Has anyone tasted Purple, Pink or Sunrise Bubblebee Tomatoes

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone has tried Purple, Pink or Sunrise Bubblebee tomatoes? If so, do they taste as good as they look? How did they do in terms of production for you? Which one is your favorite?

Thanks!

Jenny

I have Purple and pink for the first time this year.

Though word on the street is that they are very good.

I think you may mean Bumblebee. They are one of the more popular latest varieties. While I have not tried them, they look interesting.

I have the pink bumblebee for the first time this season.

What I am concerned about is if they will split.

There are quite a few seedlings and I don't have to keep them all but 4 plants would be a serious commitment of space. Then, my overhead sprinklers just don't give some varieties a chance! Attention to soil moisture is a must but I'm not at all for making my gardening more difficult while producing damaged crops. Will limit any new introduction.
