San Marzano Lampadina Tomato (82 days, Heirloom)

Indeterminate. San Marzano has always been my favorite paste tomato despite its lack of disease resistance and this strain, imported from Italy, is particularly good. A vigorous vine carries large, lobed fruits, almost like elongated bell peppers. This strain has a pleasant and mild tomato flavor which we really like, with very low water content. Fruit has thick flesh and open seed cavities. Yields are very high. 35 seeds.

PLANTING:

Indoors- 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

Harvest- When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

A fine sauce tomato for my finicky tastes

I don't really like "wet" tomatoes so much, which seems to cover most of the traditional 'slicers' in the tomato family. Thus I generally grow mostly 'sauce' varieties, and Lampadina ("which means "light bulbs" in Italian) is a very reliable cropper, and it is surely the "driest" tom I have encountered --- it has an actual air-space inside each fruit instead of the usual wet muck. Other San Marzano strains are equally productive, but wetter. Lampadina definitely has a place in my veg garden.
