Pear tomatoes
« on: August 23, 2013, 04:36:32 PM »
I just bought a five pound can of pear tomatoes. The picture shows what looks like plum or Roma tomatoes. The pear tomatoes I'd seen in the past looked like cherry tomatoes except pear shaped. I'm guessing they mean either plum tomatoes or something like Dan marzanos which kinda have a pear shape sometimes. What do you guys say?

Joey, maybe they are "pears" that look like tomatoes :-D
 
Can you send us a pic of the can label and one of the fruit?

Here's a picture of the tomatoes. Apparently in California pear is one of three shapes of tomatoes they designate.

Joey, those look like Romas . They sell them here in all the markets. Not very flavorful but cheaper.
San Marzanos look like Romas but with much better flavor.
