Description

Bella Rosa Tomato is a determinate, hybrid variety with excellent disease resistance for hot and humid climates. This is the perfect variety for areas where growing heirlooms can be quite difficult. Bella Rosa Tomato is resistant to Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus. It will perform better in heat than most varieties and will continue to set fruit once temperatures warm in early summer. Fruits are large, round and firm with exceptional flavor. In our trials, Bella Rosa produced flavor that was consistent with heirloom varieties. For best results, prune bottom stems at transplanting to provide additional airflow to plants. Seeds are pelleted for ease of planting in seed trays.

 

Growing Information

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date. If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be "stepped-up" to 4" pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. We recommend using the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

Big, beautiful fruit

Bella Rosa set consistently large, round fruit (even in the heat) on a manageable-sized plant. The flavor is incredible. Perfect for a tomato sandwich and also added great flavor to my tomato sauce. My only con is that it set so many large tomatoes in a cluster (what a problem to have!!) that the branches were breaking as the fruits in the cluster grew heavier.. I solved that by wrapping the splits with electrical tape and using stronger ties. I will definitely plant these again and may just let the branches bend to the ground as the fruits grow bigger..

Great looking and tasting tomato with good production. Plants are small. The only draw back is that these seem to be more prone to blossom end rot or at least they were at the beginning of the season. Now somebody will say that is my fault, but I grew 5 other varieties and Bella Rosa ranked 2nd in taste, tied for 1st in production, 2nd in splits and cracks but dead last for blossom end rot

Very productive. Produces lots of large tomatoes. Flavor is good. The negative is that it was the only variety that I grew that had problems with blossom end rot.
