60-70 days. Slightly elongated little cherries with the most outrageous striping in lime green and bronzy-purple! Crack-resistant fruits are produced all season long on plants that are unfazed by temperature extremes. The flavor is complex but sweet. Excellent holding quality makes this newer type outstanding for market. The bar just got higher! From Artisan Seeds.

Review:

First Review from a 1st time gardener. Felt compelled to use my first review for this awesome tomato. I set out to try and grow much of my food myself to have less expensive fresher Organic food at my doorstep. I purchased smart pots and many of the less expensive competing fabric grow bags and used good Organic potting mix along with tons of 54in cages you can find at hardware stores. Although I have many other things growing too I got hooked up on all the varieties of Tomatoes. I have probably 15 varieties going in one stage or another. 3 varieties have fruited and although the other two varieties (Purple Cherokee and Pink Brandywine) have made some great tasting sandwiches I want to review this little Bumblebee because it has not cracked and split like my larger heirlooms are. I like this little tomatoes flavor, being complex and pretty sweet. The skin is a little tough but I like how it seems to taste kinda fruity in a way I cannot exactly place. Makes a unique healthy snack.

Review:

This was the first tomato from my garden this year. Picked my first one before 4th of July. It is now September and it is putting out another steady crop. Beautiful when color is fully developed. Sweet flavor. These don't make it to the house unless I have promised them to someone. Friends and family always inquiring about when I'll have more! Definitely will be growing more plants next season here in the Garden state.

What are the pros? easy to grow, heavy cropper

What are the cons? none

Review:

Great little tomato! Super easy to grow, they stand up in their cages pretty well, and one of the earliest tomatoes in my garden. The colour is something else, beautiful stripes, and the best flavour. It is complex, not too sweet, will be growing these again next year.

What are the pros? Great flavor, did not crack

What are the cons? Very long vine

Review:

This tomato is very pretty, very productive and a bit larger than other cherry types. My family just loves them for the "real tomato" flavor. We keep a bowl of them on the table and they get eaten by hand as fast as I can pick them. I'm growing this one again for 2016 but will offer a taller support next year as this plant well out grew its traditional cage.
