TOMATO – San Marzano

(50 seeds)

$3.95

(7 customer reviews)

Make your own tomato paste at home

If you like the tang of tomato but prefer something a little less acidic, San Marzano tomatoes will suit you well. However, you might be surprised by the elongated, almost chilli-like shape. Like other heritage veg varieties, San Marzano runs true from seed when open-pollinated, allowing you to collect and save seeds year after year. Owing to the few seed cavities it contains, it’s great for making tomato paste, for drying and for cooking.

How to Sow

Tomatoes are best sown in trays about 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow seeds about 5mm deep and keep the soil temperature to about 20 celcius until germination. Once the plants have grown their second leaves the seedlings can be transplanted into larger individual pots. Keep the tomato seedlings in a warm sunny position and maintain moisture levels. When planting out, position the plants so that soil covers the entire stem up to the first leaves. This will increase root development and ensure a healthy strong plant. Plants should be placed in full sun and rich soil.

How to Harvest

Tomatoes ripened on the vine will be ready once they show their mature colour. The fruits can also be squeezed and should yield slightly when ripe. If frost occurs and temperatures drop late in the season all tomatoes can be picked. Tomatoes that do not ripen on the vine can be ripened indoors by being placed in a warm place out or direct sun.
