Rita's Black Pear

  • Model: packet
  • Units in Stock: 4


I grew this as a container plant because the seedlings had that dwarf look. The plants stayed small, a little over two foot tall with a bushy habit and PL foliage. The very dark brown pear-shaped fruit was a treat - smooth and full-flavored. The fruit is flawless in appearance as well. Look how many I picked at one time off two small plants. They produced like that all season. Mine were about 65 days to maturity.
I am not certain the plant habit matches what is known about the tomato named after Rita De Clereq of Belgium. This variety came to me from Belgium so I assume it is authentic. Anyway, it makes a great container plant and is very productive and healthy.
