Piccolo - San Marzano Nano Tomato Seeds

€3,00

Piccolo seeds for the contemporary garden. San Marzano tomatoes are, without doubt, gods of the tomato world. And, like any other god, they have their own creation myth: the story goes that the first San Marzano seed came to Italy in 1770 as a gift from the Viceroyalty of Perù to the Kingdom of Naples. They were first grown in San Marzano sul Sarno village and have since become known as ‘the most important industrial tomato of the twentieth century’.

With its firm, thick flesh and sweet taste, this variety was found to be perfect for the manufacture and exportation of pelati (peeled, tinned whole tomatoes), which have become popular all over the world. Indeed, pizza and pasta would not be the same without these distinctive, pointy, bright-red fruits. And this dwarf, determinate edition is no less than a god in miniature! 

A tomato is at its flavour peak when it becomes deep red in colour and has a firm texture when the fruit is squeezed gently. Cut them off the plant with scissors and keep a short stub of stem attached to prevent rotting.
