Description

Cherry Tomato - Yellow Pear - Lycopersicon esculentum

Tender Annual Heirloom. Indeterminate. A home garden favorite since the early 19th century, the pear-shaped golden fruits weigh in at about 1 ounce. Known for their sweetness, kids love to pick these cherry tomatoes straight off the vines. Use in salads if any tomatoes make it back to the house.

Did You Know? You can trellis Yellow Pear for a colorful, edible landscape plant.

Soil & Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet. Thin skinned cherry tomatoes may split if left too long on the vines.

Planting Depth: 1/4"
Germination: 6-12 Days
Height At Maturity: 6’-12’
Days to Maturity: 70-78 Days
