San Marzano Lampadina Tomato (82 days, Heirloom)

2

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.
