Plum vs Pear tomatoes

I have a question about pear tomatoes. From what I have read in about 5 minutes of internetting they appear to be distinct from plum tomatoes. However I can swear that I have seen a can of tomatoes from Italy described as pear tomatoes. Anyone got the goods on whether they are different or the same?
