Paolo Petrilli Organic Peeled Italian Tomatoes
Paolo Petrilli’s organic tomatoes are long, sweet, and incredibly juicy plum tomatoes from Lucera in Southern Italy. These tomatoes are the same cultivar as San Marzano tomatoes solanum lycopersicum, though are grown on an organic farm 75km to the north-east of the PDO region. Paolo Petrilli’s tomatoes are the tomato of choice for Italian chefs and some of the best Italian restaurants across the UK, such as River Café.
The tomatoes are grown in La Motticella is a very ancient settlement near Lucera in the region of Puglia, famous for its climate and tomatoes. The long San Marzano-style tomatoes are preserved using traditional, organic methods. The tomatoes are hand-picked, peeled and packed into jars with a few basil leaves all on Paolo Petrilli’s land.
These peeled tomatoes make an outstanding tomato sauce and a delectable paste for spreading on pizza dough.
