Next in my series on tomato seeds varieties is Sungold.
Sungold was Joint 2nd Favourite Tomato along with Shirley. Of the 23 seed sites I searched it could be bought from 12.
This is what the seed suppliers had to say:
To eat, Sungold is:
- High sugar content, very high sugar content, one of the sweetest you can grow, extra sweet, delicious
- Small, 13g fruit, cherry type
- Orange, golden orange, rich orange, golden,bright orange
- Thin skinned
To Grow, Sungold is:
- Cordon Interderminate
- Glasshouse or outdoors
- Extremely productive, early summer to late autumn, heavy cropper
- Resistant to TMV and FUs
- Long heavy trusses, heavily laden,large cascading trusses
- Vigorous habit
- Height 250cm, Spread 60cm
To buy Sungold:
Available packet size tended to be between 10 and 30 seeds. Average seed priced worked out at 16 pence per seed. But again with variations. For example you can buy 10 seeds from one supplier for £2.95 and 30 seeds from another for the same price.
Is Sungold one of your summer favourites?
