Indigo Pear Drops Tomato (65 days Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum

 

 

Back in 2015 we trialed this variety, which is a part of the Indigo series and absolutely love it, it was our favorite tomato of the season. We were super excited to to offer it in the catalog, but then found out it was not available,(sigh) until the perhaps 2018 season, so we waited patiently. This designer tomato is finally here for everyone to grow and we can't wait for you to try it.  It performed so well for us; impressed by the vast clusters of pear shaped fruits with sunny orange skin that ripening with indigo colored shoulders. The flavor was divine, delicately sweet, balanced with great tomato taste. Indeterminate. PVP

PLANTING

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85 degrees F. Cooler soil temperatures increase germination time or results in poor germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-6 weeks before last frost. Sow seeds in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85 degrees F soil temperatures. After the first true leaves appears, transplant into larger, 3-6” pots/cells/flats . Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 24-36” apart after last frost.  

How much does a packet plant:30-40 foot single row   

Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips:  Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost. Mulch and provide even moisture throughout the growing season with good drainage. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers, it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

Indigo pear tomatoes

Delicious and children love them as much as adults. They produced well when some others did less well.

Incredible production.

Of 18 small tomatoes I planted last year only 4 survived the heat and drought. Indigo Pear produced delicious tomatoes all season long up to a frost. Healthy plants were low maintenance except for some horn worms. Thanks Pinetree!

Awesome Tomatoes!!!!!!

These tomatoes were such a wonderful surprise. I have never had luck starting tomatoes from seed. I live in zone 9. I started these indoors and transplanted them outside a few weeks later. I had four plants in total. The plants grew quickly and very nicely. I found out quick I should have done my research and planted maybe 2 plants. When I read up on them, after transplanting all four plants, I found that each plant had the potential of producing 600 to 1000 tomatoes. Well, the research was close if not right. I did not keep count, however with four plants I found out quickly that I had more than my family needed and could eat. I ended up sharing with friends, family and neighbors. These tomatoes were so yummy every kept asking for more, even my kids. Even though one to two plants is more than enough for my family, I may consider doing the same number of plants next season so I can continue to share them.
