Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Piedmont Pear - sliced fruit. 2013-08-29.


Indet., regular leaf plants produce loads of bi-colored pear-shaped fruits, 1-4 oz. Fruits start ripening to yellow color and then get pink blush both outside and inside. Flavor is very good and sweet, and it gets even better as the season progresses. Color also gets more intense and strikingly beautiful when the weather gets hotter. This is a variety to consider if you are looking for smaller bi-colored tomatoes earlier in the season. High yields.
