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!

Review:

I grew these in 2016 from seeds I got from Baker Creek in December, 2015. I saved seeds and am growing a plant from those, this year (2017). Here are my experiences: In 2016, the plant was very small, and was the earliest variety to set fruit of about 100 tomato varieties (I transplanted in May and had brown fruit at the end of June or so). Taste was good. The fruits were very small (cherry-sized). I got about 10 to 15 fruits, and they were all early. They were brown, but I probably ate them all before they got too ripe. The taste was kind of like Paul Robeson, but much milder. The plant got smothered by other tomatoes, eventually, but it didn't seem to be growing much. In 2017, The plant grew much larger and grew lots of fruit (I think it appreciated the acclimatization). While it wasn't my earliest variety of ~100 it was still one of the first few to change its final color. The fruits tasted different, and more potent. I let some fully ripen, and they tasted amazing, and super sweet!

Review:

My family loved it! We put it on our salads and ate it fresh. Easy to grow despite some difficulties because of the heat in the Philippines, prolific and absolutely delicious! Great variety especially when you're new at gardening. Tolerates heat, (around 90-100 degrees) if watered well.

Review:

These have to be a really winner when it comes to Cherry tomatoes, I only really got to appreciate them since I didn't plant any last year. I had planted different cherry tomatoes, only a few by seed, however, compared to all the others, this one had raised the flavour and expectation bar for all cherry tomatoes I plant from here on! They were firm, sweet and very good. I have found other cherry tomatoes have been lacking the in flavour and texture compared to these beauties. I even managed to save a few for seed and have planted them for this years garden! HIGHLY recommended!

Review:

Wow! This little tomato saved my summer. Last summer, every single tomato plant i had seemed to have a different bacterial infection, it was so disappointing. But not these guys, they stayed healthy and only started to fall ill from their neighbors very late, past season. They were so prolific, the birds and squirrels could steal them and i would still have plenty left every day. The plant was huge, over 6 feet tall by the time it was done, more like a tree. I did not prune any suckers, just let this tomato do its thing, and it went wild. Taste similar to your darker tomato, a bit savory, sometimes they were downright umami like a cherokee or robeson, but usually a little more tart. Very pretty, will grow every year.

Review:

Fantastic producers of awesome pear tomatoes that my family loves to snack on all the time. They also hold well on the counter for several days before getting wrinkly. I planted three and they turned into giant bushes. No kidding. If you don't prune them, be prepare to get lost inside the bush finding tomatoes. I learned my lesson halfway through the season and started pruning two of the three plants. The other one was in the kid's garden and I let it go wild, and boy did it go wild! Took over their entire garden pretty much, sprawled out everywhere and kept producing. The two plants I did prune still put out tons of tomatoes. Stunningly beautiful, long clusters of tiny pear tomatoes. No blossom end rot, no disease. Great producer!!! I plan on planting it every year because what's a garden without a plant to snack from as you work? Also, this plant will keep producing through fall, at least for me where I live.
