'Black Pear' grafted tomato

You know how I recently wrote a column on how I'm testing a grafted 'Black Pear' tomato? And how I mentioned that the tomatoes aren't your usual small "pear" size?

Well, I just harvested one of the larger tomatoes on the plant and, as you can see, it's huge! I included a quarter in the photo so you can have a size reference. That's certainly a pear tomato unlike any I've seen before. It was delicious, by the way.

I will be reporting on how productive the plant was -- compared to a non-grafted 'Black Pear' that is being grown in the same raised bed -- next month.
