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.

What are the pros? Less Cracking, Great taste

What are the cons? N/A

Review:

I purchased these seeds because I've grown Sungolds for several years and like them for "off the vine" eating. The flavor is superb--sweet enough for the American palate ;-). I didn't even notice the "II" in the plant name until I saw the package when planting them. This has been a great tomato year in our area, with regular, timely rain. Unlike in past years, when I planted plain old "Sungold" (without the II) there has been almost no cracking. Perhaps this is the improvement? The skins seem to be slightly thicker than I recall from previous years. Same great taste, same abundant crop requiring daily harvesting. With the exception of Sungolds, I plant only heirlooms, so these were the first to ripen by about 10 days. I expect they'll keep on until mid-September. I grow them both in containers and in the field, staked and unstaked. If you can only do a container tomato, this one will not let you down.

Review:

These tomatoes are every bit as pretty and delicious as their hybrid counterparts. They were the first to ripen in the garden, in spite of a late frost that delayed planting and a prolonged period over 100. They seem to thrive in the heat- they didn't miss a beat in the extreme heat when other tomatoes were dropping blossoms and failing to ripen. I also pruned fairly heavily early on and now have a 5' plant that has as many blossoms (and tomatoes) as it does foliage. If they all turn into tomatoes (which I suspect they will) I am going to have an outrageous bounty from one plant. I highly recommend- this is a hardy, prolific plant that produces sweet, perfectly-sized cherry tomatoes in abundance. I'll be saving seeds for next year and as gifts for friends.

Review:

It is hard to find open-pollinated sun golds, so I was happy to find them at Baker Creek. This is an easy to grow cherry, that produces larger-then-average fruit. Plants are robust, tall, and healthy. Fruiting is prolific, and while not the first cherry to ripen in my garden, was a close second. The taste is wonderful, though skins are a little thick. One benefit of this is that I haven't found a single split sun gold on my 3 plants, as compared to some other cherries where splitting of fruit is common-place. I have already saved seeds to plant this in my garden next year.

Review:

I live in Ohio on Lake Erie. I started these indoors in March and mid April I had to go out of town so I put these in the ground earlier than I should have. We had several nights that got down to the low 40s well through May. These little guys started getting very thick stems and made it through, while some of the other varieties I planted couldn't handle it. They started producing and ripening quickly and has several stages of growth. It is now August first and I still have many green and more ripening everyday, but the plant is starting to brown. Great taste and beautiful color!

What are the pros? Disease resistant, early

What are the cons? Not quite Sungold

Review:

I grew a single Sungold Select II last year next to a conventional hybrid F1 Sungold. For those who are unaware, many tomato growers have been trying to create an open-pollinated version of Sungold with, generally, little success. My plant grew true, with little orange globes on long trusses. The fruit was tasty, but in a side-by-side comparison it just didn't stack up to its parent. It's less sweet and softer. The foliage didn't have that distinctive "Sungold" smell (a musky, hippie-esque smell, if you catch my drift) and the OP plant wasn't nearly as productive as the hybrid. That said, it's a decent dupe and has many of Sungold's great qualities like disease resistance. If you have a huge garden, I'd say the cost-savings of being able to save seed from Sungold Select II out is worth the slightly inferior taste/production. As for me, with my little urban space, a single packet of Sungold F1 lasts me years, so I'll stick with that until Kraft releases a new strain.
