Red Pear (Giant) Gransasso Strain

This is a great old Italian tomato wonderful for making a meaty tomato sauce. This is not the little cherry pear shaped tomato but rather a large, 6-12 oz., plump red pear shaped tomato with vertical ribs. The fruit are meaty and it is a pleasure to hold the bottom heavy ribbed tomatoes in your hand.

The fruit taste good even when fresh but is usually used as a cooking tomato – great for roasting, juice making, salsa, or sauce. Production is good on vigorous plants, even in heat and right up until the end of the season.
