Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Being an indeterminate variety, the Purple Bumble Bee Tomato will continue to set and ripen fruit throughout the growing season, until halted by frost. Start by sowing seeds indoors, about 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. Ensure they are planted in well-draining soil and placed in a warm, sunny spot. Once the threat of frost has passed, transplant them outdoors with 24-36 inches between plants. Regular watering, especially in dry periods, will reward you with a bountiful harvest. Thanks to its compact growth habit, this tomato is also a good candidate for container gardening, but do ensure it has some form of support as the fruits develop.
