Sungolds falling off! Why?

tomatotomataJuly 19, 2012

I have 2 Sungolds, and both are dropping ripe fruit like crazy. They taste fine but why is this happening? What causes this?

TT, all ripe fruit will eventually fall. Are you waiting too long to pick them?

If you wait they fall of very easily. Mine do this.

Yep, waiting too long. When they are ripe they still stay on the vine but can be plucked off easily. Just past that stage they will fall off, but may still taste fine.

For all that fall off, I have yet to get a volunteer.
