Sungold Select II Tomato

This is a selection from the regular Sungold tomato, sent to us by Reinhard Kraft of Germany. This is one of the tastiest orange cherry tomatoes out there! This little cherry was the favorite of many of our staff last summer; we love the sweet tangy taste! This variety is not completely stable and a few plants still produced red fruit.

Review:

After reading all the hype about this tomato I had to try it out in my garden. I grew 5 plants of this (the plants came from seeds from 2 different sources) I grew the plants alongside a few sun sugar and black cherry tomato plants. Sun golds were good tasting but not as great as hyped. Personally I liked the sun sugars I grew slightly better and the black cherry tomatoes a lot better. The black cherries were actually just as sweet as the sungolds but with better overall flavor. Having limited space in my garden I will probably grow another grape or cherry tomato instead of sungold in the future. I won't advise against anyone growing this tomato because its not bad but I wouldn't give it a strong recommendation for taste.

Review:

I had put out a single plant of this variety in my new kitchen garden. Turns out the ol' Pecan tree made more shade in the area than I expected, but we still had a more than adequate output of these tasty orange tomatoes. Not as sweet as I hoped, but a really nice flavor with a hint of citrus for me. Amazing in salads. The plant looked good despite the shade and overran the top of a 6' cage. It is nearly time to add it to the burn pile with as cool as it's been, but I still manage to sneak a few off it every couple days. I will grow this again next year in a better spot.

Review:

My best producer in what was a tough, dry summer in 2010. When the drought had my other plants dropping blooms, this variety kept chugging along. Three plants kept my family of four in tomatoes even when the other varieties were wilting in the drought. It was also one of my hardiest varieties, still producing past the early cold snaps here. Fruit weren't the sweetest I've ever tasted in the cherry/grape type, but the flavor was still very good, being consistently bold and full throughout the whole season. Sweetness might return in better growing conditions, though. One out of every couple of fruit seemed to hint at that. Will grow again for sure.

Review:

Sungold select II provided loads of little orange tomatoes. They where so good they seldom made it to the table because we ate them as we picked them. I will plant these every year as one of my cherry tomatoes.

Review:

I planted both the sungold select this year along with some hybrid sungolds. The sungold select tomatoes are coming in as a mottled dark red-orange color when ripe, as opposed to the true orange color of the hybrid. And while they taste OK, they are not sungold sweet, but rather a much more acidic taste when compared to the hybrid. Frankly, the hybrid to my taste is a much better tasting tomato. Will certainly be growing sungolds again next year, but likely not these.
