Tomato - Sungold F1 Hybrid
This is an excellent new cordon (indeterminate) tomato for glasshouse or outdoor culture to provide lots of deliciously different fruit for salads etc. Tomato Sungold has an exceptional and very high sugar content (it definitely rivals 'Gardeners Delight'). These attractive golden orange, approximately 13g fruit are irresistible with a sweet flavour all their own - almost a dessert fruit! Sungold crops well and has resistance to Tobacco Mosaic Virus and Fusarium to ensure healthy plants.
For greenhouse culture sow seeds late winter to early spring 1.5mm deep. Germination usually takes 6-14 days at 24-27C. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots and later plant out into growbags and pots 45-60cm apart. Outside, sow early spring and grow as above. When 20cm tall gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and remove side shoots as they appear, restricting the plant to one main stem. Remove growing tip late summer to hasten ripening.
