Q.San Marzano Tomatoes

Zone Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada | Anonymous added on August 7, 2021 | Answered

Hi, I’m growing San Marzano tomatoes (from garden nursery plants) for the first time. The plants are healthy and loaded with large fruit that is just starting to ripen. I picked the first one a few days ago and when I cut it open it was kind of hollow and dry inside. I picked a green one and it was the same – not much meat to it. Is this how they are supposed to be? Thanks.
