What are the pros? Fantastic flavor, beautiful
What are the cons? Took a while to produce
I grew Sunrise Bumblebee and Gold Medal in containers in a sunny location this year, keeping them regularly watered and fertilized according to instructions. The Sunrise Bumblebee took quite a bit longer to start producing than the advertised 70 days, but once it started, it was very prolific, and the tomatoes are both beautiful and *delicious* - one of the best-tasting tomatoes I've ever had! Sweet with a delightful tang. Like another review wrote, they never made it into the house. My husband and I ate them right off the vine.
(*Much* better than the Gold Medal right next to it. I planted it along with the Sunrise Bumblebee in late April. The Gold Medal finally produced three tomatoes in the middle of October, even though it flowered throughout the season and I saw bees fertilizing them. One rotted on the vine and the other two are still green after three weeks.)
