A photo

Pay attention to the photo of the "Sugar Giant" tomato:

Growing

The bush is usually formed into two stems, but one can also be formed. Due to its high growth, it is imperative to tie up and make supports under the branches. This will provide additional wind protection if the tomato is grown outdoors. Responds very well to complex subcortexes.

"Sugar giant" in unprotected soil is best grown in the southern regions. In areas of the middle lane, the bushes will be lower, and the fruits are smaller, but this does not affect the taste. To increase yields in the middle lane, it is better to grow it in film shelters. In more northern regions, it gives a good harvest only in greenhouses.

Diseases and pests

The plant practically does not suffer from fungal infections. The only thing to be afraid of is diseases associated with improper care. To avoid such problems when growing, you should regularly ventilate the room where your tomatoes are growing and observe the watering and lighting regime.

Of the harmful insects, it is often exposed to melon aphids and thrips, especially in the southern regions; the Zubr remedy is successfully used against them. It can also be attacked by the Colorado potato beetle, the drug "Prestige" is used against it.

Like many other species, the greenhouse whitefly can be invaded; it is fought with the drug "Confidor".

As you can see from the description, “Sugar Giant” tomatoes are not the most difficult to care for, the only difficulty is the weakness of both the bush itself and its branches, this requires garters and props, otherwise everything is no more complicated than with other varieties of tomatoes. Good luck and great harvests.
