Blue Marzano Tomato Solanum lycopersicum

This unusual tomato is not an heirloom, rather a new twist to the classic Italian red paste tomato called San Marzano.  Not true blue, the color is more akin to eggplant purple, and the flesh ripens maroon-red while the skin turns deep brown.  The dark skin retards ripening in the fall once the weather turns cool, so this variety should be planted early as a mid-season crop.  It makes a tasty addition to summer salads.  The fruit is about 2 ½  inches long tapering to a point.  The vines are short, no more than 3 feet long, thus this variety can be grown in tubs or containers. Minimum 20 seeds $4.50
