“Big Sungold” is a variety I added to my “attempts to recreate Sun Gold (Sungold) F1 as an OP” collection. I really do love these varieties, and many people have worked very hard to bring us a variety with excellent flavor and the characteristics of Sun Gold F1. So now I have at least three of these to offer: Big Sungold, Wow! (Fedco Cherry), Sungold Select II, and possibly Santiam Sunrise. They are all sweet and delicious. Some smell and taste more strongly of beta carotene than others. To me, Santiam Sunrise is the sweetest, but the other three are not far behind. I believe that the fruits on Big Sungold are the largest of these four varieties.
Although it is not stated precisely in my research, Big Sungold appears to be the work of Reinhard Kraft and Manfred Hartmann, in Germany, shared sometime around 2005.
