I tried to sell Sun Gold in clusters but handling was a problem, fruit fall off too easy,
if I do it again someday I will cut the cluster at mature green and barn ripe, this should
allow fruit to holdup better and will prevent cracks, I believe Sungold to be the best
tasteing tomato in the world but they love to split ;-(
