TOMATO – SAN MARZANO

40 seeds – Lycopersicon esculentum

This tomato is used in traditional Italian cooking & specified in Napolitano recipes & said to be the best-tasting tomato in the entire world. Long & slim, they are definitely a superior tomato. From Italy originally, but does extremely well here. Nice tall vines produce heavy yields of bright-red, 5 – 7cm, plum-type fruit over a long season. Excellent for making tomato paste but equally delicious as an eating tomato.

Sow in a good mix of soil and lightly cover – keep moist but not wet.  To transplant, plant deeper, up to the 1st set of true leaves, this increases rooting & speeds maturity. keep fertilized & evenly watered.
