San Marzano Grafted

San Marzano has a special place in tomato mythology. Origin stories and rumors abound about where, when, and who this tomato came from, but a few facts are clear. Its name comes from an Italian town near Mount Vesuvius. Farmers there have been growing tomatoes similar to San Marzano for generations, selectively breeding them for paste. A preferred standard with Italian farmers. Compact and prolific producer of bright-red, slim, 3-4 inch, plum-type, tomatoes over a long season. A paste tomato with pointy end, heavy walls, few seeds and little juice, so it's great for a delicious tomato sauce. Crack resistant. For the non-grafted version of this plant, see San Marzano or Chinese Paste.
Plant has an indeterminate growth habit (needs a tall tomato cage).
