Proving that exceptionally good things do come in small packages, this heirloom pear tomato is prolific and oh so tasty! The flavor is deliciously tangy, making it perfect for snacking or for summer party hors d'oeuvres. Topping out at 2” in length, these bite-sized marvels smother the plant from July through October. With attractive golden yellow fruit, this tomato looks as good as it tastes. Easy to grow, taking lots of heat or a bit less, it is one of the most prolific tomatoes you'll ever grow. Plant in full sun in fertile, well-drained soil. As with most tomatoes, it is best to add bone meal and calcium to the soil at the time of planting. Give it a bit of water regularly (every 2-3 days), then as plants grow, begin cutting back on the frequency but water them more deeply. For maximum flavor, wait until fruits reach their full golden color. Deer resistant.
