    There are a few hybrid San Marzanos, but they have something added to the name such as SM Lungo or SM Follia If it is just San Marzano it is not a hybrid.

    There is even a mini SM that's an f1 but it is actually named Ravello
    RAVELLO F1 SEEDS (TOMATO)

    A couple of years ago I had a "debate" with T&M where they had different information on the website to the packet of seeds. (Rosella in this case). They changed their website which had mistakenly identified it as F1 when the packet said it wasn't F1.

    I hope that somebody isn't using San Marzano for something else, its a well established name.
    I've just checked my packet from Kings, and F1 is not mentioned.

    I'm not sure where I saw it now, but I remember being surprised when I saw it listed as F1, could have just been a google.

    But obviously I was momentarily bewildered when writing that post.

    No pressure, register your interest - and the tomatoes you fancy saving if you know what you are going to grow

    #things don't often go to plan while growing so you can change your mind on what varieties you are saving. Remember there's loads of seeds in a cherry Tom, so you only have to save one or two but you do have to label them!
