The extremely fertile terrotory, an horticultural vocation which can be found around Vesuvius, is the area where San Marzano tomato D.O.P. are produced.
An extremely delicate tomato wicht maintains a long lasting taste even after preservation and is to be handled with care. The San Marzano tomato is cultivated similar to vinws and is harvested over increasing periods, 3 to 4 times or even more, only if it is well ripened from the beginning of August to the end of September. In the kitchen, cook for 10 minutes, then add salt and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
