La Valle DOP San Marzano Peeled Tomatoes are excellent Italian-Neapolitan tomatoes that are marvellous for sauces, and of course on Neapolitan pizza. These tomatoes have a sweet and fresh taste. The warm terrain of the slopes of The Vesuvius is a determining factor for the bio-diversity of the San Marzano tomato which are grown in a locality between the Agri Sarno region beneath the Vesuvius volcano in the Provinces of Salerno, Naples and Avellino The true San Marzano has a long shape and does not break into pieces, unlike other imitators it is only packed in its own natural juices . The taste is unmistakeable and resembles the freshness of its terrane and is like no other tomato.
Founded in June 1999, after fter the European Union officially recognised the productÕs Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), The Consortium of the San Marzano Tomato aims are the protection and the increase in value of the San Marzano Tomato PDO.
