RE: Supper

I am growing "Super San Marzano" this year, along with "Classica", "Big
Mama", and "Viva Italia". I used to grow Roma but for two years in a row the
plants all died from disease so I quit. I'm always looking for different
paste types since I put up a lot of tomato products during the summer. I'm
pretty happy with both Classica and Big Mama, they produce well and taste
good; Super San Marzano and Viva Italia produce well but just aren't as
tomatoey to me. And it's just occurred to me while writing this that I
always try to grow one new variety each year and I don't have one this time.
Better hit the seed cabinet and check out what I've got.

  I have started 'San Marzano', a pear tomato that is meant for 
sauce/canning. Have never tried it, but I wanted something different 
(and hopefully tastier than the Roma plants I can buy locally. Am also 
trying (with trepidation) 'Oxheart' an heirloom. (Hoping it does not 
succumb to a dread disease....)
