You should have put a picture of those amazing Sungold tomatoes, mick.


They were absolutely delicious and, as I said they would be, they were gone by the time we got home

You're preaching to the converted here Tommo! Sungold have been my favourite tom since I first came across them quite a few years ago by now. In my opinion they're in a class of their own (popular varieties like Gardener's Delight don't even come close). Some say they're too sweet - is there such a thing when it comes to fruit?

As you may recall from an old post of mine, they also come almost identically true to their parent seed - which is odd as they are sold as F1 hybrids, I guess the two parent strains must be very similar. I discovered that when a few 'feral' seedlings that had found their way into some crevices in my polytunnel, got transplanted back into captivity by moi! They turned out almost identical in every way to that year's new crop of Sungold. In fact you could hardly tell them apart, except that the feral ones seemed to be a fraction larger. The taste was identical.

I'm wondering if your 'wild cherry' toms are a product of some thrown up genetics from an F1 hybrid somewhere along the line Tommo. I hope they continue to come true for you. Maybe a little injection of Sungold genes would be an interesting experiment somewhere down the line.
