Peardrops cherry tomatoes splitting on vine

carolsewzitJuly 8, 2011

I tried a new cherry tomato this year,its called pear drops. It produced tons of fruit, but before it got ripe enough to pick it got big splits on it. Its been very hot here in St Louis, and after a heavy rain I noticed that a lot of them began to split, I don't think I will try them again next year. They do have a pretty good flavor but I wouldn't recommend them.

I always have this problem with my yellow pear tomatoes. It is almost a guarantee that they will crack after a dryspell then a lot of rain
