That the San Marzano tomato is different from – and superior to – other plum tomatoes is easy to establish. You simply have to taste it. How it got that way is a much more complicated matter.::According to Linneaus’ classification, the tomato belongs to the Solanaceae (nightshade) family which includes potatoes, peppers and other less benign plants. Because it begins as a plant ovary it is botanically a fruit, though the United States Supreme Court decreed in 1893 that it is a vegetable, and lawyers ought to know. The San Marzano has two locules or seed pockets as opposed to 5 to 7 in round tomatoes. But how did that come to be?:”It, (the plum shape) might have arisen as a mutation,” said tomato genetist Charles Rick of the University of California. “The genetic difference between it and the round type is only one or two genes. It apparently wasn’t in any of the original varieties that were brought into the Mediterranean,” he added, “but the fact that it is pretty widely spread through the Mayan area sugests that it is a very old type of variant.”:In Italy farmers traditionally selected the best tomato fruits, then picked and dried their seeds. So a primitive sort of selection resulted in a series of hybrids. Savino remembers being told that at the beginning of the 19th century when farmers found a particularly beautiful or unusual plant they set aside the seeds. “Bit by bit the shapes changed until we got the present San Marzano shape.”:(Visit hirts.com for complete description)
What are we talking about, Sucker Control? Do you have trees in your yard that put out a bunch of suckers at the base every spring? You prune them or break them off and two weeks later they are right back. This is what we are talking about. What about those coming up from tree roots that are close to the surface in your lawn? This is what we are talking about. Trees that are a real problem include olives, redwoods, aspens, crabapple, pomegranate, sycamores and many others. ::Now, there is an answer so you are not out constantly fighting suckers all spring and summer. Spray them with Sucker Stopper RTU.::Sucker Stopper RTU is a ready to use formulation in a 22 oz. spray bottle. When you see the suckers start to appear in the spring, just give them a shot before they are 6″ long. If you let them get larger than 6,” prune them off and then apply Sucker Stopper RTU. The same for those sprouts or suckers that appear from tree roots in your lawn. That is all there is to it and it should last for about three months.
