Sun Sugar Tomato
These great little yellow cherry tomatoes, which are actually orange at peak flavor, will add color to salads and fresh pasta dishes, if they make to the table. They are so sweet that they might all get eaten in the meantime. Seriously.

Although called yellow cherry, these little tomatoes are orange at their peak, making almost more bite-sized bursts of sweetness than you can imagine on each plant. A single healthy plant is capable of producing hundreds. Several years ago, Sun Sugar was named by Sunset magazine as the best tasting tomato in their trials for its sweetness and rich tomato flavor that includes just the right amount of tartness. This disease-resistant plant is one of our very best cherry tomatoes and are easy to grow. The fruits are fantastic for salads or to just set out in bowls for snacking. Give the vines plenty of room; they can get 6 feet long or more and will bear through heat until frost, so give them a tall cage for support. Plants are resistant to fusarium wilt and tomato mosaic virus.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun Sugar Tomato Plant Zone 5 I brought this Plant from Lowe's and planted, this plant in a 5 gallon container. I planted this for my Granddaughter (18 Months) so she can see how a Tomato Plant grows. Tomatoes were very sweet, a nice size for her to pick, squeeze, eat and enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest tomato to grow This is our second year with this variety and the only problem I see is that they are a lot like zucchini---we already have way too many out of just two plants. Last year our plants were prolific way in to October (in Iowa).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cherry Tomato For the past three years, I have grown these so successfully that I have taken to cutting them in half and freezing them to sauté with a little bit of olive oil or butter and pouring them over chicken or turkey breasts. They add moisture and a wonderful sweetness to the meal. Last year I planted them between my rose bushes and amazingly my rose bushes loved being next to them. There is enough room for both along the south side of my house. The tomato plants seemed to eliminate the critters that usually visit my rose bushes each summer and this spring the rose bushes appear to be very hardy. Be sure to give them plenty of room to grow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where have these been most of my life! Just plant them. Good luck getting into the house with the fruit you have picked. If you do not like tomatoes you will love these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun Sugar Tomato This was our favorite tomato EVER. We grow dozens of different tomatoes in our small garden in Las Vegas, and last year this was the best!! Very disappointed that our nurserys didn't offer it this year. The plant we had grew over 8 ft high and was a big producer of the sweetest, best tasting cherry tomato we have ever grown. Enjoy!!!
