70 days. Expect huge crops of “black,” pearshaped 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 got a boo-boo tomato. Supposed to be Green Zebra. Purple-red pear shaped with greenish tops not exactly Zebras! So thankful for the mistake! Discovered it was Chocolate Pear! Grew it, and three other tomatoes in fabric pots on my sunny deck. Super wet spring was followed by blistering July. Made me a slave to 4-5 moderate daily waterings -- no option! Heavily mulched top of pot. Staked strongly & pinched side shoots. Grew very well vertically! Due to heat & dryness, loads of fruit delayed maturing until last week of July. Developed thick skins in defense, but only 1 fruit dropped early and 1 developed blossom end rot due to trying to balance waterings. Thick flesh, super juicy, sweet! Perfect! It's August 2 & if it weren't for the Chocolate Pear, I'd be buying someone else's tomatoes! All others barely coming out of delayed maturation, and I lost many Lemon Boy and Green Zebras due to blossom end rot. I WILL be growing Chocolate Pears again! BEST GOOF EVER!

Best tasting tomato

What are the pros? Fantastic flavor, prolific

What are the cons? Takes a while to get going

Review:

I grow mostly heirlooms, and these ended up in my garden one year because they were mislabeled. What a great mistake! They are finally ripening now in mid-August. They remind me a bit of a cross between Brandywine and Black Krim. Complex and sweet. There are never enough to preserve; they taste too good straight off the vine.

What are the pros? prolific

What are the cons? Hard to ripen on vine

Review:

These tomatoes were easy to start indoors. The plant seemed to take a bit longer to get a growth spurt after transplant...but when it did, it really did. The trouble I have had is they fall off the vine SO easily. Hard rain leaves so many on the ground. Even if I brush against it while getting to other plants, multiple fruit fall off. Happens with green as week as fruit that is in various ripening stages. Maybe other people have better luck. Never grown a tomato that falls off so easily...good thing it is so prolific. Good flavor even when ripening finishes off the vine.

What are the pros? Productive, Sweet, Flavorful

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've never had any problem sprouting these. They grow into a giant bush so make sure they are spaced at least a 3ft apart. They are also prolific so only a few plants are what you will need to have an abundant harvest with these. They are sweet to pick right off and eat while you are fussing around in the garden and I dry the rest of them and make into a powder to flavor sauces. I will always have these growing in the garden.

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!
