Almost no seed cavities—the ultimate canning and paste tomato.
The long, blocky fruits mature with a small, discreet seed cavity that can be scooped out, leaving all meat. This means much less boiling to get a first class paste. The shape is also good for canning, and excellent for drying. San Marzano Italian Heirloom Tomatoes proudly maintains characteristics of the perfect paste, puree or canning tomato. San Marzano matures in clusters, holds well on the vine and in storage, is crack resistant, and processes well due to its solid nature. For these reasons, San Marzano Tomatoes remain Italy's top choice as the perfect canning tomato.
