orange cherries

fultonFebruary 5, 2012

I need to narrow my orange cherry tomato candidates from 4 to 2. They are Sungold, Sunsugar, Golden Gem and Sweet Gold.

Any and all input would be appreciated.

Sungold for sure. Never grown any of the others - your choice.

sungold is the ultimate. Unless you are hard up for space. The fruits are small but the plants are not.

Some anti-hybrid people (like me) grow Sungold as it is generally considered the sweetest cherry ever.
It's the only hybrid *I* grow as well. The plant is HUGE and the fruits are notorious for cracking, but we still grow it. It's that good and a GREAT seller at the farmer's market. I've heard good reviews for Sunsugar as well. I grew Sungold Select (an OP) last year & it was good but not as good. Whenever there's a "best cherry?" poll the top cherries are usually Black Cherry & Sungold.

People recommend SunGold if they haven't tried SunSugar. Thinner skin, less cracking and splitting, and more resistant to late blight. Tons of tomatoes, sweet and early. What's not to love? Huge plant, though. Be prepared. 8-0
