I think San Marzano is variety of Italian plum tomato sold by many packers. Muir Glen is a packing company who may also sell san Marzanos. So it may be their way of packing--or it could be just that batch.
And I totally agree with the poster that said her heirlooms will blow everything else out of the water!! BUT we can't have summer tomatoes all year long, unfortunately. ;o)

For a tomato to be classified as a San Marzano tomato, it has to be from the San Marzano region in Italy. It's not simply just a variety of plum tomato.
