Don't miss Sun Gold tomatoes at their peak.

Know how you can't eat just one grape? Bite-size, bumblebee-yellow Sun Gold tomatoes are the same way, so sweet and juicy they remind you that tomatoes are indeed fruits. Find them at farmers markets, or grow your own for garden-fresh treats that'll turn picky treats that'll turn picky kids into tomato fans and adults into fiends. "Sun Gold's are amazingly easy to grow," Executive Editor Ann Taylor Pittman says. "You don't even need garden space; a larger planter in a sunny spot works great."

We use young heirloom Cherokee Purple tomatoes to balance the intense sweetness of Sun Golds with a little acid and umami depth, but other red cherry tomatoes will work well also.
