Yellow Pear Tomato is an opened pollinated, indeterminate tomato variety that originated from Europe around the 18th century. It produces vigorous vines that can reach 1.5-1.8 m (5-6’) tall. Staking, pruning and tying will be required to keep this high yielding plant maintained. Yellow Pear produces heavy yields of 3-4 cm (1½”) long yellow, pear-shaped fruit that have a mild flavor, and are great for fresh eating or for making tomato preserves. Very productive plants are easy to grow. 80 days.
Open pollinated-untreated seeds. Harvest fruit when they are the desired size, color and firmness. In general, perfectly ripe tomatoes show deep color but still feel firm when gently squeezed. Tomatoes do continue to ripen after being picked. Gently grab and twist until the tomato pulls free from the stem, or use a pair of clippers. Cut stems close to fruits. Always store picked tomatoes at room temperature indoors, or in a shady place outside. Never refrigerate tomatoes, because temperatures below 12.8° C (55° F) cause flavor compounds to break down.
