This heirloom tomato dates back to the late 1800's and is known for its small, pear-shaped fruits with a mild, sweet flavor. The vines are indeterminate and the plants are disease resistant and very productive. Plus, they're absolutely gorgeous! The yellow fruits are a real stand-out in salads or pickled. So if you're looking for something new to try this growing season, go for the Yellow Pear tomato!

Start seed indoors 5-7 weeks before last frost. Provide plants with plenty of light to avoid tall, spindly tomato transplants. A sunny south-facing window or grow lights will be sufficient. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. A few weeks before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring; usually about 2 weeks after the your average last frost date. Set transplants in the ground and cover stem so that only 2-3 sets true leaves are exposed, resulting in a stronger root system.
