I grew Sungold last year, and tried Black Russian (a heritage variety), I also grew Tumbling tom, red and yellow varieties. Due to the pathetic amounts of sun, the black russian produced fist sized toms but hardly ripened, whereas the sungold and tumblers did very well. I'm thinking with the abysmal sun count we have had the last few years, to go for Sungella which are a cross between sungold and tigerella which supposedly produce 'golf-ball' sized fruits, perhaps finding the happy medium between size and ripening?
Anyone else tried these, and also any suggestions on varieties that grow fruits about the size of a golf ball?
Thanks in advance
