70 days. Chefs love the luminous swirls of reds and oranges, inside the fruits and out! Everyone loves the sweet, fruity taste, too! Oblong little fruits weigh barely an ounce, sometimes show a pronounced beak at the blossom end. Another member of the incredible new ‘Artisan’ series.

Review:

I started these a little late perhaps, end of April, and neglected them. They were the smallest seedlings of all the varieties I grew, but they caught up nicely. I have two in a 10 gallon grow bag and they are monsters which have needed numerous stakes and ties and still they are out of control. Next year I will do one per bag if I grow these again. I used a super fortified all organic soil mix with plenty of rock dusts, kelp, fish meal, fish bone meal, fresh earthworm castings, etc and composts. Have top dressed once with kelp and EWC and given a couple of liquid fish feedings. So far these have been perfectly healthy with zero problems. Fruit set is very good but not enormous and I have been getting a couple per day ripening for the past week or so. They are sweeter than the Pink Bumblebees, don't have quite the acidic finish but overall they are quite tasty. The skin is not as tough as the Pink Bumblebees either. Inside and out they are stunning.

Review:

Love these! They are sweet but have a savory edge to them. Not late not early I ripen. A two bite tomato with a great flavor. Decent yield but not a heavy producer. No trouble starting these inside or when I transplanted...and spring and summer weather has been really wacky. I was afraid they wouldn’t make it due to torrential rain right after transplanting followed by a ridiculous heat wave (horrid year for beets,radish, and lettuces/greens). Highly recommend giving these tasty (and beautiful) tomatoes a go!

Review:

I grew these in 2015, my first year starting tomatoes from seed, and it was a clear winner for the grape/cherry category. It did very well despite that not being a bumper tomato year here and my landlord delightedly let me know some volunteers had come up and produced fruit the following summer. I'm looking forward to another crop this summer.

Review:

I grow at least ten to twelve varieties of heirloom tomatoes every year, and I tried this one last year for the first time. Hands down, the star of the garden. It grew so huge, it toppled the extra large cage, but that didn't stop it from producing. It produced plentiful one ounce tomatoes by the DOZEN daily from late August through to the BEGINNING of NOVEMBER (we had a really warm fall in Southern Ontario). This one is my new favourite, I can't say enough good things about it. Highly recommended. The fruit is also really beautifully streaked and looked amazing on skewers and in caprese plates. A

Review:

The Sunrise Bumblebee is heading into it's 5th consecutive year in our garden. Easy to grow, have no diseases or issues, withstand extreme weather changes & produce proficiently until hard frost (& through it if protected) What I love most: the flavor. Everyone has their own preference but these to me are perfection. Just the right amount of sweetness & acidity. Firm skin making a nice crunch when bitten into. Not too seedy & perfect for popping in your mouth w/o being too large. These keep for so long it's unreal! We have had fresh cherry tomatoes in a Christmas salad with these. They can last weeks to months after being picked depending on ripeness when picked. Favorite way to preserve these beauties is by drying them. Sprinkle some herbs, salt if desired in sliced tomatoes. Dry then throw in Jar. Makes a great snack like a tomato chip. Store in freezer for cooking w/ as well. Top 2 Cherry Tomato. The other being the White Cherry. If I could give this 10 stars I would. :*)
