Most yellow cherry tomatoes are grown mainly for their color not taste, but Sweet Gold has both full, sweet tomato flavor and jewel-toned golden yellow fruits. These glossy 1" cherries are delicious eaten right from the vine, enjoyed for snacks, or for adorning summer salads and stirfries. The vigorous indeterminate vines grow effortlessly, start bearing early and reliably produce heavy clusters of these brightly colored, tasty little fruits throughout the summer.

Planting & Care
Planting: Start indoors about 6 - 8 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 55° range. Sow seeds 1/4" deep and 1" apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm (80°F). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside. When they are 2" tall, transplant into 4" pots, burying stems up to the base of the leaves. Maintain around 70°F. Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Transplant these vigorous indeterminate climbers 3' apart into rich soil in full sun.
Growing: Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant tomatoes several inches deeper than they were growing in pots. Provide strong stakes or tall wire cages at planting time as plants grow tall with heavy fruit loads. Mulch to provide the even moisture that prevents cracking. Don't overwater once fruit begins to ripen.
Harvest & Use: Pick fruits when fully golden yellow for best flavor. Enjoy for sweet snacks right out of the garden, in salads or stuffed with herbed cream cheese. For a delicious side dish, briefly sauté Sweet Gold in a garlicky olive oil, then sprinkle with chopped fresh chives and basil.
