If you're looking for a heirloom tomato that will take your sauce to the next level, look no further than the San Marzano tomato. This variety of tomato seed is named after the town in Italy where it was first grown, San Marzano Sul Sarno, and it's celebrated by top chefs as one of the best options for sauce-making. The San Marzano is known for its deep red color, its sweet taste, minimal seeds and its low acidity, making it the perfect addition to any pasta dish. These tomatoes are small and oval-shaped, similar in appearance to roma tomatoes. With its high yield and disease resistance, this seed is perfect for both beginner and experienced gardeners alike. So give your sauce the authentic Italian flavor it deserves with the San Marzano Tomato Seed. Indeterminate.

Start seed indoors 5-7 weeks before last frost. Provide plants with plenty of light to avoid tall, spindly tomato transplants. A sunny south-facing window or grow lights will be sufficient. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. A few weeks before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring; usually about 2 weeks after the your average last frost date. Set transplants in the ground and cover stem so that only 2-3 sets true leaves are exposed, resulting in a stronger root system.
