7. Sungold is still my "gold standard" in the category.
For a sweet, fruity cherry tomato, I still haven't found any other varieties that are superior. There is a slightly larger version called Sun Sugar that is the same flavor, just a little bigger fruit, that is its equal.
8. I've tried them all - Golden Gem, Sun Sugar, etc are all "improvements"
on Sungold (so they say), but I've found that what you get is a bit less tendency to crack, a very similar flavor, and much more expensive seed.
I've also tried "dehybridizing" Sungold (as have many others) - you never quite get the unique Sungold flavor in the offspring, though some are close (a fellow in Germany has worked on this and the result is Sungold Select II - quite good, and the advantage of being able to save seeds from it and get the same thing the following year).
But yes, Sungold has no equal, really, in quality.
