This is one of my favorite cherry tomatoes. Plants are VERY PRODUCTIVE, yielding all season. A unique cherry tomato with small, creamy white-yellow fruits glazed in a beautiful amethyst-purple color. Plants show very nice production.

Bosque Bumblebee is a small salad-type tomato, though still larger than a cherry tomato at about two inches in size, and it has a mild, almost citrusy flavor with an appealing juicy texture.
This variety is certainly a contender for the most fruits produced on a single plant. Bears copious amounts of yellow colored, cherry tomato fruits in huge clusters that can reach 40-60! Nice, mild and sweet flavor. The fruits keep pretty well too.
Elongated, large cherries in clusters. The color (and flavor!) is a full-blown assault on the senses-lavender and purple stripes, turning to technicolor olive-green, red, and brown/blue stripes when fully ripe. Really wild!
