Austin’s Red Pear Tomato

$4.99

Austin’s Red Pear Tomato is an heirloom indeterminate variety that will produce loads of crisp, red, pear-shaped cherry tomatoes throughout the growing season. The large 2″ fruits make a great garden snack for their excellent flavor and crispy, juicy crunch and would be a great addition to salads. The plants tend to be heavily vining and as a result, we recommend using solid support like trellising. The Austin’s Red Pear Tomato makes a great option for raised beds and containers as well. Solanum lycopersicum. Virus Tested. 75 Days to Maturity.

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date. If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
