An orange Tomato that has a very thin skin and a high sugar content.

Availability

Sun Sugar Tomatoes are available year round.

Purchasing

The best Sun Sugar Tomatoes to purchase are those that have rich, deep oranges. Sun Sugar Tomatoes you purchase should be well shaped, smooth skinned and without wrinkles, cracks, bruises, or soft spots. A puffy appearance is not desirable either, as it often signifies a subpar flavor.

When a Sun Sugar Tomato is ripe it will yield to slight pressure and will have a slightly sweet fragrance.

Storage

Sun Sugar Tomatoes are best kept refrigerated. Depending on their ripeness when purchased, Sun Sugar Tomatoes can last a week or more in the refrigerator. Ripe Sun Sugar Tomatoes should be used within a day or two for the best tasting dishes and the maximum absorption of vitamins from the fruit.

Sun Sugar Tomatoes will freeze well and can be stored frozen for 8-12 months.

Culinary Uses

Sun Sugar Tomatoes are considered best used whole and fresh.

Portion Size

Allow 2-4 Sun Sugar Tomatoes per person.
