Grew this variety for the first time this year. It has a good flavor but the skin is just a little tougher than Golden Gem which is the other variety I am growing. It is a larger cherry tomato. It was a heavy producer at first but now seems to be succumbing to some type of wilt disease. I could not find any information on how resistent this variety is but it definitely not as resistent as Golden Gem. We have been having an extreme heat wave which has stressed my plants considerable but Sugary is just not handling it as well as the other.

Hi, I am wondering if my plant has a wrong tag on it - purchased it at Giant food store in York PA. These tiny tomatoes are NOT sweet and are difficult to pull from the vine. VERY disappointing purchase. I would appreciate seeing documented photos of the plant. The foliage is very tight and curled down against the soil surface. thank you.

Hate to be the first negative but my family was just not impressed. Skin seemed tough and tomato lacked flavor. I am a heirloom tomato gal though so that might be the problem. Even 7-year-old passed these up for Sunsugars or yellow or red pears.

This plant stayed a manageable size while producing loads of grape-like pinkish tomatoes. The taste is great and very sweet. People I’ve given extras to love them and I start seeds for a few families and they always request this tomato. There is a little more cracking than the Santa variety I used to grow but can’t find anymore but I’m not the best at picking tomatoes when they’re most prone to cracking. This is listed as ‘semi-determinate’ by Tomato Growers Supply Co. and I did notice they stop producing before frost so I will stagger planting times a bit with this type this year.

Just love this sweet little tomato. It had very little cracking and it was so full of flavour. I will grow this one again. The fruits are more pink than red. It was quite prolific but took longer to ripen than most of my cherry varieties. Also, although indeterminate, it was a bit smaller than most of my other indeterminate varieties.

This is a 2005 AAS winner. Fruit is reddish pink that comes to a point on blossom end and sets in clusters. It held true to the descriptions that it is a vigorous vine and filled a large wire cage to overflowing. Flavor was sweet and it held true to being 'crack resistant' which is a problem with some cherry tomatoes.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Santa Clara, California
Elba, New York
Newark, New York
