Seed Swaps

Tomato 'Yellow Pear'    

Clusters of pear-shaped, yellow fruits with mild, delicious flavor are attractive and tasty whole for salads and appetizers. Fine preserved or pickled. Indeterminate. Ready to pick about 70-75 days after plants are set outside.

Start indoors in a warm, sunny area about 6-8 weeks before outdoor planting time. Sow seed 1/4" deep in seed-starting formula. Keep moist. Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days at 70-80 degrees farenheit. Transplant to individual containers when seedlings have at least 2 pairs of leaves. Before transfer to garden, accustom seedlings to outdoor conditions by moving to a sheltered place outside for a week.

Set plants 1 1/2-2 1/2’ apart if staked or caged in a sunny area with average soil in spring after all danger of frost. Fertilize when first fruits form to increase yield.
