  • the possibility of growing outdoors and under film shelters;
  • fruits do not crack;
  • bear fruit until late autumn.

  • difficulties in transportation;
  • when overripe, the fruits become too watery;
  • due to the green color, it is difficult to determine the degree of ripeness of the fruit.

Pests and diseases

The "Malachite Box" is not a hybrid, therefore it is less resistant to diseases. But, bushes of green-fruited varieties are distinguished by high "tolerance" to fungal diseases (phytophthora, fusarium). In addition, due to the fact that the variety grows well and bears fruit in the open field, such diseases of "greenhouse" varieties as apical rot, cladosporia, macrosporiosis, black leg appear much less frequently.

Open field tomatoes are susceptible to diseases such as mosaic... The disease is characterized by the appearance of mottling on leaves and fruits. Infected tomatoes must be removed to avoid spreading the disease.

Pests can also be a source of tomato disease. Whitefly, spider mites, plant aphids - all these pests can be dangerous for the crop. Spraying with special preparations diluted in water, such as Phosbecid, Aktara, Fitoverm, etc., will help to get rid of them.

The unpretentiousness of the "Malachite Box" to weather conditions and resistance to late blight will appeal to any gardener.
