Indigo – Pear Drops


A new release from the Oregon State University’s high flavonoid breeding program. The first pear-shaped tomato in our Indigo series. The 1″ pear-shaped fruits have purple/black shoulders at maturity due to high anthocyanin levels. Excellent sweet flavor. Huge yields of 7 gram fruits, potentially 600-1,000 fruits per plant under ideal growing conditions. Grafting will improve yields even more. Bred by Dr. Jim Myers at Oregon State using traditional plant breeding techniques. The fruits draw their color from the wild tomatoes found in the Galapagos Islands and Peru. Indeterminate. 65 days from transplant. (OSU S285) PVP 201500116
