Yellow Pear tomatoes add a certain something to a salad or fresh vegetable platter. Their bright yellow color and perfect pear shape make these some of the prettiest tomatoes in the garden. And the flavor isn't half bad, either. Popping a Yellow Pear tomato into your mouth is like biting into pure sunshine. The tomatoes are firm and juicy, with a bright, nicely balanced flavor that is hard to beat.
Yellow Pear grows on indeterminate vines that produce fruit throughout the growing season. It's an early producer that gives the gardener a high yield of tomatoes. The earliest report of the Yellow Pear tomato goes back to 1811, and it first showed up in catalogs in the 1860's.
