Details

These tomatoes are named after the region of San Marzano near Naples, Italy. San Marzano is a prolific producer of bright red, slim, 2-3”, plum-type tomatoes. This low sugar, low-acid Italian tomato is meaty, has excellent flavor and makes the best sauce. It is prized for its low seed count, easily removed skin, and for producing a rich tomato flavor when cooked down. They are used by gourmet chefs who slice diagonally and top with Parmesan slices and pesto for an appetizer. They are also a great candidate for oven-drying and canning. As shown in the last photo, it's also great for making amazing tomato and basil focaccia bread!
