This is a newer selection of this famous Italian cooking tomato. Long, cylindrical fruits 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? None

What are the cons? Blossom rot

Review:

One of several paste tomatoes we grew this year and almost every single San Marzano 2 had blossom rot. Other plants just a few feet away (and on same drip line) were fine.

Review:

I wanted to update on my earlier review. OMG these things are great! Heavy HEAVY producers. It was just unreal. I got on average 60-100lbs per plant. Just today i brought in 3 three gallon buckets off 27 plants! I read all the tips on blossom end rot so heres what I did. When i transplanted them when few inches tall i put into the hole a handful of manure and a heaping spoonful of home depots brand bone meal (in the green bag). As the plant grew i just side dressed with manure and bone meal. I did have a little aphid trouble at first but was easily fixed with pyrethrin and they bounced right back. These plants get tall and heavy. I used 3" square posts and had them 6' tall. They easily surpassed that and they broke over from the weight of fruit on top. Next year i will build a frame from pole to pole and make a arbor to support them.

Review:

I ordered these and then read the reviews. I git so scared of the blossom end rot I prepared well. You see this is my first year garden at this property. We have sandy loam soil. First I amended the new garden plot with last winters horse manure. Was powdery and composted perfect. I grew these from seed and transplated in late april once about 4 inches tall. In EACH hole i sprinkled bone meal before planting. Doing that so far I havent had one instance on BER. Each plant is currently loaded and grow so fast I have to tie up plant every other day. Get you a 6' post. You are gonna need it! I side dressed them again with the composted manure again at about a month in garden. They love it and look extremely healthy. I will say the aphids have been my only bane. They attacked these viciously but left my other varieties alone. I treated woth pyrethran today. Hoping they keep cranking on as great as tgey have been. Loving them so far!

My Go To Tomato
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Sauce or Salsa

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

Great tomato flavor and not overly sweet- so easy to use for salsa or a sauce. Low water content so processing time is minimal. Can cut off top and squeeze into food processor after blanched. Perfect size for this. KEEP WELL MULCHED so the moisture level stays even. 1 inch of water per week. I don't prune at all, just initial suckers. Blossom End Rot happens when it's allowed to dry out. The roots can't absorb the calcium that's already there. They shut down until hydrated again, so you'll have BER until then. Big root systems help, so a contained system would be a challenge for it. Since they're for canning, I don't rush them. I have a few early varieties for that purpose. Again, keep well mulched and grow a massive root system to support heavy production. Most soils have plenty of calcium already...they just need to be hydrated to absorb it.

What are the pros? Good fruit

What are the cons? Slow to maturity here in NH

Review:

This was my first time growing these. The plant was hearty and robust and seemed to resist blight which is a problem in my garden. It had plenty of fruit, but they were sooooo slow to ripen. They seemed susceptible to blossom end rot as it was my only tomato plant to develop this problem. The fruits I did get were very nice and were meaty and beautiful. This is probably better suited to more southern climates than mine. I would have to say that it was a fun experiment to grow, but because of my short growing season, I will pass on these guys in the future. If I lived in the south, they would probably be a regular in my garden.
