The earliest and sweetest yet
Days to Maturity: 60 from transplant
Honeybee earns its sweet name with every bite. This yellow cherry tomato ripens quickly and deliciously in huge clusters, each 1-inch-diameter fruit bursting with sugars and juice. We have found it to be irresistible straight from the vine, and there are no complaints about the yields—you will harvest giant trusses of this quick-and-easy tomato.
Very well-branched, this tomato is vigorous right out of the seed. Many cherry tomatoes have been bred with tough skins (to resist cracking in the hot sun), but Honeybee is succulent and mouthwatering, through and through. The plant is quite disease resistant, and the yields are huge. There’s no downside to this beauty.
What, you may ask, does “semi-determinate” mean? Well, for Honeybee it means that the plant will reach about 4 to 5 feet tall (instead of growing up and up and up like some do) and that the fruit will set in large clusters all at once—but also that these clusters may repeat several times over a long season. Instead of getting a few ripe tomatoes every day, you’ll get a giant ripe cluster once every few weeks, depending on how long your summer is, what the weather does, and how you feed and water the plant. Many gardeners love semi-determinate plants because they are the best of both worlds: a big harvest at once, plus a more restrained plant habit.
Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2? feet apart, and cage or stake them to hold up all those yummy yellow cherries.
