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.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Flavor, size

Review:

Did not like these at all. Very bland. The size was too large to be a "cherry" tomato. I would call it a salad tomato. It produced a lot of fruit, but most ended up in the compost bin because no one in the house liked them.

Review:

I was excited to learn of Purple Bumblebee in winter of '15, especially as the climate here can vary from quite cool to many days over 95 degrees F. I got two vines of PB and planted them in average soil. They have done really well, producing beautiful fruit with no problems at all. The tomatoes are a bit larger than typical cherry, but that is fine with me. Flavor is balanced; flesh is meaty; coloring is exceptional; yield is good

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.
