Sun Gold Tomato

  • Light: Full sun
  • Fruit size: 1 ounce
  • Matures: 55 to 65 days
  • Plant spacing: 36 inches apart
  • Plant size: Up to 10 feet tall
  • Plant type: Indeterminate

Plant Sun Gold tomato, and you’ll be savoring fruits with explosively sweet flavor. This treat of a tomato is one of the garden’s sweetest. Children will eat them like candy. Sun Gold ripens in long clusters of 10 to 15 fruits. The sweet flavor is ready about a week before full coloring. Wait to pick fruits at their deepest hue and you’ll experience a richly sweet, fruity flavor. Eat fruits as a healthy snack, add to green salads, or mix into fruit salad.

Plants bear fruit well into fall and also make a great fall-planted crop in warm regions. If space is tight, try Sun Gold in containers–at least 24 inches in diameter to fit the big plant. You won’t be disappointed. Plants definitely need staking or tall cages; gardeners report this tomato to grow as tall as 10 feet. The indeterminate vines are resistant to many diseases: verticillium wilt (V), fusarium (F), and tobacco mosaic virus (TMV).

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Sun Gold Tomato is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL Sweet little Tomatoes I have purchased these for two years at Lowe's and they are as good as the sun sweet tomatoes. As long as Lowe's carries them I will purchase them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love These Little Gems Let me start out by saying I have never liked raw tomatoes, but ironically, it's my favorite garden vegetable to grow. For the last five years I've tried different varieties and never found one I liked until I started harvesting my Sun Gold tomatoes. They are so sweet and flavorful. I had one plant this year and it began producing slowly: enough to keep two of us in tomatoes for our lunches. At the end of the season, my plant is producing like gangbusters. I estimate it takes one plant to keep two people in tomatoes for the season. More if like me you like to throw these in salads, chilies, and curries. Next year I intend to plant several because I want more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best little tomato These are hard to come by in our parts, but I grew some two years ago and had enough to give away to neighbors from just a few plants. They are smaller than red cherry tomatoes and much sweeter. Another favorable feature is that their skins are relatively thin. This is an eating tomato, not something you would make sauce from or use in cooked dishes, except possibly atop a pizza. They were a treat and we loved them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Place in county fair Purchased 2 sun gold plants and 4 sun sugar plants from our local nursery. Plants were placed in 5 gallon containers, staked and height got to 5 feet on all plants. The sun sugar plants yield was phenonemal. Harvesting began in late June and we still have about 200 more to go now in mid August. Entered both varieties in the county fair this month. The sun gold got the blue ribbon and our sun sugars took 2nd place in the agricultural division

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed This is the first time I have grown these tomatoes and was looking forward to them because I love the yellow tomato. The plant is a high producer which is great but I'm having a hard time getting past the thick skin. I find myself chewing the skin for minutes after the meet of the tomato is gone. I don't know that I would grow these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I tried these last year, and was very happy. Despite limited light and limited spacing, these plants produced very tasty tomatoes. All plants with good yield.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sweet tomatoes with a great disease resistance ! These tomatoes are so sweet, make sure you grow at least two plants. One for picking for the salad, and the other for eating while you're picking them for the salad. Real sweet and very addicting !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most prolific tomatoes I usually grow. They also are the fastest growers since each year I grow then in an area where my neighbors huge lemon tree spills over into my yard over our 6 ft fence. Several years I find the tops of our sun golds climbing above this tree. I know this because I can see it from our second story and it still is above our heads.
