Gold fish

Tomato goldfish reviews


Unsurpassed, resistant to late blight, grade. Tomato Goldfish

Small yellow fruits of this variety are good because they are stored for quite some time. If you decide to plant tomatoes Goldfish, then on the New Year's table may well be a salad with these fresh vegetables from your own vegetable garden.

Tomato Goldfish. Description of positive qualities

The grade is intended for cultivation in greenhouses and an open ground. The fruits are small, 80-120 grams. The color of the peel is orange, the tomatoes themselves are elongated, pear-shaped with juicy watery flesh. There are usually at least 8-10 fruits on a brush, which makes the variety fruitful.

The advantages of the variety is that it is early ripe. At the same time, the Golden Fish tomato is genetically resistant to late blight. This remarkable property allows it to produce commercial fruits until mid-autumn. Tomatoes themselves are not spoiling for a long time. This is a great variety that you will enjoy from August to October.

The variety is rich in carotene, which provides a bright yellow color. Fruits shot with a brush ripen perfectly. It is possible to suspend a bush dug up by the autumn. Not scary if the landing site will be in the lowlands. Cold dew does not hurt this variety. The dense skin of a tomato allows it to keep an ideal form when canning. Cooking spicy and spicy snacks, whole canned tomatoes are ideal for this variety. Transportation over long distances is not terrible for the Goldfish.

Weak sides

Sometimes you can find complaints from gardeners that they were disappointed by the Golden Fish tomato. Reviews say that the taste of the tomato is not pronounced, they themselves are too small. If the salad is not the most delicious variety, then for canning, they are great. The skin at the Goldfish does not crack. Neutral taste in combination with spices gives an excellent result.

Gardeners complain that the tomato bush grows for a long time, not giving ovaries. Indeed, the first inflorescences appear above the 8-9th leaf. The leaves often grow, and the tomato needs careful regular picking.

Growing tips

Problems with the growth of foliage and lack of ovaries are known to experienced gardeners. There are several secrets to growing tomatoes with similar inclinations. After the rosette is formed, the tomato must be fed with special fertilizers, dive unnecessary leaves and stepchildren, provide conditions for flowering and fruit ovary:

  • The air in the greenhouse must be dry. You can never water the tomato in this period.
  • Create a stream of air in the greenhouse using the vents.
  • Do not poison the insects on the site: they help pollinate.
  • Apply an old proven method of pollination using fleece mittens.
  • Put a bowl of honey or sugar syrup in the greenhouse to attract flies. Tomato Goldfish is pollinated in the traditional way.

Remember that plants tend to be "lazy", not giving the desired number of ovaries. With the right farming techniques, up to 9 kilograms of these useful tomatoes can be collected from one square meter.

Some summer residents plant a tomato Goldfish in tubs-buckets near the sunny side of the house. Scourge can be tied up on the trellis and then the tomato will become not only a vegetable, but also a kind of decoration, long delighting you with golden fruits. Despite the fact that seed producers recommend leaving one lash when growing, some summer residents leave strong stepchildren and get a well-deserved big harvest from them. If the heat comes early, do not be afraid to plant the "fish" in the open ground.

Sow seeds for seedlings should be one to two weeks earlier than other varieties. Then you will have time to grow a scourge to 2 meters, and the harvest will be even greater. Already in a pot of seedlings, put a wand so that the plant does not break. If possible, before planting seedlings, periodically shade this variety so that it does not outgrow. Then on the 100th day after germination you will receive the first ripe tomatoes. Remove unripe tomatoes, because they are excellent. This will make life easier for the plant and increase the number of fruits on the bush, giving them the opportunity to form in the future.

Canning tips

Although the Golden Fish tomato has a skin that is not as dense as that of hybrids, it is convenient to preserve it. A pinch of citric acid will help to preserve the color of the fruit. Beautiful your snacks will make a mix of varieties of tomato with the same density and different colors. Unripe Golden Fish can also be rolled up, the fruits will turn out with a crunch.

Volga FD, Saratov region, from Natalia Kazakova (Zakhvatieva)
Tomatoes 2-3 weeks after planting in open ground
This is her younger daughter, Olga - an enthusiastic gardener! With 'Baikal' vegetables are much tastier.

What kind of tomato-goldfish (yellow) Who planted some of the growth and tasty?

Valentina Grigorieva

I really liked it, it tasted good and harvested the harvest from them, and most of all they suit me for whole-canning. This year I will sow them again. They are quite high, in any case, they have grown at least 1.8 m.

