The Yellow Pear tomato is an extremely old variety.  The plant produces enormous quantity bright yellow, bite-sized fruit. As the name suggests, the tomatoes have a distincitve pear shape to them.  People say the flavor is deliciously tangy.

About Small-Fruited Tomatoes

These varieties are generally vigorous growing and productive. They vary in size from 1 to 1-1/2 inches in diameter and are usually suitable for pruning. Production per plant is very high, to the point that picking may become tedious. Whole clusters may sometimes be picked at one time to speed the harvest. Splitting seems to be more of a problem with cherries, though newer hybrids have attempted to lessen the problem. These types are usually described as especially sweet and tasty

Indeterminate

The vines grow indefinitely with the vine producing new shoots & blossoms even after fruit set.  Plants can grow quite tall in warmer climates with fruit production last well into the end of summer.

Growing Tips

This is an indeterminate tomato variety, so it needs to be staked or caged.  Tomatoes should be planted outside after the last average frost date.  The plants prefer well drained soil that is high in organic matter.  In order to produce good yields, the plants need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day and regular watering.  Fertilize about every six weeks with a good fertilizer (we recommend worm castings if available).

There certainly were plenty of tomatoes on tall plants (need super large containers) since the plants fell over in a good breeze. As for the the fruits themselves they had a very hard neck part and the base part was mussy to me without a good tomato taste when I decided to blanch and make the large qty into packages for the winter. I will NOT pick this variety again! Since I HAVE to eat low acid tomatoes only.

We've had our eye on these cut little tomatoes ever since we first laid eyes on them. Last year, we grew the La Roma II's, Lemon Boys and Sweet 100's. Growing the Sweet 100's made us realize how nice it is to have some sweet little cherry tomatoes in the garden.

These Yellow Pear Tomatoes were not available locally, so it was Amazon to the rescue. It's hard to believe you can ship tomato plants via USPS, but they arrived just fine. The plants are thriving and we can't wait to make our first harvest.
