About Red Pear

‘Red Pear’ is one of America’s oldest heirlooms, dating back to the 1700s. It can be found in many of the earliest seed catalogs. Donated to USDA in 1995 by Petoseed Company, Inc., USA. The GRIN Accession number is PI 647513. Listed in EU Plant Variety Database by Consorzio Sativa Società Cooperativa Agricola, Cesena, Italy in 2013. It is also featured in the book ‘100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden’ by Carolyn J. Male of Salem, NY, USA.
Hundreds of pear-shaped, deep-red, cherry (0.5oz./15g) fruits are produced by vigorous, indeterminate vines with regular leaf foliage and a compact growth habit. The flesh is succulent and satisfyingly sweet, making it an irresistible fresh snack and a fancy salad topper. The first fruits will ripen during midseason, about 70 days after transplant.
