Sungold Tomato (F1 Hybrid, 60 Days)

24

Great "tomatoey" flavor and very sweet, an 8 on the brix scale. Fruits are nearly 1 inch round globes which turn a very attractive golden orange when ripe. Productive vines provide very high yields. A customer favorite! 

15 seeds

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after last frost. 

Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

tasty!

These are the tastiest cherry tomatoes ever. I grow them in cages but even so, they are very rangy. They tend to crack but are still worth it!

Lacks flavor

I grew this variety in a 5 gal grow bag, single staked on a 6 ft bamboo. It outgrew the bamboo stake and I had to top it off. Very pretty and uniform fruit and but I was disappointed in its flavor. These taste bland to me, neither tomatoey or sweet. I'll grow them again next year since everyone else seems to love it and claim they taste like candy. I'm hoping it was an user error and that next year I will get crazy sweet tomatoes.

Flavor is incredible

The flavor of these tomatoes is incredible. It's INTENSE! Very sweet, a little acidic, very tomato-y! I haven't had any trouble with splitting, as others have mentioned, but I only have a couple plants in pots on my patio, and I eat these straight off the vine as fast as they ripen. If I could only grow one tomato variety, I'd grow these. Highly recommend!

Always first to the party!

Sungolds are so easy-going! They don't need thinning, they set fruit early, and they don't fall easily to disease. I only wish they were easier to keep for winter. But there's little wrong with being forced to eat hundreds in the summer...like sun-drenched candy!
