Sweet, tart, and perfectly delicious, Sun Gold cherry tomatoes are a joy to grow! An abundance of golden-orange, 1” fruit grows in bunches on the plant, and is ready for harvest just 65 days after seeds are started. The flavor of these cherry tomatoes develops earlier than most, so can be harvested early depending on your preference for taste. They are a great snacking tomato, and are also great in salads, quiches, sauces, and casseroles. Sun gold cherry tomatoes are an indeterminate tomato variety, so they bear fruit all season long.

Sun Gold cherry tomatoes produce golden-orange fruit that is sweet and tart. Tomato foliage is toxic and should not be consumed. Pruning is not necessary unless you are growing on stakes. Store at room temperature or in a cool room, avoid refrigeration.

Sungold Cherry Tomato Plant Care

Cherry tomatoes are warm-season vegetables that can be damaged by frost. Wait until after your last frost to plant your seedlings outside. Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before your last frost. Plant into a compost-enriched, mulched garden bed that gets full sun. Add a tomato cage or support structure after planting. No pruning is necessary unless you are growing on stakes. If growing on a stake, prune back to one or two main stems and continue to prune back any suckers or additional stems. Harvest all near-ripe fruit before your first frost and allow to ripen in newspaper or paper bags at room temperature.

Growing Sungold Cherry Tomato Plants

Sun Gold Cherry tomatoes require full sun and moist soil to thrive. They need plenty of room to grow, so plant them 3-4’ apart. Start them indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost and transplant them outdoors after your last frost date.

If growing in a container, make sure it is at least 18” wide. Keep the soil consistently moist and fertilize every other month. Use a tomato cage or structure to support the branches and fruit.

Watering Sungold Cherry Tomatoes

Keep your cherry tomatoes evenly watered throughout the growing season. Additional irrigation in dry spells will likely be necessary.

Feeding Sungold Cherry Tomato Plants

Fertilize once or twice in the growing season with vegetable fertilizer. Feeding the seedlings is not necessary, but can be done with a starter solution at 3-4 weeks old.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
