Tomato ‘Honeycomb’

Family: Solanaceae

Tomato ‘Honeycomb’ is a cherry tomato variety, bred by Simon Crawford from Burpee Seeds that was first launched in 2018.  ‘Honeycomb’ tomato plants produce long trusses of small, orange coloured, cherry tomatoes.  In the UK, this tomato variety can be grown in a glasshouse or outdoors, during the summer months.  Plants can be grown directly in the ground, or planted in containers of good quality compost.

In the UK, I recommend sowing ‘Honeycomb’ tomato seeds from February to April.  Tomato seeds need warmth to initiate germination, accordingly seeds should be started off inside a glasshouse or polytunnel, a porch or conservatory, or on a very bright and sunny window sill.  These plants can spend their entire lives in glasshouses or polytunnels; alternatively, once all risk of frost has passed ‘Honeycomb’ tomato plants can be hardened off and planted outside in garden beds and borders, or containers of good quality compost.

‘Honeycomb’ is a cherry tomato with an intense and deliciously sweet and tangy, fruity flavour!  I would absolutely recommend ‘Honeycomb’; this tomato has a superb flavour – it’s one of my favourite tomatoes.
