Product Description

This is an old North Italian variety specially selected by Franchi Sementi. It is a red, pear-shaped beefsteak. An outstanding producer of huge (as in 8-18 ounce) very tasty fruit. Great fresh eating. Early for such a large plant (70-75 days). This is not the small pear shaped tomato called red pear by U.S. seed companies. Pear shaped with vertical ribs - a must try. Really meaty containing few seeds. Indeterminate. 1 gram packet, approximately 250 seeds.

  1. Another great one from SOI 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jan 2015

    A really great, tasty productive tomato with bulk for our heirloom mix. would give it 5 stars but I save that for your San Marzano Redorta! Have had excellent luck with all the tomato varieties we have trailed from SOI (and I'm a commercial grower who uses many seed sources). Thanks for providing these great varieties.

  2. The most awesome taste ever and huge size! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Nov 2014

    We tried growing these tomatoes for the first time this year. We planted seeds in the house on 4/24 and I was kind of late transplanting them to a newly built greenhouse (6/1). I also planted some outside. Living at 7000 feet elevation is a little more of a challenge for gardening. The plants outside didn't fare as well. But, if I plant them earlier next year, I have more hope for them. However, the ones in the greenhouse were fabulous! Beautiful big tasty tomatoes and they, mixed with some San Marzano I had planted made the best sauce we have ever had. I had a hard time knowing whether I liked one over the other, but the size and meatiness made the Red Pear the winner. I will definitely be planting both again next year. Thankfully, we had enough to do some canning to get us through the winter.

  3. Great for home; not so great for market 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2014

    As other reviews state, these tomatoes are large, tasty, low in seeds and productive. Downsides? Rather rough and irregular in shape and a bit hard to market (I am a market grower) probably due to unusual and often irregular shape. If growing for home use--go for it! If growing for market, may have a bit of a selling job ahead of you.

  4. The Best I Have Grown 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2014

    I have grown tomatoes for 50 years and these are the best I have ever had. Firm, sweet, large fruit that can be eaten fresh or in a sauce. Plants grew over 7 feet and were loaded. I have already bought my seeds for next year and will no longer grow any other full size tomato. Everyone I gave tomatoes to raved and wanted more.

  5. Huge Tomatoes Produce for the South! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Oct 2014

    This is my all time favorite tomato. In Atlanta (zone7/8) it produces from early July through October. Lots of tomatoes of large size. These are excellent for fresh tomato sauces or main course fresh tomato recipes as they are meaty with few seeds. I have grown them for 3 seasons and they have produced under very hot and dry weather, excessively rainy weather, and (this year), perfect growing weather. A winner.

  6. Old Faithful 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2014

    Do you want a big crop of great tasting tomatoes? Do you want a reliable, no nonsense tomato? Do you want great taste? This one has it all. My wife uses it for fresh sauce: 2 tomatoes makes a very nice fresh sauce for 1/2 pound of pasta.
