Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
Being an indeterminate variety, Chocolate Pear Tomatoes will continuously produce fruit throughout the growing season. To ensure their optimal growth, plant them in full sun and well-drained soil. Start seeds indoors approximately 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date, and then transplant them outdoors once the weather warms. Allow 24-36 inches of space between plants to accommodate their growth. Due to the weight of the fruit, provide support through staking or caging to prevent bending or breaking of the branches. Regular watering and occasional feeding will help you achieve a robust harvest of these unique and flavorful tomatoes.
