A popular variety producing very sweet, gold-coloured tomatoes over a long season.

Solanum lycopersicum

Hybrid.  A modern day classic that has been a firm favourite of gardeners for years. The fruit are small and round, measuring up to 30mm in diameter. They ripen to a bright orange, and have a juicy, sweet flesh. The only downside is that the fruit have a tendency to split when over-ripe.

Sungold is one of the earliest tomato varieties to ripen, and plants continue producing well into the autumn.  If you fancy growing tomatoes outdoors, this is a good variety to try.

Indeterminate (cordon) growth habit

Approximate number of seeds per pack: 10
