How consistent are Sungolds?
I went to the farmers market this past weekend to buy some extra sungolds because my room mates are so efficient at cleaning off my plant. Interestingly, I noticed that the tomatoes I got from the FM were about 25-50% bigger than the ones coming from my plant, and were just a touch less sweet (still absolutely delicious). Does this variation have anything to do with the fact that the Sungold is a hybrid, or is it more likely a result of environmental differences?
By the way, if any of you are out there even THINKING about buying a sungold...just do it. Mine has been setting fruit in 95+ degree heat up against a brick wall no less, and is over 7' tall, even though I planted a 6" plant at the end of April. I've already pulled at least 100 fruits, and it has 200-300 more still on.
