This is a newer selection of this famous Italian cooking tomato. Long, cylindrical fruit are filled with thick, dry flesh and few seeds. This heavy producing variety is a standard for many Italian farmers and chefs.

What are the pros? super healthy plants

What are the cons? end rot, poor taste

Review:

I grew these in my southwest AR garden this year, along with 3 other varieties of tomato. My black cherry, wild Texas cherry, and Arkansas traveler all did well. The San Marzano grew well, produced loads of fruit, and almost every one had blossom end rot. These were slow to ripen, so I was able to harvest for green tomato salsa, but since they are a paste tomato, they werent all that great in this application. Lesson learned, these wont make the cut again.

What are the pros? Heavy producer, acidic

What are the cons? Slow to mature in Colorado

Review:

I had a late start this year getting plants outside due to late frosts. By Sept. my fruits were starting to get ready, but then an early frost. Still loads of tomatoes. I don't know why others are complaining about the flavor... this is a canning tomato, and its perfect for that. I am planting this again.

What are the pros? Prolific; Matured early

What are the cons? Mealy; No flavor at all

Review:

Getting loads of tomatoes is no advantage when they don't have a good flavor. I'm so disappointed. These tomatoes get such great billing, but I found them to have an unpleasant texture and absolutely no taste. Can't see how they could possibly make a good sauce. If it is something I'm doing wrong, I'd love to know what it is so I couldgive them another try next year.

What are the pros? Healthy, very heavy producer

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was a perfect choice for my East Texas sand. They need very consistent water to avoid blossom end rot. Heavy producer and absolutely delicious for sauces. Did very well for me at market. This year I'll try drying some.
