Tomato Yellow Pear is named for its colour and shape, this beautiful, bite-sized tasty heirloom is prized for snacking, salads, and as a complement to any dish or in preserves. Rich in vitamins, as it is flavourful, growth is fairly tall.

  • Light: Full sun
  • Fruit size: 1 to 2 inches
  • Matures: 78 days from transplanting
  • Plant spacing: 36 inches apart
  • Plant size: 6 to 12 feet tall
  • Plant type: Indeterminate

Heirloom. Long, indeterminate vines produce a seemingly endless supply of mild flavoured, pear-shaped tomatoes all summer. The tiny tomatoes are borne in clusters. This is one of the prettiest tomatoes in the garden. It's beautiful in a salad. Bears dependably through summer weather. Vines can grow 8 feet or longer, so give them a tall support or place to ramble.

  • Suitable for protected and outdoor growing.
  • Open pollinated, heritage (heirloom) variety.
  • For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to March.
  • For outdoor cultivation: sow from March to May.

Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).

When growing in a heated glasshouse tomato plants may be transplanted at the end of May or when the first flowers are showing, if earlier. Allow 3 plants per growbag, or one per 25cm (10") pot, or plant tomatoes directly into the greenhouse soil.

When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting tomatoes. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting out from early June when tomato plants are 20cm (8") tall. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Drive a (5') cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.

Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
