Want a CHAMPION tomato? San Marzano is an interesting old heirloom SAUCE tomato. However, unlike many heirloom tomatoes out there this one PERFORMS. On our organic farm we’ve trialed over 30 heirloom tomatoes and narrowed it down to a very few, and this is one. We also trial them in wet, humid conditions where tomatoes are challenging.

After years of our own selection process for disease resistance, productivity and crack resistance, we now have a CHAMPION tomato. Fruit are regularly close to or around one pound! Not only is it’s size impressive, but this tomato is MEATY, very thick, has very few seeds and has some of the best sauce tomato flavor around. Makes incredible sauce! Far, outperforms ROMA tomatoes in size, quality and disease resistance. Organically Grown.

Story of this Seed:

Originally an Old World heirloom tomato. Given to us by a gardening friend in Michigan, we have been growing it out for a number of years now, selecting as described above for quality.

Growing Tips:

Start indoors 4-6 weeks before your last frost. Plant in full sun. Plant deeper than it was in the pot or tray, it will root rapidly. Make sure to trellis or cage it.
