New Golden Grape Tomato

By Charlie Nardozzi, March 10, 2008


Grape tomatoes have become very popular in grocery stores and farmers' markets. They resemble cherry tomatoes but are more elongated, less watery, and thicker skinned. While most grape tomato varieties are red, a new variety features bright gold coloring.

The 'Solid Gold' hybrid grape tomato is an indeterminate plant that produces large clusters of up to 12 fruits 80 days after transplanting. Each 1-inch-diameter, crack-resistant, saffron-colored fruit has a sweet flavor that turns tangier as it ripens.
