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:

This is my 2nd year of living in the rainy state of Washington. Many of the varieties I grew for years in the Midwest do not grow good here.. I tried several varieties last year.. Not much luck. I did more research and tried the little Purple Bumble Bee tomato.. WHAT A GOLD mind of flavor ... It grows well here.. The plants are huge and full of tomatoes..The best part.. They are not cracking and splitting and getting diseased from all the rain in my Skagit Valley area.. We do get sunshine..beautiful here..but lots of rain..Now this tomato is definitely going to be a must for growing every year..I HIGHLY recommend this delicious tasting, beautiful to look at, crack free little tomato..It is a smaller tomato but the flavor of a real good tomato with a touch of sweetness is well worth the work for these little cute tomatoes.. I almost hate to cut into them because they are so pretty.. That feeling and thought passes when I remember the flavor! Please try these. Well worth it..

Review:

I grew four varieties in 5 gallon buckets this year (Purple Bumble, Chestnut Chocolate, Barry's Crazy, Green Grape). In terms of production, the Bumble plants are easily producing more tomatoes than the Chocolate and Green Grape combined. Yields are really really good - and plant has continued to flower and produce throughout the season. The tomato is sweet with good flavor, but the Green Grape and Purple Bumble were outstanding. Great salad tomato - not the best at anything, but good at everything.

What are the pros? prolific, easy to grow

What are the cons? small fruit

Review:

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.

Review:

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

Review:

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!
