The San Marzano tomato is a classic elongated tomato variety from Italy. This tomato is fleshy and juicy, has a thin skin, little seed and is full of flavour. The ripening process of this age-old variety of plum tomato happens from the inside out. Even though it sometimes looks a little green, it is ripe and tasteful.
The San Marzano is widely used in soups, sauces, pasta sauces and salads due to its full flavour. And as a topping on hamburgers or in wraps. Peeled and chopped San Marzano tomatoes or puree from these delicious fruits belong on the original Italian pizza.
The San Marzano is an elongated tomato, has an average length of 8 to 10 cm, a diameter of 3 to 5.5 centimeters and a fruit weight of 60 to 140 grams.
