This is my first season growing Mountain Golds. I just finished my first BLT with the first one, and it was great. They're yellow-orange and a bit small to medium, but they've handled the repetitive torrential rainfall this season better than just about any other kind I've planted. No rot, no splitting. Good tomatoes.

Good in sandy Florida ground with additives. Best for
less heat and sun, fall time best in my local. Best size
for me in ground was 6oz. Potting it in large container
produced a few +10oz sizes, great flavor. No real
blight problems in ground or pots

My Mountain Gold (from Tomato Growers Supply) looks nothing like Melody's. Mine are a brilliant yellow and are perfectly round. They are early July 8, and are the most beautiful yellow tomato I have ever grown. They weigh from 12 oz to 1 lb. The seed cavity is near the skin and there are few seeds. The fruit is mild, but very tasteful. I am saving seed and will report the results next year.

A fairly early tomato with a decent taste. It does not have the 'wow' factor, but it's an acceptable 'table tomato'.

It has a firm flesh, and would keep a decent amount of time, probably ship well too.

They are reasonably early enough that they make a nice presentation on a platter before the season gets into full swing.

I give it a B , but I'm very particular about my tomatoes.
