Wheelie Wednesday - Pear Tomatoes?

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn.
Look what mom and I found in the garden.  They're pear-shaped tomatoes!
These must be one of the tomato plants that Suzanne had us plant for her.  We've never seen tomatoes that look like pears before!  Mom says they taste just like a real tomato tastes and not at all like a pear!

This is yesterdays' tomato harvest!  It looks like we have more golden colored tomatoes than red ones!
When mom and dad were at the Durham Fair this past Friday, look what they saw~

They really are called Pear tomatoes!

See you all next Wednesday!

Well it looks like a good name for them!
We have never seen pear tomatoes here in the UK but we will be looking for them now.
Wonder what would make them grow pear shaped!

Our Mom loves to dry pear tomatoes in her dehydrator - then in the winter she adds them to salads, soups and stews. YUM!!

We have never seen pear tomatoes either! They do look yummy. Our mom likes the yellow tomatoes better than the red ones. She says they are less acid-y.

Happy Wheelie Wednesday!

Mack said...

Mom says she is drooling right now thinking how good they must taste!

Jake of Florida said...

How interesting! Tomatoes are actually fruits, so it's appropriate some of them should be called pears!

Wirey love,

Mom has been getting some wonderful heirloom tomatoes at the Farmer's Market but is very sad to see the end is here. Nothing like a garden-fresh tomato.

Those pear ones look interesting - wonder if the taste is sweet?
