Pear-shaped Tomato

It is a tomato developing a medium-size and characteristic pear-shaped red fruit. Its production is not regular over the years and is strongly influenced by biotic adversities.
A tomato with a rich pulp, it is mainly used to prepare preserves, but it is also eaten in salads. It is a variety which was sold in the past, while today it is not very appreciated by the market, because when it is ripe, the fruit tends to generate fissures at the top. This feature considerably reduces the conservation and transport possibilities.
