Pachino Tomatoes
« on: December 11, 2013, 06:23:41 PM »
Anyone ever tried to make a sauce with Pachino Tomatoes?  I've heard that these are the most popular from the locals in Italy.  If so, is there any way of getting them in the US?

I'm always on the lookout for new tomatoes to try but I've never seen or heard of these. Do you have a picture of a can or a link to the company that cans them?

I'm pretty sure that Pachino tomatoes refers to a region in Italy where they are grown - kind of like San Marzano. Unlike SM's it not also a variety but rather there are several varieties that can be grown and sold as Pachino.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

TX-- that's what it seems like, from what I've read.  An area in Sicily.  But I think they tend to refer more to the cherry sized variety than another.

DM-- I haven't heard of a canned variety yet.  I stumbled on some place that offered them jarred, but I've lost the link.  But here's a link to a little more information on them: http://www.naturalmenteitaliano.it/flex/FixedPages/IT/Prodotto.php/L/EN/P/4169
