Gardeners' Notes:

Sunny Boy is a medium-sized yellow-golden fruit. For me, it was a average producer, at best. However, the fruit were beautiful and the flavor was above average. But be advised that a bright yellow fruit is not yet ripe, but rather, is fully ripe when golden ... and is more flavorful at that stage. Notte that Sunny Boy was my first plant with blight.

As described by Seeds by Design: "Bright yellow 6 ounce fruits with few seeds. Very sweet flavor, fruits are globe shaped and firm plus will ship well. Determinate plants sets well in many conditions."
