I don't think a Sungold Tomato, even if it is 10' tall, should produce so many tomatoes every day. A person just can't eat that many tomatoes! Shocked   But, I do love those sweet Sungold tomatoes!

I planted a few Sungolds a few weeks ago.  There are tomatoes setting on now.  I have only ever planted red/pink tomatoes.  So how do you tell when these are ready to harvest??????

I like to halve and dry my excess Sungolds.  THey are kind of like golden raisins and very good in curry/ rice dishes.

Yolo, when they are a lemon yellow start trying them till you find the color you like the flavor best at.  I like them best a golden orange with no lemon yellow color, but all is good.  They can have problems with splitting, so I eat those when picking. Very Happy

See those orange-colored ones, like the one that split open after it was picked?  Those are fully ripe, and unbelievably sweet. You will see some of them that are a little green, or light yellow in the bowl - those are in the ripening process and will finish ripening in 1 to 2 days.  Eat or use the deepest orange ones first, while the others are still ripening.

Turan and OG, thanks for your responses.  There are hundreds of green ones on the four plants now so I should get some ripe ones before our average first frost of about Oct 28.  This is just a trial to see if I should add them to my grow list.

Turan, Once you dry the halved Sun Gold tomatoes, how do you preserve/store them.

Post  countrynaturals on 9/24/2019, 12:59 pm

All of my tomatoes are in containers. I read an article from another thread that recommended containers being half-barrel size. affraid I don't have room for anything like that. In fact, my largest containers (probably 15 gal.) are producing less than my 5 gal. containers. My 4th of July -- most productive of all -- is in a 5 gal. pot.

If the larger varieties require more space, I'm cooked, cuz my brandywine and beefsteak can only have 5 gal. pots, since they have to come inside for the winter, and I don't have room inside for anything larger. Anybody have success with large maters in small containers?

CN, 5-gallon buckets are just fine if you use Mel's Mix and top off with more compost during the long season.

thankyou Fingers crossed I can get big maters by planting late. If not, I'll start again on New Year's Day and try it the other way by planting super early.

Speaking of "big maters", I'm still getting these big, green things on one of my cherry tomato plants. I think it's the sungold. The last one just rotted. We'll see what happens with these. crazy!

My Sungolds have started maturing.  But every one that turned orange was also split.  I think they do not like the +95*f days.  But they are delicious and they are setting fruit even in this heat.  I am going to add them to my grow list next year.  But I have now started harvesting before they fully matured so they would not split.  I will have to wait a few days to see if they taste as good if picked when they first blush.
