San Marzano Tomatoes D.O.P.* are prized worldwide for their unique flavour. They are produced in a small region around Mount Vesuvius near Naples, which is considered to be one of the best tomato growing regions due to its sun drenched volcanic soil. Thinner and more pointed than Roma tomatoes, San Marzano tomatoes are prized by chefs for their stronger, sweeter flavour, firm pulp, uniform red colour, low seed count and easily removable skin. Harvested by hand, they are regarded as the best paste tomatoes and ideal for those following a Mediterranean diet. For a delicious lunchtime snack, heat and serve on toasted ciabatta bread drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Or conjure up the perfect mouth-watering pizza or pasta sauce base.