Alexander Grushin

Tomato cultivar Golden Fish is recommended by developers for growing in greenhouses with a garter formed shoots to the trellis or in the open field with fastening the stems to stand-alone supports. Culture needs forming - in greenhouse conditions the plant is formed by one stem. Fruits are used for the preparation of preservation and other household preparations for the winter and eating fresh: in salads and separately, cut into slices.
Goldfish should be attributed to the mid-ripening varieties of tomato, because the period of maturation of its fruit is 112-125 days. The ripening period is deducted from the time of emergence of the tomatoes to the first crops. The plant is indeterminate type (prone to constant growth and yield), high - reaches a height of 2 meters. Bush has light green leaves of medium size. The inflorescences are simple, begin to form after the 8th or 9th leaf - further brushes form every three leaves.
Fruits in the form of a cylinder, orange colored with a sharp nose at the tip, the weight of the fruit is 90 grams, which allows them to be used for whole-canning. The pulp does not contain allergens, fleshy, good taste with a high amount of beta carotene. The yield of a variety of tomatoes is Goldfish is good - up to 9 kilograms of tasty fruits are harvested from each square meter of crops. The output of marketable products is large.
The advantages of the variety are: high and stable yields, excellent fruit taste, plant resistance to late blight and other common diseases of tomatoes.

Tatyana Pavlova

For several years I have been planting, for preservation, they are not very suitable, since my soft skin, the skin can be cracked during preservation, the shots taken are quickly overripe. But delicious, I love to eat them from the bush. Although they write that late-ripening, they matured early. Growth about a meter, 5 pieces is enough to plant

Irina Shabalina

In the OG somewhere 1m, early, productive. cracked in salting., not sour, you can eat fresh, although there are many more varieties of taste, I don’t plant it anymore.

Choosing varieties of tomatoes

Choosing varieties of tomatoes! Growing tomatoes in the Urals!

Choosing varieties of tomatoes! Growing tomatoes in the Urals!

I would like my dear readers and friends to talk about who is planting what sort of tomato and is happy with all the qualities, that is, which sort of tomato is liked more than others.

Buying sachets of seeds, we do not really find fault with what is written on them, and when we begin to study what we have written, we enter into a stupor ...

The inscriptions "stored for a long time", "transportable", "the fruits do not crack" personally alarming me greatly. As a rule, these tomatoes - tasteless, bred for sale and the so-called professional hybrids - those that lie on the shelves of supermarkets. With a white hideous frame under a beautiful red skin.
However, many of these tomatoes are well suited for whole-fruit canning.
From determinant hybrids for canning a good hybrid is tomato "Caspar". Very productive hybrid, in August stands hung with green and red sordelkoobraznymi tomatoes. By the way, and the taste they are not so bad.

The variety is resistant to many diseases - a non-binding inscription. Of course, this variety is surely resistant to swine flu, hares and horse diarrhea. But the trouble is - it can be unstable to the cladosporia and other nasty tomato sores. Therefore, much more credible is the inscription listing specific diseases of tomatoes to which this variety is resistant.

Tastes good fruit - tasteless tomato. At the same time on many hybrids they write a great taste, but the tomato is still tasteless.

Briefly describe some of the tested varieties and hybrids.

Varieties that you liked:

Pink honey

Despite the average yield and average resistance to diseases, this variety is very tasty and still more productive than, for example, a bull's heart. the plant in the greenhouse was about 1 meter high, they grew in me in 2 branches. The first fruits were large and very tasty. On the following brushes the fruits are smaller, but still tasty.

De barao is a giant. Very productive "creepers". Large, slightly ribbed, as written on a pack of "cubic" fruits. In the greenhouse it fruited up to the frosts, while the size of the fruits on the lower ones, which was almost the same on the upper hands. I would rate the taste qualities of this variety as “good”. As for disease resistance, a tomato in this variety was one of the healthiest in the greenhouse.

Lion Heart. Also a very tasty tomato, with red large fruits. The bush is small, and the fruits are not very much. I will plant because of beautiful and tasty fruits.

Caspar F1. A wonderful determinant hybrid for use in pickled, salted, etc. kinds of. At the same time, fresh can not be called tasteless. The taste of the fruit is satisfactory. Disease resistance and yield are good or even excellent. Closer to autumn, the tomato is all hung with fruits.

Rosemary F1. Good rose fruit hybrid. And it tastes good, and the yield is normal.

Roma. Apparently, I don’t have a real gypsy, but some kind of hybrid of a gypsy with a pink giant or something like that. The fruits are large, multi-chamber, and the color - brown-purple, in the region of the stem - green. One of the most delicious tomatoes. We grow from our seeds. And their seeds somehow came out long ago from seedlings purchased on the market ... They sowed Gypsies from purchased sachets, but there it was smaller in size and yield was not pleased. And the taste was worse.

I planted earlier, but this year I will not.

Eupator F1. All praise the yield of this Gavryshevsky hybrid. But the taste it seemed to me about the same as the store tomatoes.

La la la fa F1. Almost the same. Fruit productivity and keeping quality is really impressive. And the taste is better than that of Eupator. But the place for them to take somehow reluctantly.

Marmande. The taste of the fruit is wonderful. The yield is average, rather even good. Then somehow I will plant again.

San Pierre. French variety, more fragrant fruit search. The taste is excellent. I will not plant because the plant is clearly not for our climate - only the bush manages to separate and occupy half of the greenhouse (the leaves are huge, the stem is thick), as it is already autumn. Productivity is therefore bad, but maybe we just did not have time to show everything that we are capable of.

The same can be said about the Italian variety San Marzan (San Marzano). Only he is still not so fragrant and not so tasty at all. Perhaps in Italy, he would have shown himself better.

