These seeds produce elongated, plum-like tomatoes with a firm texture and concentrated flavour, making them a favorited for many dishes.
San Marzano tomatoes lean towards sunny, warm conditions but can adapt to cooler areas. Additionally, they have demonstrated resistance to a range of tomato pests and diseases.
In the kitchen, San Marzano tomatoes are especially prized for sauces and pastes because of their low moisture and seed content. They're also a good source of vitamins A and C, along with other beneficial nutrients.
For optimal growth, use a nutrient-rich soil and choose an area that receives 6-8 hours of sunlight each day. As they progress in growth, they may need support like stakes or cages. It's vital to water them regularly, ensuring the soil stays moist but not overly wet.
