One of the oldest heirlooms dating back to the 1700's and appearing in many of the earliest seed catalogs. Since Colonial times, Americans have enjoyed these cute, red, pear-shaped tomatoes that are 1 - 2 in. long and typically weigh 1/2 to 1 oz. The big, prolific, sprawling plant produces fruits with wonderfully sweet and juicy flesh all summer in clusters of 6-9 fruits. Superb tangy flavor for salads and vegetable platters or roasted in the oven. Serve alongside Yellow Pear Heirloom Tomato to make a very attractive dish. Indeterminate. Productive vines need to be staked. Matures 70 days from transplant. Packet contains at least 30 seeds.
