Best Canned San Marzano Tomato
« on: July 28, 2007, 05:24:05 PM »
Hey does anyone know of any great San Marzano DOP tomato brands?
All the ones i have been trying lately  are not looking very good they seam very small
and not very colorful. Here are some brands that i have tried.

LA Valle DOP
Cento    DOP
LA FEDE DOP
GorDona DOP

Maybe its a bad season because I'm telling you the tomato's I've been getting are not very good with the exception of Lafede which are small but they have good color and are very sweet.

Try the regular Cento, not the DOP... I think they are better, but might've just been a good can / bad can experience.  There are some other good ones but I dunno really about just DOP ones... I've never really found a good one myself to be honest.  I'll try the Lafede if I can find them.

I have tried the regular Cento they have good size but lack color and sweetness plus they tend to be a little watery in my opinion, i think the regular LaValle brand is a better product. But overall Cento are better then a lot of other Italian tomatoes La Saquista, Vantia Tuto Russo etc. I think they are up there.

Cool.  What is your favorite so far then?  The Lafede's?

I would have to say Lafede, But i just don't understand why the DOPs are smaller then the regular tomato plums. When ever i open up a can of the DOPs they are like half the size as a regular can of plums. I don't think I'm alone in my assumption.
