Solanum lycopersicum 'San Marzano' is the classic Italian paste tomato and considered by many to be the world's best! A low sugar, low-acid tomato, it has a high solids content and excellent flavor. It really does make the best sauce, ask any Italian! Also called, the "sausage" tomato, its long thin slices are great for sandwiches. Gourmet chefs often slice it diagonally and top it with Parmesan cheese slices and pesto for an appetizer. The oblong red fruits are 3"-4" long and 1.5" wide. An indeterminate variety, it must be caged or staked and produces fruit continually until the first fall frost. 70 - 80 days to maturity.
