Pear tomatoes are heavy producers of low acid heirloom cherry tomatoes which are beautiful additions to summer salads.
Little yellow pear tomatoes do not have as strong a flavor as most red cherry tomatoes. In fact, the flavor of yellow pear shaped tomatoes varies widely from garden to garden. These are my observations:
Ripening just 75 days from setting out, this will be one of the earliest tomatoes in your garden. Probably the first ripe, home grown tomato you will harvest.
Kids adore these golden gems and eat them like candy. They are sure to please your pickiest eaters.
Yellow pears can't be beat for aesthetic appeal. If you enjoy gourmet cooking, you will find them easy and unfussy to use as a garnish on many summer dishes.
Their milder taste makes them a popular salad tomato as it does not fight with the other flavors in the bowl.
This is also a good variety to use when making oven roasted or oven dried tomatoes as the flavor will intensify when they are processed in this way.
Canning Yellow Pear tomatoes is their oldest traditional use.
Simmer 3 lbs. of clean, halved pear tomatoes in a sugar syrup consisting of 3/4 cup of water, 4 cups of sugar, a cup of fresh lemon juice, a chunk of peeled ginger root and mixed pickling spices until they are transparent.
Cover the saucepan and let the mixture cool. Remove the ginger root. Place the pot back on the heat and bring it to a boil. Boil for at least 1 full minute. Let it boil up to 3 minutes to thicken it a bit if it's too thin.
Pour the tomato preserves into hot canning jars (you'll need 6 or 7 pint jars) and process in boiling water for 20 minutes.
Red Pear tomtoes may also be used to make this pear tomato recipe.
