Better even than I'd hoped for!

I started these from seed and wasn't able to plant out until almost solstice 2022 because of the late frosts here in the high desert of Central Oregon. I trellised four plants and routinely pruned them as they climbed to 8-ft. From those four plants, we harvested at least ten gallons of tomato, perhaps more, in an area not known for tomato productivity. We sauced and dried many of those, and also made my daughters' favorite -- fried green tomatoes. Will absolutely plant again this spring
PS We did have some blossom end rot, but it came back under control with soil supplementation, and this variety was less impacted than some of my others

I was a little nervous because of the reviews of blossom end rot but these came out amazing! I made sure to use some lime in the planting hole, watered consistantly and I've got a great harvest. I heavily fertilized these plants.

Loved these Tomatoes!

Like the rest of the reviews I have seen mine started out with blossom end rot, but after heavy fertilization I stopped having problems. They are the best sauce tomato I have tried yet! They have a great texture and a natural sweetness that stopped me from having to add any sweetener to my sauce! I will definitely use these again!

These were terrible.
I plant upwards of 100 tomato plants each spring.
San Marzano is the vast majority of those plants as we sauce a LOT of tomatoes all summer.
I thought adding a variation would change things up. I started a flat of these in the greenhouse and planted 20 of them.
The plants compared to the regular SanMarz were about the same at the start, but things quickly went down hill for them as the summer progressed.
They were heavier calcium users and STILL suffered from Blossom end rot, while no other plant in the whole plot did. I planted them in different locations, so it's not like the plants were in bad locations. They they picked up blight, when no other plants did.
To top it all off the fruit was SMALL. nothing over 3 inches and 1.5 inches across.
These will not be returning to my garden and were a waste of space.

Lycopersicon lycopersicum The first ripe, juicy tomato of summer is a delicious milestone of the season for gardeners. Each year we test and evaluate more than 250 tomato varieties to bring you the most flavorful, best performing selections, for every desired use.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of transplant.

Determinate tomatoes: grow compactly, sprawling laterally, usually do not require staking, and fruit ripens over a short period of time
Indeterminate tomatoes: grow on long vines, generally require pruning to 1 or 2 leaders that need to be trellised
• Fertile, well-drained raised beds covered with plastic mulch promote early growth and better yields
• Tomatoes are high feeders and will benefit from regular fertilization with Age Old Bloom
• To prevent blossom end rot use a high calcium amendment
• Overwatering can cause fruit to crack

Direct Sowing
• Not recommended

• Sow seeds in trays 6-8 weeks before anticipated transplant date; up-pot into 3-4 inch pots when the first set of true leaves appears
• Strong light and cooler temperatures (60-70°F) prevent plants from getting leggy
• Fertilize with Age Old Grow every 10-14 days
• When transplanting work in compost, 1/2 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer, and handful of bone meal
• Determinates can be spaced 18-24 inches apart, indeterminates 24-36 inches apart
• Tomatoes can be buried up to the top 2 sets of leaves
• Use Kozy-Coats or Victorian Bell Cloches to protect young plants

Insects & Diseases
Common insects: Flea beetles and tomato hornworms
Insect control: Pyrethrin or row cover for flea beetles, and Monterey B.t. for tomato hornworms
Common diseases: Early and late blight
Disease prevention: A strict 3-4 year rotation, remove vines at the end of the year, fungicide
