Tomato Seeds - F1 Peardrops

A yellow-fruited trailing variety with highly attractive pear-shaped fruit and a delicious flavour. Peardrops is a traditional green shouldered variety that has a good flavour balance of sweetness and acidity. Plants are useful for planting in mixed baskets and containers or even hanging baskets. (Bush variety - very easy to grow as trusses do not require support and fruits without side shoots being removed.)

Tom says: We trial hundreds of new varieties every year in order to make sure only the very best varieties make it into our catalogue. The difference in flavours is incredible – from savoury cooking tomatoes to pure sweetness for snacking and every conceivable flavour combination in between, we have something for every taste bud and growing situation.
