San Marzano Tomato Seeds
In addition to being an incredibly productive tomato plant, San Marzano tomatoes are responsible for some of the greatest Italian meals in existence! These plum tomatoes are the perfect for saucing and preserving to add to your favourite pasta or pizza dishes.
This Italian heirloom originated in the Italian town of San Marzano sul Sarno and is often compared to the Roma tomato. The San Marzano tomato however has a much thicker flesh with less seeds and a stronger, sweeter and less acidic flavour making it the must have tomato in your garden. And if that wasn't enough, the San Marzano tomato is capable of producing more than 15kg of fruit per plant with a longer growing season than its other tomato relatives!
