About Green Bee F1 Hybrid

‘Green Bee F1’ Hybrid is a new favorite for chefs and growers for its tangy flavor, firm texture, and extraordinary shelf-life. Bred by Dr. Fred Hempel of ‘Artisan Seeds’, Green Bee Farm. A crispy-ripe tomato with tremendous culinary potential, ‘Green Bee F1’ has appeared on menus in the San Francisco Bay Area in a variety of dishes. A very firm texture is ideal for grilling and roasting, but ‘Green Bee’ can also be used for pickling, gazpacho, or salsa fresca. A great choice for eaters who do not typically like fresh tomatoes, as the ‘tomatoey’ flavors are muted in this variety. When left on the vine, it can even develop hints of stone fruit flavor. Best picked when the skin develops a clear yellow-orange hue, or later because fruit can hold for a long time on the vine without cracking or softening. Can be stored for a few weeks at room temperature or 2–3 months at 55°F. Tall, indeterminate, regular leaf plants. Midseason, the first ripe fruit can be harvested about 75 days after transplant.

    Thanks for the Green Bee shout out!

    One minor change – there is no more Baia Nicchia Farm. The name has been changed to Green Bee Farm.
