About Sugar Drop

Sugar Drop is the end result of the dehybridization of a yellow cherry tomato accomplished by tracking traits associated with genes from the presumed wild parent of that hybrid. Stabilized by J&L Gardens Seed. Introduced commercially by J&L Gardens Seed in 2013. Indeterminate, 8′ tall, vigorous, regular leaf plant produces a great production of 5/8″ long, dusky gold, very sweet, (May be the sweetest and finest yellow cherry on the market.) cherry tomatoes with a slight point at the tip. Even the foliage is sweetly scented, a trait passed down from its wild ancestors and related to the remarkable sucrose sugar accumulation in the fruit.

    The sugardrop tomatoes I bought in supermarket are red. I've set seed to see if they grow true. Kent UK

      Hi Ann, yes, there is a red-fruited cherry tomato sold in supermarkets under the same name.

      I’ve just had the same red ones from Morrisons in the UK. They are really sweet! Too late for me to plant this year but I’m going to save some seeds for next year instead/as well as my regular Sungolds.
      Please come back and let us know if they breed true.

        I bought some from Morrisons this weekend too – they're the sweetest and tastiest tomatoes I've eaten for a long time! I'm going to save a couple for seed and do the same as you.
