I grew Sungella in a hoophouse where it produced until November, and outdoors where it produced until the first freeze. I did not have a splitting problem, and we thoroughly enjoyed the taste. Extremely prolific, and the tomatoes were approximately 1 1/4 inches in diameter.

Great tasting sweet tomato... produced well but about 1/2 split .. I believe they might have been left on plant too long.. because of the color it was hard for me to tell when they were ripe... towards the end of the season I picked earlier and put on a sunny windowsill to ripen.. worked out better for me

Grown in 2007 drought conditions, so there is no excess rain or watering excuses for the bland flavor and mushy texture exhibited by this hardy cultivar that puts on ample yields of pretty fruit that falls short of the exterior and interior beauty of its brother Juane Flammee, who in spite of being equally mushy, at least has some flavor to vindicate it.

This tomato plant grew very quickly and the days to maturity was just about right. The tomatoes are very pretty too look at, but only if you can get one that's not split. It was difficult to get a ripe, yet not split tomato, especially with the tremendous amount of rain we've had this year. I found the taste to be bland.
