Indigo Pear Drops Tomato (Organic, 65 Days)

6 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.

Happy crop!

I've bought my seeds for years from Pinetree. It's always a pleasant experience with customer service and your prices are fair. I have a happy crop, not only this season but all seasons in the past years. Your seed company is the only place I buy my seeds as far as I'm concerned. Thank you!

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!
