Hi Chuck,
Thanks for your response.
I went out early this morning to have a look at my yellow pear plant
and, miracle of miracles, the lower branches of the plant had revived.
Yesterday I had removed most of the suckers from the plant (the smallest
in the garden at about 15 inches, which makes me think you're right
about the tiny root ball). I am also thinking that the clouds here
yesterday and this morning must have helped or the sun would certainly
have finished off this plant. What a strange season.

Unfortunately, the growing tip is still wilted, but I will check it
later, and if the lower half is still doing well, I may just lop off the
top half and see what comes. 

Of course, there is nothing at all scientific about my approach, and I
may well lose the plant in the end. If the plant dies I will probably
put something other than a tomato in that spot this year. I'll post the
