Characteristics and features of cultivation

Tomato is a salad, although it can be canned (whole) and made into juice or tomato paste. The fruit itself is juicy and fleshy, which makes it very tasty to eat even raw, for example, in salads. When canning, the tomato does not crack due to its dense peel... For outdoor cultivation, seedlings should be planted in early April. For greenhouses, an earlier planting date is recommended - mid or late March.

It is necessary to tie up if the shoots from the severity of the fruits already fall on the ground. Stealing is not required. Although the variety is quite unpretentious, do not forget about the standard care. Water the plant regularly, weed, fertilize the soil around the bush. Ripening occurs amicably, so it is important to control its growth, otherwise there will be a risk of losing the crop. A fairly rich collection is obtained from one bush, about 4 kilograms.
