The shape of these tomatoes is the basis for its two most common names: teardrop and pear tomato. They are an elegant addition to any salad, as well as being a flavorful addition to stir-fry, vegetable sautes and relish trays.
A material called rockwool is used to stabilize the tomato plants’ roots and to hold the nurturing water. The hydroponic growing process allows the vines to grow vertically as high as twenty feet tall. Automatically regulated, the water is kept at seventy-five degrees and the humidity level at eighty-five percent. Because the farming area is enclosed and wind is not an option for pollination, Beylik Family Farms uses the help of bumblebees for pollination purposes.
