The premium strain tomato is an heirloom variety, a bite size, old-time favorite.

This historic mini-tomato can trace its lineage back to the 1700s in Europe. During the 1800s, this sweet, small, pear-shaped tomato came to both England and the United States. It traveled west with the pioneers and north with the fur trade.

This gardener’s favorite will present you with the first clusters of pleasant, mild-flavored, 2 to 3 inch charming sunny yellow mini pear-shaped fruits in about 73 to 80 days and then will continue with more throughout the season.

Like other yellow tomatoes, the yellow pear tomato has beta-carotene that can help neutralize free radicals that may damage people’s cells. In addition, yellow pear tomatoes have vitamin C, niacin, folate and potassium to help regulate blood pressure, nerve function and muscle control.

All tomatoes need sun and well-drained, nutrient-rich soil. Amend soil with compost or other organic matter before planting tomatoes. Plant deeply, burying two-thirds of the stem, about 36 inches apart.

Pinch off lower leaves and set the plant in the ground at an angle so that the stem is horizontal underground but upright the above ground.

The yellow pear is an indeterminate type tomato. Although its fruit is small, its vines are large and hardy. They will grow vigorously to about 10 to 12 feet tall. Consider using tall sturdy cages or some form of support.
