Yellow Pear Tomato is a very old tomato that dates to at least the early 1600's. The indeterminate vine continues producing clusters of beautiful, 1-2 inch, pear-shaped, lemon to golden yellow fruits throughout the season. Like the red and yellow cherry and plum tomatoes, this variety was used by early Americans more for preserving and pickling. Yellow pear tomatoes are very popular today for salads as well.
Native Distribution: Western South America
Sow yellow pear tomato seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost date, transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Yellow pear tomato plants require support and frequent fertilization. Approximately 35-40 Yellow Pear Tomato seeds per packet.
