Description

San Marzano Redorta - The Super-Size Sauce Tomato

A large paste tomato, 8 - 10 oz. with all of the flavor San Marzano is renowned for, but twice the size. Named for the Pizzo Redorta outside Bergamo, Italy. Very prolific in heat and cooler weather. 

An excellent paste tomato that is also great for canning, salsas, sauces and roasting. Lots of flesh with an easy to peel skin and a small seed cavity. The flavors are richer than San Marzano, with a balanced sweetness and tanginess with a touch of salt.

History

Tomatoes were grown as a crop in Mexico and Peru in pre-Columbian times, but the early history of domestication is not well known (most likely in Mexico). In Europe, tomatoes were grown as ornamentals (thought to be poisonous) and became popular as a food only in the 18th century.

Uses

Raw or cooked the tomato is one of the most widely used and versatile foods from your garden. Use fresh in salads, sandwiches, and salsas. Cooked in sauces and stews. Can be stuffed, dried, puree, paste or powdered. The uses are endless!

Growing Tip

Tomatoes suffer more transplant shock than other vegetables, but you can minimize this by hardening them off for a week or two first. This means setting them outdoors in their pots in a protected place so that they get some warm sun, a little gentle wind, and even some cool (not freezing) nights. This will help them adjust to some of the stresses of real life before having their roots transplanted into the ground.

    San Marzano Redorta

    Posted by Jake H on Feb 21st 2018

    Sowed these seeds in my seedling trays on 2/16, I checked them yesterday (2/20) and found that they had just EXPLODED. I went from not seeing anything breaking the surface to about a dozen 2" seedlings over night. I am very impressed with these seeds and can't wait to see how they perform down the road!
