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? Prolific fruiting

What are the cons? Blossom end rot on most fruits

Review:

I have thrown away almost all of these tomatoes because of blossom end rot. This starts when the tomato is tiny. An ocassional tomato escapes unscathed. I am growing several different varieties of tomatoes and am not having this problem with any of the others.

What are the pros? Flavor, color, good producer

What are the cons? Later to ripen then expected

Review:

San Marzano's were a nice addition to our tomatoes. We had a great harvest, it was a good producer, nice firm, flavorful. We used them mainly for sauce and canning. Think we had a near 100% on germination from seed, then after hardening, planted in acidified organic soil with a good dose of soil release tomatoe fertilizer, using a tomatoe ring. We covered our bed with agribon 90 (let's in most of the sun and keeps from sunburn) which helped with pests and blight. We did get blight at the end of the harvest after the covers blew off at the top but only list a few. We're planning to grow this year.

What are the pros? High yield

What are the cons? Susceptible to blossom end rot

Review:

I grew this tomato for two season and it has been susceptible to blossom end rot while my other tomato plants were fine in the same location. Also quite often the center of the tomato has been rotten as well. But still most of the tomatoes were good but were not outstanding in any way. The tomato has few seeds and is quite dry. I will not grow this tomato again. Maybe this tomato would do better in a warmer climate.

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.
