Piedmont Pear

First offered in the Seed Savers 2007 Yearbook by Bill Minkey of Darien, Wisconsin, who received seeds from Brad Gates of Wild Boar Farms, Vacaville, CA. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce large amounts of 1-5 oz., bi-colored, pear-shaped tomatoes. Fruits start ripening to yellow color and then develop a pink blush, inside and out. Flavors are very sweet, and it gets even richer as the season progresses. Color also gets more intense and strikingly beautiful as the season heats up.
