Tomato - San Marzano (Indeterminate)

$299 USD


Can a tomato be a celebrity? Ask the San Marzano Tomato—if you can get past its bodyguards. One commercial grower proclaims it the “gold standard for taste.” Martha Stewart devoted an entire blog post to it. Certified tomatoes from Italy are regulated. It even has its own Wikipedia page. But at the end of the day, it’s still just a tomato. One that’s longer and thinner than other plum/paste tomatoes, with exceptional tomato flavor, meaty and thin skinned for slicing, few seeds and fleshy for saucing, and very high yields. We’ve joined the fan club. How about you?
