Purple Bumble Bee

Purple red with metallic green stripes, straight up tomato flavor





Germination-7-14 Days

Indoors- 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

Harvest- When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips-Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

Prolific, hardy and beautiful

Absolutely my best cherry tomato this year, it is a foot taller than all of my other tomato plants! Indeterminate habit but very upright, it’s been easy to grow against a cattle panel. It was the second to set and ripen fruit (despite the fruits being twice the size of the tiny cherries that ripened first), and has been impervious to physiological leaf roll and leaf yellowing during our early heat and dry spells this year. The color is absolutely gorgeous—these are ripe when the green stripes lose their metallic look. Lovely, rich flavor. Definitely growing these again and again!

Great flavor

Loved this variety. Was tough at 1st knowing when they were ready to pick, but they had a very deep tomato flavor & really sweet. Will plant them again this year
