Sungolds falling off! Why?

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?

RE: Sungolds falling off! Why?

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

RE: Sungolds falling off! Why?

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.

RE: Sungolds falling off! Why?

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