About Purple Bumble Bee

‘Purple Bumble Bee’ is a striped purple cherry tomato variety bred by Fred Hempel of Baia Nicchia Farm in Sunol, California and first offered commercially by his ‘Artisan Seeds’ in 2012. Indeterminate, but compact plants with regular leaf foliage that produce good yield of large, round and slightly oval-shaped cherry tomatoes. Beautifully, purple colored with dark green to silver grey stripes. Dark purple flesh with green gel. The taste is very good balanced, rich tomato flavor. Midseason, about 75 days from transplant.
