Black Pear Tomato Seeds (80 days)
 

  Sustainably Grown/Approx. 25 seeds per pkg.

Indeterminate Vines

Mahogany colored tomatoes that bear the resemblance to pears. 

Black Pear tomatoes have a deep, rich, complex, sweet taste that are perfect for slicing or salads.  HA...that is if you can get them to the kitchen without eating them! 

Three to 8 inches in diameter and weigh about 6-12 ounces. 

Our strain of Black Pear tends to run bigger than most I've seen.  We have had some fruits as big as a pound. 

A Russian heirloom of Siberian origin. 

California Grown Heirloom Seed
Being of Russian origin you might have guessed Black Pear is very tolerant of cool nights and still produces well.  It was one of the first ten tomatoes to bear fruit in our California trial gardens.  Perfect addition to any Bay Area garden.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Tomatoes:

Most gardeners want to get the most out of these delicious heirloom tomatoes and therefore give them a head start on the growing season.  Start these vegetable seeds indoors in sterile potting mix being sure to keep the temperature above 70 degrees.  Some people prefer to use a grow pad but the top of the fridge has been known to be quite effective as well. 

Once the first true leaves appear on your tomato seedlings, transplant into 4" pots until you have completely hardened them off in the garden.  Hardening is a process of exposing the plants more and more to outside temperature until they are hardy enough to tollerat a complete outdoor move.  Generally speaking, by early summer heirloom tomatoes should be transplated into the garden.

Most heirloom varieties are quite productive and will greatly benefit from sturdy supports.  It may also be advisable to add blood and bone to the worked soil to help ensure healthy productive heirloom tomatoes.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Tomato Seeds:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
