Product Description

Grafted Vegetables
Commercial cultivation of grafted vegetable plants began in Korea and Japan at the end of the 1920s. Today, produce growers worldwide are adopting the use of grafted tomato stock, particularly in Asia, Europe, New Zealand and Australia.

Grafted vegetables are created when the top part of one plant (the scion) is attached to the root system of a separate plant (the rootstock). The rootstock contributes vigor and disease resistance while the scion is chosen for fruit flavor or quality.

San Marzano
Indeterminate - 70 days - Large, pear-shaped fruit are an average 5 inches long. Fruit is high in pectin, giving sauce and paste natural thickness.
San Marzano tomatoes, a variety of plum tomatoes, are considered by many chefs to be the best sauce tomatoes in the world. The story goes that the first seed of the San Marzano tomato came to Campania in 1770, as a gift from the Kingdom of Peru to the Kingdom of Naples, and that it was planted in the area that corresponds to the present commune of San Marzano. Compared to the Roma tomatoes with which most people are familiar, Marzano tomatoes are thinner and pointier in shape. The flesh is much thicker with fewer seeds, and the taste is much stronger, more sweet and less acidic. Many people describe the taste as bittersweet, like high-quality chocolate. Because of their high quality and origins near Naples, San Marzano tomatoes have been designated as the only tomatoes that can be used for Vera Pizza Napoletana (True Neapolitan Pizza).

Hirt Nursery shipped this transplant-sized tomato to my Maryland address on March 7--still winter here and four days after the big snow storm that hit on the East Coast. Despite the stupidity of shipping a warm-weather plant in winter, and the fact that the description of the plant on Amazon said that the purchase was a "Pre-Order," the nursery's only explanation was that Amazon required that they ship within two days after an order is placed. And despite the fact that it will be at least six weeks before a tomato can be safely planted in a Maryland garden, Hirt refuses to provide satisfaction, which I would define as a promise to reship a transplant-sized plant at an appropriate shipping date in late April or to refund my money.
