Tomato ‘Sungold’

Family: Solanaceae

‘Sungold’ is an F1 Tomato hybrid that was bred and developed by the Tokita Seed Company, in Japan.  Released in the early 1990s, ‘Sungold’ is a deservedly popular and much loved tomato.  This is the favourite tomato cultivar of gardeners who live in many different countries, including the UK and America.  ‘Sungold’ is a sunshine orange coloured cherry tomato, with a super sweet, tangy flavour.

In addition to producing great tasting tomatoes, ‘Sungold’ plants have a resistance to Tomato Mosaic Virus and to Fusarium Wilt.

An indeterminate tomato or cordon tomato, ‘Sungold’ tomatoes are grown on one main stem, which is trained upwards, while the sideshoots are removed to encourage fruit production.  Plants will need a sturdy support frame, as this is a productive tomato.

‘Sungold’ tomato plants produce anywhere from ten to twenty cherry tomatoes, in a single truss, and up to fifty, perhaps more, cherry tomatoes on a larger, branching truss.

This tomato is known for its exceptional flavour, it’s similar to tomato ‘Honeycomb’.  ‘Sungold’ tomatoes are delicious eaten raw or cooked.  If you’re interested in growing tomatoes, you’ll find more detailed articles about growing tomatoes (including my Tomato Trials), here.
