‘Golden Sunrise’ is a tomato cultivar that produces medium-sized, golden yellow salad (these are larger than cherry tomatoes, but smaller than beefsteaks) tomatoes. This variety is best grown as a cordon (intermediate) tomato, where the plant’s sideshoots are removed and the plant is strengthened by a strong and sturdy support system. When growing these types of tomatoes, it’s important that the cordon-trained tomato plant’s sideshoots are removed at regular intervals, so the plant’s energy is channeled towards producing more tomatoes and not just new stems and leaves.
Seeds can be sown from February to April. Tomato seeds need to be started off undercover, in containers of peat-free compost, inside the warmth and protection of a glasshouse or conservatory. Once all risk of frost has passed, ‘Golden Sunrise’ tomatoes can be planted outside or grown in containers outdoors. However, if you prefer, ‘Golden Sunrise’ tomatoes can spend their whole life growing inside a glasshouse or polytunnel.
If you don’t have a glasshouse, don’t worry, tomato seeds can also be started off on a window sill. Choose your brightest windowsill and sow your tomato seeds from March to the end of April, in containers of peat-free compost.
Tomatoes flourish in a bright and sunny location. Avoid wet and waterlogged soils. If you’re interested in growing tomatoes, you’ll find more detailed articles about growing tomatoes (including my Tomato Trials), here.
