About Santa Clara Canner

Originating in Italy, this tomato dates back to 1910. Became very popular in the US for use in the canning industry in California. In 1923, Morse and Co. produced a smoother and earlier Santa Clara Canner strain. because of it’s uniformity in size (8-10 oz.) and it’s very rich, complex flavor. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces a great amount of red-orange fruit that is juicy, meaty and flavorful. This variety is just as suitable for eating off the vine as it is for salads, cooking and canning.
