Gardeners' Notes:

'Golden Sunray' is sweet, solid, and meaty with a very mild in flavor. Good fusarium resistance. It is a stabilized cross between 'Pan American' and 'Jubilee'. Developed by Dr. W. S. Porte at the Beltsville, Maryland Station and released in 1950.

I grew this plant from seed, and it's another great tomato from the Ben Quisenberry. Golden-yellow fruits are uniform and virtually blemish-free. Sturdy productive 4' vines. Excellent full tomato flavor. Our finest yellow tomatoes. Indeterminate, 80-90 days from transplant.

I really like the flavour and I found it to be disease resistant compared to others in my garden. It is a late ripener, but worth the wait.
