General Information: Easy-to-care-for, prolific plants provide loads of long, blocky tomatoes that mature with a small seed cavity that can be scooped out, leaving all meat. This means much less boiling is needed to get a first-class paste. The shape is also good for canning, and excellent for drying.
Idea & Tips: Water thoroughly twice per week, and try to water early in the day so that plants will dry off before evening.
Tomatoes prefer regular feeding once the fruit sets, but too much early in the season will grow a large plant with fewer tomatoes.
Mulching helps ensure an even supply of moisture.

Grower Information: The best-known paste tomato! Long, blocky fruits are easy to seed, leaving plenty of meat for a first-class paste or sauce. San Marzano is also delicious canned or dried.
