Indigo Pear Drops Tomato (Organic, 65 Days)

5 Reviews
Back in 2015 we trialed this variety. It is part of the Indigo series. We absolutely love it, 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 perhaps the 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 ripened with indigo colored shoulders. The flavor is divine, delicately sweet, balanced with great tomato taste. PVP    

 

20 seeds

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after last frost. 

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. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as 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.

So beautiful, so bland

These have no flavor! They are very beautiful and very productive, but they taste like they’re from the supermarket.

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.
