Tomato 'Sunrise Bumble Bee' (Organic)

Sunrise Bumble Bee and its relatives from the 'Artisan Tomato' stables are the next big thing in open-pollinated tomatoes. Through our connections with the seed merchants, Diggers is the first to release these 'heirlooms of the future' here in Australia. Holding well on the vine, these are summer jewels of sweetness best enjoyed straight from the bush. As sweet as Tommy Toe and even more striking than Tigerella this tomato is a must for the vegie garden this summer.

How to grow

Sow seed 6-8 weeks before you want to plant out your tomatoes. Never plant tomatoes in the same bed two years running as you risk infection from a build up of pests and diseases. Tomatoes need an open, sunny position, with plenty of air circulation to thrive. Tomatoes are best in a bed which has been heavily manured for a previous crop such as broccoli. A soil that is too rich in nutrients will produce prolific, but soft, sappy growth which is prone to disease. Long, leggy toato seedlings can be planted very deeply or even on their sides, as the stem is able to grow roots when covered with soil, and a large, healthy root system will develop.
