What are the pros? prolific, easy to grow
What are the cons? small fruit
This is seriously the best tomato plant I've ever grown. The fruit is ridiculously delicious. I eat it by the handful. The plants are super prolific and seem very tolerant to the various extreme weather we can get in Missouri. These were among the first fruits of the tomato varieties I have to start to ripen. I would only warn - don't pick them too early. Let them stay on the vine until they're pretty good and dark pink/red. Much better taste if vine-ripened, when possible. I only wish the fruit was bigger because they're that good.

What are the pros? flavor, easy to grow
What are the cons? none
I planted five different cherry varieties this year, and the Purple Bumblebee is easily the favorite cherry of everyone is my home! It is delicious! This beautiful little tomato has grown well in less than perfect conditions. I planted a few on a fence row in poor dirt & they have done very well. I will plant these again!
What are the pros? Keeps well, crack resistant
What are the cons? None
This is perhaps the best cherry tomato variety I have ever grown. For the first 25 years of my life I absolutely hated raw tomatoes but, the bumblebees and the Marmande varieties have changed that entirely. This variety has a fairly thick skin which I don't mind at all but others might. Out of the ten plants I had last year not a single developed blossom end rot nor did any of the fruits crack. One of the aspects of raw tomato that I used to detest so much was the "snot" but these bees have virtually none. One of my wife's favorites since my growing them last year. I'll be growing them every year from now on!

What are the pros? great yield, cool color
What are the cons? good taste, but not memorable
These plants did very well in the high tunnel. Large sturdy plants that just wouldn't quit. Amazing yield. Interesting color.

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.
