Craving Peak Tomato Flavor? Melissa's New Heavenly Villagio Marzano® Delivers Year-Round

Los Angeles, CA (June 2024)– Melissa’s Produce, a leading distributor of specialty fruits and vegetables, brings the popular Heavenly Villagio Marzano® tomato to its lineup of specialty tomatoes. A plum variety, Heavenly Villagio Marzano® boasts a firm texture, concentrated flavor, and minimal seeds and juice—its sweetness and density rival Italy’s classic San Marzano variety, prized by chefs for its exceptional taste and cooking applications.

“The Heavenly Villagio Marzano® has dense pulp that stays intact when roasted, grilled or sautéed,” says Robert Schueller, Melissa’s Director of Public Relations. “Today’s sophisticated home cooks love it for the same reason that chefs do—it’s all about texture. You get that classic sun-kissed tomato flavor without ample juices that can water down a dish. It’s ideal for sauces, soups and salsas—and when it comes to snacking, it gets top marks for flavor without the mess.”

Fluctuating tomato supply can be challenging for retail partners and customers. The company notes that this tomato is a solution. It’s grown using advanced, ultra-precise greenhouse technology that maximizes plant health and yield. This translates to outstanding quality and remarkable shelf-life. “It’s not only an excellent tomato,” notes Schueller. “It’s an excellent tomato that Melissa’s offers 365 days a year."

Melissa’s Heavenly Villagio Marzano® tomatoes are packaged in convenient, easy-to-merchandise 10-ounce totes with Melissa’s label. To learn more about this exciting new offering and to discuss how it can benefit your business, please contact Melissa’s sales team today at sales@melissas.com.
