This heirloom tomato blend brings you both red and yellow, firm fruit that can be eaten like grapes all summer long. Sweet, mild flavor and low acidity make these tomatoes traditionally best for pickling and preserves, but they are great for salads and snacking, too. Vines grow up to 6′ long and produce 1″-2″ long, 2″ wide, white, red, or yellow pear-shaped tomatoes. Botanical Interests’® Red & Yellow Pear Blend Pole Cherry Tomato Seeds are USDA Organic and have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.

What is an heirloom seed?
An heirloom variety is one that has been passed down from generation to generation. Generally, the variety must have been around for at least 50 years. They are open-pollinated, which means they have been exposed to natural pollination methods like insects or winds. They aren’t hybrids or genetically modified.
