San Marzano Tomato Starter Live Plants - 3" pot
A San Marzano tomato is origin from Italy, a specific variety of plum tomato that has been bred over the years for packaging and long shelf life. Like other plum tomatoes, the fruit of a San Marzano is oblong and contains only two seed compartments. They are red and their appearance is quite similar to Roma tomatoes, but San Marzano tomatoes are thinner and more pointed than Romas. San Marzano tomatoes also have thicker walls, so they're meatier than Roma tomatoes. Fewer seeds mean San Marzanos have a thicker, less watery interior, which makes them an exceptional choice for tomato sauce. San Marzanos also have a stronger, sweeter flavor than their closely-related Roma cousins, so many chefs consider them a must-have ingredient for which there is simply no substitute.
