Ben's Ivory Pear Tomato Seeds (86 days)

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Indeterminate.  Pear shaped cherry sized tomatoes absolutely load down this rare tomato variety.  Very sweet, almost no acid, slight tang and hints of apricot. 

I love this tomato and would have to put it on my top 20 list for taste.  Kids I think would enjoy its sweet taste as well. 


California Grown Heirloom Tomato
Ben's Ivory Pear did well for us here producing gobs of tomatoes.  It seemed to be a mid to late season tomato and bearing almost all at once.  We picked from it for about 3 weeks and it may have gone longer had we not had a freak frost.

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.
