Got mine from MMMM, too. I will try to remember to take a picture when I get fruit. I was expecting a plum type. I grew regular San Marzano 2 years ago. I can’t remember if I started from seed or not. But, it was incredibly prolific. It wasn’t very tall, but very bushy and I kept having to put more supports around it every time it rained. Sauce was very good.
