All San Marzano tomatoes are best grown as cordon type tomatoes. When growing them outdoors we would recommend limiting them to 3 or at the most 4 trusses depending on how much sun you get in your area of the UK.

San Marzano are without doubt the best tomatoes for sauces, their combination of flavour, meaty texture and very small amount of seeds makes them stand out above all the other varieties. As you can see from the picture below, these tomatoes do vary in size and texture.

You may think with all that going for them that they won't do well outdoors in the UK but the opposite is true, they do very well. We recommend the variety San Marzano Redorta because it does better than other similar types in the UK.

This is a vigorous grower and will most definitely need support. Limit the plant to 3 or 4 trusses when grown outside and remove foliage which cover any of them to give maximum exposure to the sunshine.
