nightshade family Solanum lycopersicum


San Marzano 2 tomatoes

This variety gives a large crop of medium-sized, very fleshy fruits. The fruits are more round than the Elba type, and less susceptible to blossom end rot. For tomato puree, this variety is quite simply the best. It has low juice content and few seeds. When boiled, its wonderful flavours are released to make the perfect sugo.

Sow in early March into seedling trays in a warm place. Transfer to pots when about 5 cm high. Transplant into the field from May 20 at a distance of 80 ✕ 80 cm. Tie up to stakes or trellis strings. Also break some side branches to promote full fruiting. Protection from rain is recommended. Tip for mixed culture: Basil and parsley intercrop beautifully.
