Pole Cherry Tomato 'Red and Yellow Pear Blend' Organic

Product Description

This heirloom blend brings you both red and yellow, firm fruit that can be eaten like grapes all summer long. Sweet, mild flavor and low acidity make these tomatoes traditionally best for pickling and preserves, but they are great for salads and snacking, too. 'Red Pear' seeds are dyed red, while the 'Yellow Pear' seeds remain natural so you know which color tomato you are sowing. Vigorous vines easily reach 6'.
