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.


Italy has many pear shaped tomatoes and identifies them by the area they are grown.This one grows in the area near Gran Sasso – a mountain in the Abruzzo region of central Italy.
