Organic Bumble Bee Cherry Tomato Mix Art Pack

Organic Bumble Bee Cherry Tomato Mix Art Pack

Flavorful Miniature Marvels

The Bumble Bee Cherry Tomato Mix is a delightful assortment of small-sized tomatoes celebrated for their vibrant colors and delectable flavors. This mix typically includes a variety of cultivars, such as the Bumble Bee Cherry, Sunrise Bumble Bee, and Pink Bumble Bee, renowned for their captivating appearance and delicious taste.

These cherry tomatoes are descendants of the heirloom tomato lineage and have been carefully bred to encompass a spectrum of colors, including red, orange, yellow, and pink, often with marbled patterns resembling bumblebees—hence their name. The plants bear clusters of these bite-sized fruits, creating a visually appealing display in gardens or containers.

Regarding taste, the Bumble Bee Cherry Tomato Mix offers a delightful balance of sweetness and tanginess. The flavor profile varies slightly between subspecies, with some leaning towards a sweeter taste while others offer a slightly tangy or citrusy note. Their small size makes them perfect for snacking, salads, or as vibrant garnishes in various culinary creations.

Cultivating these cherry tomatoes from seed requires specific growing conditions. They thrive in warm climates with plenty of sunlight, requiring at least 6-8 hours of direct sun exposure daily. Well-draining, fertile soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 6.8 is optimal for their growth. When planting from seed, it's recommended to start indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep in seedling trays or small pots, ensuring consistent moisture and warmth until germination occurs.

Transplant seedlings into larger containers or the garden once they've developed several true leaves and all danger of frost has passed. Regular watering and support for the vines, such as stakes or cages, aid in healthy growth and abundant fruit production. With proper care, the Bumble Bee Cherry Tomato Mix promises a colorful, flavorful addition to any garden or culinary experience.

Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Soak the soil 4"-6" deep at 7-day intervals.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when individual fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.
