More Details

Two of the best varieties with great flavour. Tomato 'Sungold' produces small, golden yellow-orange tomatoes with the sweetest flavour of any I know. 'Noire de Crimee' is an extraordinary, crimson-skinned Russian tomato with incredible flavour and a firm yet juicy texture. Harvest according to feeling for ripeness, not the skin colour, as this can be misleading.

Genus Lycopersicon lycopersicum
Variety Noire de Crimée', Sungold
Common Name Tomato
Soil Type Fertile
Site Full Sun
Moisture Well-drained
Height 1.5-2m (5ft-6ft 5in)

Care Tips Under cover or outside they need staking, and regular watering and feeding for best results. Need trimming and support, pinch out the tops once they have set 5 or 6 trusses. While still small, you also need to pinch out the side shoots. Water regularly to prevent splitting
Storing Tomatoes can be kept at room temperature for 4-5 days (they will lose their flavour if kept in the fridge), and will freeze well.

The sungold were fabulous, prolific and flavoursome. The noire de Crimee were a waste of money. Style over substance. Utterly tasteless and not worth planting.

Again plants packed extremely well, and all the plants performed well, the Noire de Crimee tomato plants I hadn't grown before but I would grow them again

I loved the idea of these tomatoes, but in the end I think I prefer the smaller ones which are easier to get ripe evenly rather than the problem of one side the the fruit being red and the other green. This might be a reflection of my skills as a gardener. Would have liked to know which seedling was which variety.

These tomatoes have been excellent - the flavour and the amount harvested (they are still going) was great.

The Noire de Crimee produced fab tasting toms despite their ugly appeance, reminiscent of Mediterranean holiday toms. The sun gold are still producing sweet toms and I expect they will for a few more weeks. All this despite the hot summer.

As I live on my own, I only need a few tomato plants but it's nice to have more than one variety so this collection is perfect. The Noire de Crimee did brilliantly this year, love it!
