The rich lands of San Marzano sul Sarno in the Campania region, near Naples is the home of the San Marzano tomato. Don’t be fooled by fake imitators that use the name. True San Marzano tomatoes have the D.O.P. Certification which assure that it is in fact this special breed of tomatoes which grow on the very special volcanic soil near mount Vesuvius. True San Marzano are have a more intense flavor, with more sweetness and less acidity then it’s cousin the Roma tomato. Buon Appetito!
