Sungold Cherry Tomato

65 days. This exquisite cherry Tomato ripens from green to golden, but wait! Sungold isn't fully mature until, at the last minute, it becomes pale apricot-orange. Watch for the subtle color change, then savor the intensified taste: uniquely rich and sugary, with a hint of tropical fruit. Round, 1"-wide Tomatoes attached to draping, symmetrical, limb-like, 3" trusses are borne on indeterminate vines. It may be a bit slow at first, but it yields reliably non-stop until the frost. A hands-down taste test winner, Sungold is elegant in salads, although most never make it to the kitchen. They're like candy. VFN TMV. (F1.)

Absolutely nothing compares to eating a sun-warmed, homegrown Tomato straight off the vine. This garden mainstay is easily grown and most rewarding. Start seed in a warm, bright, well-ventilated area six to eight weeks before setting out. Transplant out after the last spring frost date. To encourage stockiness, sink seedlings deeper into the well-enriched soil than you grew them - soil should cover the lowest layer of leaves. Position stakes, cages or supports at that time to avoid disturbing the plants later on. Keep soil evenly moist and well-fertilized. Once harvested, store Tomatoes at room temperature, as anything below 50°F destroys the enzyme that gives Tomatoes their flavor. When a variety is said to have determinate vines, it means that the vines top out and all of the fruit ripens at once. When a variety is said to have indeterminate vines, it means that the vines keep growing and bearing fruit until a killing frost. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 2 years.
