Beautiful, plump, tangerine colored fruits are quite simply, very sweet and juicy! Provide support for vigorous vines that easily reach 6-feet long. Allow tomatoes to fully ripen for optimum flavor; fruits should almost fall off the vine when ready. Not found in grocery stores, Sun Gold is a special treat at the peak of flavor from your garden.

This packet yields approximately 8 plants when started indoors.

5-10 days

Seed Depth:
1/8”

A group of
3 seeds
every 24"

3’

When to sow outside: Recommended for mild winter climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 60°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when fully colored and firm. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of green tomatoes near the end of the season, and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
