ITALISSIMA TOMATOES

Tomatoes from Italissima Foods are imported and bring the true taste of Italy!

Tomatoes and tomato products are prominent ingredients in many Italian and Mediterranean dishes. Italissima brand tomatoes come in many varieties and sizes from traditional peeled tomatoes to organic tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, and D.O.P. San Marzano tomatoes.  Compared to the Roma tomato, San Marzano tomatoes are thinner and more pointed. The flesh is much thicker with fewer seeds, and the taste is stronger, sweeter and less acidic. Many people describe the taste as bittersweet.

The San Marzano vines are indeterminate and have a somewhat longer season than other paste tomato varieties, making them particularly suitable for warmer climates. As is typical of heirloom plants, San Marzano is an open-pollinated variety that breeds true from generation to generation, making seed saving practical for the home gardener or farmer.

Roma (Paste) Tomatoes are dense Italian plum tomatoes like San Marzano, with sweet, firm flesh, high pectin content, not much juice, and few seeds…the perfect sauce tomato, since it thickens naturally and needs less cooking time to evaporate off excess moisture.  Their low moisture content gives them extended fresh storage time, and they’re great for drying or topping pizzas.
