Tomato Seed Planting Information:

Tomato plants should be grown in a warm areas and receive plenty of sunlight, so choose a sunny spot in your garden. Relocate your tomato plants in different parts of your garden each year to avoid diseases. Optimum temperatures for growing tomatoes are between 65 and 85 degrees F. Plant your seeds indoors 10 to 12 weeks before setting outside. Use Miracle Gro Seed Starting Material for best germination results. We have tested other Seed Starting Mix and experienced poor germination rates. You may have to special order the Miracle Gro Seed Starting Potting Mix from your nursery, as it is hard to find it at many of the large home and garden centers. Do not add any soil, fertilizers, and other chemicals to seed starting material! Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low germination when using these types of products. When seedlings are 4" tall, transplant them in larger pots. Plants should be at least 10" tall before transplanting outdoors. Place plants outdoors in shady area several days before transplanting outdoors. Shelter the transplants to prevent sunburn, wilting, and rain damage. Spring planting should occur when soil is warm, at least 3 weeks after last frost, and when temperatures remain above 70 degrees F. You can plant early if you use water towers. To prevent branches from breaking from the weight of tomatoes, use 5 to 6 ft tall cages. To tie plants to stakes, use soft strips of cloth. Check indeterminate plants regularly, and pinch off suckers and side branches where leaves join the stems. Plants can grow 1 to 6 ft tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply mulch and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant. Work the soil thoroughly before planting. Add well-rotted manure and compost.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells. Water in the morning only, on the side of the plants and not directly on the leaves.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.

Harvest Tips:

Harvest tomatoes when they are fully mature using a garden scissor so you don't damage the plant. Pick them as they mature to encourage new fruit to form. Remove any decayed tomatoes from the plant.

I planted sunsugar tomatoes started from a local greenhouse last year. I hate raw tomatoes but these I could eat and enjoyed it. They also sold like hotcakes at market. Prolific yields. Need to be staked or caged. Flimsy support will not withstand their size and mass. Produced fruit for over a month and a half.

I planted one of these tomato plants. This was by far the best flavored prolific tomato I have every had. We have a short growing season at 4,250 feet elevation in northern California.

Someone gave me 6 Sunsugar tomato plants and I am hooked. My family and neighbors have thoroughly enjoyed fruit from these plants for 3 months now, very long growing season here in Tennessee. Yummy !

For years I was planting many different cherry tomatoes as sweeter and more flavorful than larger varieties. SunSugar beats them all with exceptional taste and crack resistance. And it grows exceptionally well in colder but sunny climate of Northern Ontario - 8 ft tall, 3-stem plants by mid July, average 180 fruit per plant! Here requires just short-term frost protection in May and September. Truly excellent.

Amazing! These were the most delicious cherry tomatoes I have ever tasted! They grew very well in Seattle, WA. I couldn't eat them fast enough. It is sad that I am having problems finding them this year.

My wife and I grow sun sugar tomatoes all year here in southern California. The very best cherry tomato in our opinion. We grow many different varieties. Sun sugar is the one everyone LOVES. Grow some.

This will be my 3rd year of growing Sun Sugars. I start them from your seeds. I'm doubling my order this year so I can give away plants to new fans, and also have more tomatoes to give away (AND EAT!). They are delicious!

This is our second year growing these wonderful little tomatoes. They are delicious in salads, with cottage cheese or straight from the vine. You won't be disappointed - they taste great and the yield is heavy ! Everybody that taste them wants to know where they get some !

Best tomato plant I have grown. Like another reviewer, I rarely enjoy tomatoes straight from the vine - but these are great! Plants are dark green (beautiful with orange tomatoes) and are not too bushy yet produce very well (these are very efficient plants).
