marina A’ variant.
Another source indicates that this is a dehybridized version of the paste F1 hybrid Marina F1 that was bred and vended by Sakata Seed America. The selection and de-hybridization was done by Canadian Seed savers Dan and Val McMurray of Wynndel, BC, Canada in the early 2000s.
In fact, the seeds for this tomato, along with Marina A seeds, were obtained by Denise Salmon of Vancouver, BC, Canada, from a woman named Marina in Romania in a seed trade in the late 1990s/early 2000s. Early, indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce 1-2 oz., red, round, oblate, fruits that grow in clusters of 6. Very good texture and taste for an early tomato. Not sweet. First fruits were seedless. Produces well in containers.
