78 days. Very sweet, 1 1/2" yellow, pear-shaped fruit have a mild flavor, and are great for fresh eating or for making tomato preserves. Very productive plants are easy to grow. One of the first tomatoes I grew as a child.

Tastes great not prolific
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 1.5
 

What are the pros? Tastes great

What are the cons? not prolific, ripens slowly

Review:

A long time ago when I grew these in Florida, they were easy to grow and prolific - maybe a different seed stock? So starting up a new garden in Raleigh NC, I was happy to find these seeds online. I have not had much luck with them. Last year I tried container gardening - and none of the tomatoes I choose (incl these) did well. This year, I planted them in ground with much compost and rich gardening soil added to my clay soil as my raised garden would hold. The plants themselves do great. Lots of nice green vines and leaves, pretty to look at, but very few tomatoes and it takes them a long time to ripen. Fortunately, my super sweet 100 plant puts out more cherry tomatoes than we can consume.

High yields great taste
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Mild sweet taste, nice yields

What are the cons? none

Review:

This tomato is mild and sweet. If you don't like sour tomatoes, grow this one, It gives moderately high yields and is disease resistant. All the tomatoes in my garden got Powdery Mildew, including this variety, but it's taking a lot longer for the disease to kill these. I planted in late February, and now, in the beginning of July, the plant is 7 feet tall.

Review:

This tomato is still around after so many years because they are dependable croppers of mild fruits that even a 6 year-old can cultivate from seed to pluck and eat. The first tomatoes I ever grew when I was small and I remember the height of the plants growing in Tulare, CA as being so tall the adults used very long redwood stakes to contain them and a step-ladder to keep them picked! Here in Montana they can reach 14 feet in a greenhouse and 4 or more feet wide. The fruit will taste nearly bland if over-fed and watered. I do not fertilize or grow these in rich soil, but rather place a plant here and there around the ranch where I may drag a hose. I am rewarded with TASTY and sweet fruits from a bush that can reach 6 feet tall and about 3 feet around, tied to a post. Usually I have 6 to 10 plants going a season, with other red and black varieties of pear tomato growing nearby. Just super good for snacking on or collecting by the bucket load for salads or to throw to the chickens.

Best Grape Style Tomato
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Delicious, Prolific.

What are the cons? Take a while to mature

Review:

If grown with lots of light, and in well amended soil these Yellow Pear Tomatoes are the best you will ever have. I stumbled across them at a farmer's market one year and will never go back to plain grape tomatoes. They are sweet and juicy. I was surprised to read reviews that the flavor was bad. Perhaps if they aren't watered or fertilized enough the taste might be compromised, but I've never experienced this. The plants are prolific, but they are indeterminate so be prepared to attend them with pruning and sucker pulling. We ended up making PVC cages to support them, the metal style doesn't work well for these huge plants. Be prepared to harvest a colander worth at a time. 2 plants usually give me enough for myself, and a bit to give away. Seriously, if you want a sweet and prolific grape tomato, get these!

What are the pros? easy, mild taste, pretty

What are the cons? takes over the yard

Review:

I read the recent reviews saying these don't taste good and I was surprised. Maybe they are picking too late. These are vigorous, indeterminant vines, that need a lot of space. I would start them in a tomato cage and stake them mid-season, but by fall I would still find 12 feet vines sprawling across the lawn. They will overshadow anything smaller nearby. They produce unbelievable amounts of fruit - I would collect a colander at a time. I found picking when slightly green to pale yellow was the best time. They were sweet and slightly tart without any earthy taste (which might be what some people are missing). If you let them go too long, they get soft and almost turn to liquid inside. I had very little problem with cracking unlike w other varieties. They even produced after frost, well into Oct. These make an amazing sauce! Smooth and delicious, and looks creamy. A lovely surprise.
