Buy tomato (standard) 'Golden Sunrise' tomato or Solanum lycopersicum'Golden Sunrise': Yellow fruits with a sweet and juicy flavour

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil

    A tomato the colour of sunshine that will make you smile every time you see it. The medium-sized fruits are generously produced on long trusses and have a rich, sweet and juicy flavour – said to be one of the best around. They ripen to a brilliant deep yellow, making a fabulous splash of colour sliced into salads.

  • Growing Instructions:Sow in a frost-free greenhouse or windowsill, potting on seedlings individually as they grow. Once all danger of frost has passed, plant into greenhouse borders or into growbags, or harden plants off and plant outside in rich soil in a sunny spot. Tie in to supports and pinch out side shoots: keep well-watered and feed weekly once flowers form. To ripen green fruits at the end of the season, cut plants away from supports, lay them on black polythene flat on the ground, and cover with a cloche to double the warmth.

  • Sow: January-March

  • Harvest:August-September

  • Approximate quantity: 75 seeds.

Sunrise sunrise - delicious


Wonderful variety: tasty, colorful not too demanding (though a sunny spot is better) and the plants are so healthy you can actually get loads of them with the seeds from a bunch of fruits for the following season.

Tasty - Have a go


I bought these last year and grew them with my Y5 class. Children were able to transplant seedlings once they grew up. They took some home and seemed to have success. Commented on taste when they came back after summer hols. Golden sunrise are slightly bigger than I expected but not too much. Bit more growing time. Plant inside soon to get the size of your plants up. Taste is excellent. Eat off plant, salad or roast (oil with a bit of salt at low-med heat).

Tomato trouble! Hi, Can you get blossom end rot on both ends of the tomato? Mine seem to be going soft at the joined end and then dropping off Thanks love Julie

Julie Losh

Hello Julie, Blossom end rot will only affect the bottom of the tomato, so I suspect yours are suffering from something else. They are prone to a number of things that will make the fruits rot, so I am not really sure what might be causing this with yours. I would remove all the damaged tomatoes as quickly as possible and keep an eye on the watering and air circulation. I'm sorry not to be more help. Helen Plant Doctor

Tomatoes not ripening? Hi there, I wonder if you can help. This year I am growing the tomato variety "Shirley" in the greenhouse. They are very healthy and laden with fruit, but they are not ripening. Regards. Kate

kate roberts

Hello Kate, There is something called Dry Set, which means the growth of the tomatoes stops when they are still very small. This is brought about by the air being too hot and dry when pollination is taking place, and the best way to cure this is to mist the plants with water twice a day - in the morning and evening.

If you do nothing else...water new plants. Make sure new additions do not suffer during dry spells. Plant up summer containers bedding once the threat of frosts has passed. Feed container plants about six weeks after planting. If it’s a nice day...trim he

Drying vegetables

You can dry all sorts of surplus veg from the garden. In fact I’d go so far as to say almost anything. That’s how they make vegetable crisps, you know. Beetroot are, they say, particularly good, though don’t bother with parsnips – it’s like eating bits of
