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 at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.

Sun Gold Tomato is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First off, the flavor of these tomatoes was unbelievably good! My family loved how sweet they were. The bad thing about these was the yield. We would get nice clusters of 10-15 fruit all over the plants but we could only get the first 3-4 tomatoes on the cluster to change over in color from green to orange/yellow. The rest of each cluster would stay green and never ripen. These were planted in 5 gallon containers, one plant per container. We aren't sure if this is why the low percentages. We were very disappointed in them and will not waste another season trying to grow them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This little gem was quite a surprise! I planted one plant just to try it; it started yielding early and continued blooming even after our first frost in October. My only difficulty was that it grew to just under 14 feet tall! I had to extend my cages twice and was picking from an 8 foot tall step ladder. I am over 6 feet tall and had to carefully stretch to reach the top tomatoes. One plant supplied all the salad tomatoes for two families and everyone loved the flavor. I will buy again if I can locate one in 2016.

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 I just thought I would try these for the color and they are the tomato I have always searched for! THE sweetness winner. Not bitter at all! I love serving them to guests too! Perfect cherry tomatoes!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We call them 'poppers' because one just takes a handful and pops one or two into the mouth at a time. They have the most tomatoey taste we have ever encountered in ANY tomato. Did not see them at HomeDepot this week so hope to get one at WalMart when they get the rest of their Bonnie plants in. Did find a nice Rosemary at WalMart tho. Fresh Rosemary and Thyme on a pork roast are fantastic.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun Golds are small but mighty when it comes to taste in the tomato world. They have the most tomato taste of any tomato ever produced. We call them 'poppers' as we just take a handful and pop a couple in to eat at a time. Oh, soo yummy and generally sufficient production to share with friends too. Sure hope to find another for this year!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was my first year planting Sun Gold. I only planted one plant. I was delighted with the results. Huge harvest on only one plant. The taste is sweet with just the right amount of acid. I almost need a ladder to harvest on the tips of the stems. I will plant again next year.
