78 Days to maturity (from transplant). Solanum lycoperscium. Yellow Pear Tomato Seeds. Non-GMO, annual, open-pollinated, heirloom, heat tolerant, indeterminate, cherry tomato. Suitable for growing in garden plots, raised beds, and greenhouses. Resistant to disorders.

Golden yellow teardrop-shaped 1-2 inch long cherry tomatoes. ~10,000 seeds/oz.
Tomato seeds are a warm weather crop best if started indoors about 6-8 weeks prior to final spring frost. Plant 2-3 seeds 1/4" deep per cell in fertile, humusy, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Seeds germinate in 5-14 days, transplant best starts to 1 per pot or 18-36" apart in the garden. Ideal in container gardening. Before sowing, know whether the seed is determinate or indeterminate, as each will exhibit different habits.
Determinate varieties mature to a predetermined size, producing its fruit all at once with only a minor need for staking. Indeterminate varieties grow indefinitely through the season, producing non-stop fruit while requiring heavy support. Yellow Pear tomato seeds are an indeterminate tomato crop.
Indeterminate plants mean that they have a vine growing habit. This means you need a trellis of some kind, but no worries, trellises are easy to come by. Even a functioning or old chain-link fence works great as a trellis. Sometimes this tomato can grow up to 12 feet tall!
Non-GMO Yellow Pear Tomatoes in the Vegetable Garden
Tomato is the quintessential staple of summer gardening and arguably offers the most seed diversity among all seasonal fruits. Available in every possible color, shape, and size, tomato is a high-heat and full sun favorite that thrives from container and patio gardening. Along with cucumber and summer squash, the tomato plant is one of the most productive, hardy, and heavy fruiting crops of the season.
Indeterminate. Yellow Pear are miniature pear-shaped tomatoes, that are yellow of course and 1-2" long. Said to be very sweet, so much so that most never make it to the kitchen and are eaten on the spot. My brother's kids used to eat these like candy in the garden. Tall plants bear large and continuous harvests throughout the summer.
Harvesting Yellow Pear Tomatoes
Smaller varieties such as the cherry are ready to harvest at about 80 days from sowing while larger varieties like the beefsteak may require a few extra weeks. Although vine-ripened fruit is always preferred, tomatoes can just as easily be harvested early and ripen indoors by being stored in a paper bag or box along with a banana for its ethylene gas. Ripest tomatoes may be pulled from the vine by hand, while more firm ones should be clipped with shears.
About Yellow Pear Tomato Seeds
Solanum lycoperscium. (75-80 Days). Determinate.
The Yellow Pear Tomato seeds are high yielding and moderately easy to grow. The bite-sized resulting treats have been referred to as "candy on the vine" because of their natural sweetness.
The Texas Cooperative Extension at Texas A&M recommends this variety for Texas!

"Similar to the Yellow Plum, but the fruits have a slim neck or distinct pear shape."
1932 Burpee's seed catalog says...
"An attractive small fruited tomato. Enormously productive, and the fruits make excellent salad or may be used from marmalade. They are sweet and delicious."

Indeterminate - Indeterminate tomatoes are vine-type plants that sprawl (requiring a cage or trellis to support them) and continue to grow throughout the season. Indeterminate tomato plants will continue to produce tomatoes for the rest of the season, so you can harvest continually.
Well-draining, loose (sandy loam), slightly acidic (6.2 to 6.8), and moisture retaining. Too much nitrogen in the soil may lead to more foliage production and less fruiting. Tomatoes like more phosphorus and potassium than other vegetables.
Warmer (70-85 F)
Yes. Start Indoors 7-9 weeks before your last spring frost date.
24 to 36 Inches
Mid - Ready to harvest 70 to 80 days from transplant. Tricky to get a tomato by the 4th of July with these varieties. They are good mid-summer producers for most USDA Zones.
Pests and Diseases:
Resistant to disorders. Common pests known to harm tomato plants, in general, include the tomato hornworm, cutworm, aphids, flea beetles, tomato fruit worms, and whiteflies. Also, watch for common diseases such as blossom end rot, fusarium wilt, powdery mildew, verticillium wilt, late blight, bacterial canker/spot, and tobacco mosaic virus. Most of these can be prevented by maintaining a regular watering schedule and avoiding overwatering. Regularly check your plants for pest damage throughout the season. For treating pest and disease problems, we recommend using an organic neem-based product.
