Italy's most famous tomato, San Marzanos are grown in the Campania region of Italy. These whole peeled tomatoes are packed in tomato puree, salt, and basil bringing the distinct flavors of homemade Italian cooking to your next pasta or pizza dish.
San Marzano Tomatoes are grown in the soils of the Campania region of Italy. The soil in this area is among the best in the entire country. The volcanic ash from nearby Mount Vesuvius, combined with the rich earth of the Apennine hills, has created a fertile terrain with very special physical and chemical qualities. The San Marzano area possesses an exclusive climate, and the beneficial influences of the pristine Mediterranean sea breeze, in collaboration with the sun, foster the growth of the San Marzano Tomato to germinate like a red ruby from the land. The San Marzano Tomato exhibits unique characteristics such as “tutta polpa” (meatier pulp), a full-bodied tomato, elongated in shape, unequaled sweet taste, almost no seeds, and the only species of tomato in the world with two chambers.
DOP mark (or Protected Designation of Origin [PDO] in English) is to protect the reputation of the regional foods and eliminate the unfair competition and misleading of consumers by non-genuine products, which may be of inferior quality or of a different flavor.
