Sugary. The name says it all. Judges raved about the sweet tomato flavor. The half-ounce dark pink fruit has a sugar content of 9.5%, higher than most others. The fruit is produced in clusters like grapes and can be eaten like them. Sugary tomatoes have a distinct shape; they are oval with a pointed blossom end. In addition to the flavor, Sugary plants produced a high yield with a noticeable lack of cracked fruit. Look for ripe fruit on the strong semi-indeterminate vines within 60 days from transplanting into warm, prepared garden soil or large containers. Plants are vigorous and may need pruning to contain growth. Sugary should set a new standard for cherry size tomatoes with sweet flavor.
