Osborne was shipping to Canada a couple of years ago, but I have not chatted with them recently.

For me in Zone 3a SunOrange fruits much earlier than SunGold.

I'd like to encourage you all to save seeds from the more expensive hybrids similar to SunGold F1. Although they're not true-to-type, there's considerable interest in stabilizing SunGold—but I understand that Sungold has resisted these attempts pretty well (although we have had some cool new varieties come from it). Maybe such as SunOrange would be easier.

Stabilizing hybrids aside, if you're in the USA, I'd be interested in any F2s you might have to offer some day.

I plan on growing all the SunSeries I own in the '19-20 and will save F2 seeds for you.

I did grow out a SunGold Volunteer one year and fed it, treated it like an F1. It looked the same, it smelled the same, the difference was the texture of the skin. That was when I realized that I like these hybrids because I don't notice the skin.

Barb_Fl Wow. Thanks! You're awesome!

Big Sungold Select didn't have significant skin when I grew it, but it wasn't that sweet either, and it was a firm tomato (although I liked it).
