Pink bumblebee is a pretty cherry tomato that is red with gold stripes and a great flavour. It’s perfect for salads and snacking.

This is an indeterminate variety so needs staking to keep the fruit off the ground. Productive.

 

  • Botanical name: Solanum lycopersicum
  • Planting: Plant in late spring after frosts are unlikely. Plant 60-100cm apart.
  • Care: This tomato is best staked to keep the plant off the ground as it grows. Make sure to plant in well fertilised soil and water regularly.
  • Harvest: Harvest when at full colour with the colours bright.
  • Diseases: Tomatoes can fall prey to some viral diseases so don’t plant in the same place that tomatoes were growing in the past two years. Although I haven’t had any trouble with blossom end rot with this variety, make sure you don’t let them dry out between watering to lessen the risk.
  • Cooking: Tomatoes really don’t need any introduction to cooking as they are used in so many dishes. This one is particularly nice in salads and on sandwiches. salad rolls.
  • Seed Saving: Tomatoes are self pollinating so you don’t need bees or other insects to pollinate them. That said, although they won’t usually cross with other tomatoes you should plant at least 4 metres away from other tomatoes to make sure. Keep in mind that ‘potato leaf’ varieties will readily cross with other tomatoes so if you are also growing a potato leaf variety it will be best to net either this tomato or that one away from insects to make sure it doesn’t cross with it.
