Small, golden pear-shaped fruit have good mild sweet flavor that is better than the common Yellow Pear. Big plants produce heavy yields late into the year.

Geographical Origin

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.

    Best Pear Tomato

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    This is by far the best pear tomato I’ve ever had. I’ve never seen so many flowers on one plant, and it’s fairly aggressive. I grow my tomatoes in seven foot concrete wire cages. It has grown out the top, and no end in sight for the fruit. Wonderful tomato, Thank You, Keep up your great work!

    Not what we hoped

    Where did you grow this variety? Northeastern US

    These didn’t taste as we hoped. They were really slow to come on, though when they did they kept coming late into the season. But the flavor was not particularly enjoyable. We did have an unusually dry season.
