Sungold F1

The little tomato with a big reputation, it is always on the top of most “my favorite tomato” lists. I don’t grow too many hybrids, but this is one I grow every year. And as they are rarely found in big box garden centers, I decided to make them available to you. A bright orange cherry, it has the most incredible flavor – very sweet yet tangy, fruity and very addictive. Cooking Light magazine describes Sungold's taste as a balance of citrusy tartness and sweetness, with other hints of grape and floral flavors. The plants get pretty big and are very productive over a long season. Fruit are little ½ oz globes on trusses of about 10. Most of ours tend to be eaten fresh (out in the garden J) but they do make an awesome sauce and wonderful dried tomatoes. They are one of the earliest cherry tomatoes. They do have a tendency to crack because of their tender skin, so pick before rain, don’t over water, and keep up on the picking.
