Sungold tomato is an extra sweet cherry type which produces many heavily laden trusses of rich orange, highly tasty fruit, from early summer to late autumn. It has the added benefit of being able to grow inside or out and has a good disease resistance to Fusarium and TMV(tobacco mosaic virus). This cordon type tomato has an exceptionally high sugar content which makes it ideally delicious for salads.

Pack Size: 10 Seeds

WHEN TO SOW
January to April

Where to Sow
Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C .

What to do next
Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.

MATURITY
July to October

HANDY TIP
Pick fruits as they ripen and water regularly, but do not over water to help prevent the fruits from splitting.
