The last of my cherry tomato crop, Sun Gold.
Sun Gold is a hybrid packed full of sweetness and flavor. My husband would take them to work to share at lunch. Every evening he’d brag to me about how much the guys love my cherry tomatoes. My tomato plant was a gift from friend and Master Gardener Colleen Machado who grows and sells mostly heirloom tomatoes. Thanks, Colleen for sharing such a sweet treasure.
