The Q&A Archives: Yellow Tear Drop Tomatoes

Question: I tried yellow tear drop tomatoes -- best flavor in history. What source is there? Will seeds come true ?

Answer: If your yellow tomatoes were the old-fashioned heirloom type (sometimes called "open-pollinated"), you can save the seeds and expect them to produce plants with similar fruits. The newer hybrids won't always come true, even though tomatoes are self-pollinating. If you avoid hybrid varieties you'll be able to grow the same tomato from seed saved from each plant next year, even if different varieties were grown close together.

Seeds of yellow pear tomatoes (teardrop shaped) are available from Territorial Seed Company, PO Box 157, Cottage Grove, OR 97424 and from Totally Tomatoes, PO Box 1626, Augusta, GA 30903-1626.
