Uncovering the Elegance

Zia Rosa D.O.P. San Marzano Tomatoes are no ordinary tomatoes; they are the epitome of elegance in Italian culinary craftsmanship. Grown in the Sarnese-Nocerino district in Campania, Italy, near Naples, these tomatoes bear the prestigious DOP label, signifying their Protected Designation of Origin. The meticulous cultivation in this specific region ensures a flavour profile that stands unrivalled.

Thicker Walls, Fewer Seeds, Lower Acidity

What sets these tomatoes apart is their unique characteristics – longer and thinner than traditional plum tomatoes, with a more pointed tip and a thicker flesh. Zia Rosa boasts a mild acidity, making them sweeter and jammier compared to their counterparts. The minimal seeds and thicker walls make them the preferred choice for crafting authentic Neapolitan pizzas and sumptuous tomato sauces.

The San Marzano Story

Originating from the small town of San Marzano sul Sarno, near Naples, these tomatoes have a rich history dating back to 1770. Gifted from the Viceroyalty of Peru to the Kingdom of Naples, the seeds found a home in the fertile volcanic soil, creating a tomato that would become the cornerstone of Italian cuisine.

The DOP Difference

Real San Marzano tomatoes, including those offered by PetitsTré, carry the DOP emblem, ensuring they are grown, processed, and canned with utmost precision. This Protected Designation of Origin sets them apart from imitations, guaranteeing an unparalleled taste that captures the essence of southern Italy.

Taste the Authenticity

While some may question the difference, tasting an authentic San Marzano will make you a believer. Whether crafting an all-day simmered red sauce or the perfect pizza sauce, the high-quality tomatoes from Zia Rosa shine through, making every dish a culinary masterpiece.
