Tomato, San Marzano 2. 80-82 days. Indeterminate. Classic Italian plum tomato for sauce & canning. This is the standard tomato used to make sauce in Italy. Large fruit (5-6 ounce) & plant. Good disease resistance. 1 gram packet, approx. 250 seeds.

I grew three of these in large pots on my deck. Though planted late (mid May), the plants really thrived (thanks in part to an automated watering system we also set up). The tomatoes ended up smaller than the Roma tomatoes I planted at the same time, but the plants were much more productive and the fruit was exceptionally flavorful. Great for roasting and making paste. Next year we plan to plant more of these.

This is the first San Marzano type that have really been successful with in Central Florida. Great fruit, good disease and bug resistance. Fruits are plentiful, large, meaty and flavorful.

Last year i grew my first San Marzano Tom's and they where great. Large very meaty little water and few seeds, great for making a sauce.
This year i order more seeds and will plant more.
I gave some to friends (I had to really like them) and now they are hooked. It seems I'm starting a new tom. fad here in our little town.
I am 100% Italian and love these tom's

Very large San Marzano fruit. Plentiful, thick and meaty. Flavorful for sauces, soup and canning. This is one of my favorites
