Yellow Pear tomatoes are easy to grow, low-acid, sweet bites of sunshine. About the size of cherry tomatoes, they are usually used fresh anywhere a splash of color is welcome.
To start indoors, begin 6 weeks before your average last frost date. Sow seeds in pairs, 1/8 inch deep and 3/4 inch apart in seed starting mix. Cover lightly, and press gently for seed-to-soil contact. Keep moist and warm (75°F).
When plants emerge within 10 days, ensure they receive 12-18 hours of bright light per day. Fluorescent lamps raised just above the top leaves will usually do the trick. Thin out taller seedlings and harden-off plants over 1 week before transplanting to the garden when soil temperatures are 65°F.
Stake or cage these very long and productive vines. Water deeply and consistently when soil is dry to the touch. Feed every few weeks with a low-nitrogen fertilizer. Plant borage nearby to attract pollinators.
Yellow Pear tomatoes can be harvested after about 65 days and will produce right up until the first frost.
