Sun Gold Tomato
Plant Sun Gold tomato, and you'll be savoring fruits with explosively sweet flavor. This treat of a tomato is one of the garden's sweetest. Children will eat them like candy. Sun Gold ripens in long clusters of 10 to 15 fruits. The sweet flavor is ready about a week before full coloring. Wait to pick fruits at their deepest hue and you'll experience a richly sweet, fruity flavor. Eat fruits as a healthy snack, add to green salads, or mix into fruit salad.
Plants bear fruit well into fall and also make a great fall-planted crop in warm regions. If space is tight, try Sun Gold in containers--at least 24 inches in diameter to fit the big plant. You won't be disappointed. Plants definitely need staking or tall cages; gardeners report this tomato to grow as tall as 10 feet. The indeterminate vines are resistant to many diseases: verticillium wilt (V), fusarium (F), and tobacco mosaic virus (TMV).
