Plum Tomato Seeds

Tomato San Marzano Scatolone di ‘Bolsena’ – Solanum lycopersicum.

San Marzano, a town near Naples, is famous for its plum tomatoes. This variety is a superb cordon-type tomato from Bolsena in Lazio (near Rome) with an excellent flavour and good size which stores well.  

Italians really made the tomato their own after they were introduced into Europe by Christopher Columbus.

These tomatoes are great for slicing and are also reputedly one of the best cooking tomatoes in the world. Use them for stuffing, or to make passata for pizzas and pasta.

Harvest the last tomatoes just before they ripen and slice and fry or ripen them indoors.

Sowing 

Annual. Sow from February to May in pots of seed compost in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill.

Plant out into pots of potting compost when large enough to handle. Transfer into larger pots of rich compost, grow bags or direct in well-fertilized soil outside or under glass allowing 30cm between plants.

Stake and begin feeding when two trusses (flowering branches) have appeared and pinch out side-shoots.
