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.
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..
One of the best tomatos you can grow in Zone 9b
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.
These are my go-to tomatoes. There are no perfect tomatoes but these are really close
