70 days. Expect huge crops of “black,” pear-shaped tomatoes over a very long season. Chocolate Pear has the rich tomato flavor that has made heirlooms so popular! A great variety for CSAs and market growers. Light red in color, overlaid with swirls of varying hues of green or brown. Very unusual and decidedly one of the best!

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? Unusual flavor; thick skin

Review:

Great, unusual taste. Huge vine, very productive all season. Did well despite hot/dry desert climate. Stays well on vine. No cracking. Did not attract June bugs.

Beautiful! Tasted wonderful, not to sweet but best pear shaped heirloom I've tried. Mealy when hot, but better in beginning and end of season. Growing again this year!

Review:

These were the first tomatoes, and the last tomatoes. They were very prolific. On hot July days, they were perfect off the vine as we worked in the garden. They are the sweetest tomato I have ever tasted. We tried these after having great luck with yellow pears which were our favorites the season before. We grew these two side by side, but when we needed a quenching snack while pulling weeds, we always chose the chocolate over the yellow. And the yellow are excellent! I love these chocolate pears.

Review:

I'll be growing this again next year. Perfect balance of acid and sweetness, tastes like a real tomato. Never mealy. Keeps well on and off the plant. It did get some late blight in the middle of the season but kept on growing and producing.

What are the pros? Easy, Great flavor, keeps well

What are the cons? none

Review:

These plants set massive amounts of 1 to 1 1/2 inch long pear shaped fruit. Shoulders stay green even when ripe. Ripeness should be judged by firmness with this variety, when they are ready they will soften. Great in salads or as a snack. Also makes an amazing bruschetta or fresh salsa. Excellent dried. The green fruits make good pickles and green tomato jam or chutney. Delightful variety that has earned its place on my yearly to grow list.
