Tomato, Sungold

Sale price Price $7.00 Regular price $6.00

The ideal snacking cherry tomatoes are bright orange and super sweet! Sungolds are a hybrid so their seeds can't be replanted and expected to perform the way their parents do, but don’t let this stop you! They have exceptionally sweet flavor and while I'm sure they would taste great cooked into a sauce, they rarely make it all the way to the kitchen without being eaten! Sungolds are disease resistant and produce consistently all season long right up to a good firm frost. Remember to stake them well as they can grow tremendously tall.

Tomato: Truly a classic garden vegetable! There is nothing like a fresh, vine-ripened garden tomato. Tomatoes are a native to North America but have woven themselves throughout western cuisine. There are varieties specialized for almost any use you can have of them. From cherries to plum to sauce to slicing to beefsteak tomatoes there is a tomato that is right for you!

Growing Tips: Tomatoes can get quite large so give them a good 24 inches of space in the garden in order to make sure they enough light and air flow around them to stay healthy. They also like a good strong trellis to support the plant and help give them that light and air flow as well as keep their fruit clean. Tomatoes are also good feeders. Give them a healthy dose of compost before planting and nice deep mulch at planting.
