Solanum lycopersicum

Details

One of the most popular cherry tomatoes, Sungold, ripens early to a golden orange, ready to harvest throughout the summer. These extra-sweet tomatoes stay firmer longer than other cherry varieties and will be ready to harvest twice a week once they begin producing fruit. These indeterminate tomatoes need at least one inch (2.5 cm) of water per week and prefer six hours or more of direct sun each day.

 

Culinary Uses

Tomatoes are a significant source of umami flavor. The tomato is consumed in diverse ways, raw or cooked, in many dishes, sauces, salads, and drinks. While tomatoes are botanically classified as berries, they are commonly used as a vegetable ingredient or side dish.
