Sunsugar Cherry Tomato
This year I was lucky enough to tour the Stokes seed trial gardens and get my hands on some of these decidedly delicious, yellow/orange cherry tomatoes. As someone who normally prefers red tomatoes I sampled this tiny treat while passing by a rather vigorous, large tomato plant. It was love at first taste. I was taken aback by the extremely sweet and flavorful pop in my mouth. I simply could not resist them and found any variety of excuse to pass by the row of these delectable nightshade fruits again and again! I swore that they would grace my garden from now until forever and that I would erect a fence to keep my children away (I’ve tried this before but with poor results at best!).
Ok Ok I may be taking this to far but in all seriousness I’m entirely impressed. These large indeterminate tomato plants are disease resistant and bear fruit over a long season. They are incredibly sweet yet still bear a pleasant tomato flavor. They are a nice size not exceeding an inch across and are packaged in a wonderfully thin skin. Despite this thin skin they are reportedly crack resistant and through a thorough search and destroy researched based approach that claim seemed to hold true, further research pending. On top of this you are likely going to get a yield you can count by hundreds!
A must have for any cherry tomato loving gardeners or gardeners with young children in the family. When you see these in the garden center don’t hesitate to pick one up, there is very little chance of disappointment!