Persimmon. Many praise her, saying that a large and tasty tomato ... I may have failed, or Medvedka has eaten ... But tomatoes of medium size and medium taste have come out. Somehow with orange tomatoes I do not have a good relationship.

All cherry varieties. Cherry is red, golden drop, ildi, idyll, bead ... I decided for myself - self-indulgence. Other tomatoes are eaten, and this little thing lies in the box and fades ... our children, too, somehow they are in a drum, larger ones. Who wants to mess around and roll up decorative 200 gram jars - it certainly please ... But when you can take the "pink giant" and its salad ... In general, this is your self-indulgence cherry, only the place is occupied

Tigrella - quiet horror. Sick of the very first in the middle of summer, the fruit of nasty taste with a tough non-repulsive frame. And they say the old English variety.

Moneymaker is almost the same tigrella, only much more fruitful and the fruits are red, not striped. But in general, the variety is not for me.

from here

Bull heart Tasty, beautiful. But not fruitful and sick one of the first, infecting neighbors.

Tornado F1 - a hybrid, bought in a Czech company. Why do I want to try - because the pack says "Keep the soil moist, so that the fruits do not crack." This in theory should mean that there is no hard tasteless frame.

Northern beauty. According to the description - pink-fruited, tasty, fruitful and generally solid advantages ... and the picture on the pack also liked

Heavenly delight - read a lot of reviews, and it is such that I should like the taste. Large, tasty tomatoes ... In early August, in a salad ... almost verses.

Pepper yellow. Well, there must be someone yellow?
Moscow delicacy. I liked the inscription "They are distinguished by a high content of sugars and great taste." Well, well, let's see.

Here are more such varieties and opinions regarding each variety.

Nikola, Yablonka Rossii, Alpatieva 905a, Gina (N / K), Snegir (B / T), Leningrad early, Polar early, Fontanka, The Copper Horseman, White filling, Summer Garden, Caspar, Gelena, Margarita, Semko-2000, Rosa winds, the Golden Queen, Samson, Master Garden, Masha, Paul Robson, Gogoshary striped, Winter Cherry, Peto-86, Northern Crown and Volgograd early. Pretty Woman, Baritone, Nicola, Persimmon, Olya, De Baro Yellow and Orange, Early-83, Presto, Verlioka

I prefer tomato Blagovest, you will always be with the harvest. For many years I grow it in the garden. The Kostroma and Verlioka varieties are very similar to him. In the greenhouse I plant up to 18 varieties of tomatoes (not for sale — I just find it interesting to watch and compare). I like the variety Cosmonaut Volkov, Budenovka, Golden Sun, Orange Perfection, Königsberg - all these are large-fruited and very fruitful

The eagle heart is indeterminate, very fruitful, fruits of the type of a bull heart, both in taste and shape.
Goldfish is a determinant, fruitful, fruits are elongated, orange-colored, weight 70-80 grams, not sick, tasty and beautiful in salting, only salt a little unripe.
Honey Spas - indeterminant, large honey-colored fruits, not sour, fruitful, heart-shaped. They bought seeds of these varieties in the store. This year I planted several Chelyabinsk hybrids - Vityaz, Peach, Bull's giant heart, which did not meet my expectations, although the care, feeding, growing conditions were the same for all tomatoes (greenhouse), just one hybrid literally shook !! This is the Bullish heart of the golden Chelyabinsk selection - orange, large, heart-shaped, and the taste ... sweet, fragrant, not to come off !! Dwarf and the Ural multiplicity. In our Perm Territory, everybody now turned red and was delicious.

Black moor, very tasty tomatoes; De Barao, Sugar Bison; A royal gift, not a tall bush, but fruitful; Wild Rose; Bear's paw, elegant variety, fruitful and tasty.
Many years ago, they gave me seeds called Eagle's heart, very much like Bull's heart. Not very fruitful, but tasty, I can not refuse. Last year I tried a variety of Königsberg, well, very tasty tomatoes, I will plant again. Not a bad variety Banana is red, fleshy and tasty tomatoes, short.

I didn’t like low-growing hybrids, there wasn’t any taste, but they were kept for a long time, no one ate. Sprut sadila 2 times, not impressive, neither taste nor yield. Hochloma is a very beautiful cream; De barao-in twist; Pink Paradise hybrid - pink, very productive, large; Half fast; Jaguar, Hidalgo. “Budenovka” very much likes my men, husband and son-in-law, large, pink, very tasty, fruitful, and my friend sent me a variety from Kirov “Pink Elephant” does not give in to phytophthora, very fruitful, large-pink. In 2009, the tomatoes were weighing up to 900 grams, in 2010 the biggest ones in this heat were up to 500 grams. I have been growing tomatoes in a greenhouse for more than 30 years, I decided not to change these varieties for myself, it is painfully good, I will sow on February 5, plant in a greenhouse (we have it from polycarbonate) on April 10-15, first harvest on June 10-15

The “raspberry giant” of tomatoes on it is a lot of big ones. The grapes from the trunk are overwhelmed, you have to tie up the wounds with a plaster, and the third year of the “Miracle of the Earth” is really a miracle. Но самый мой любимый это конечно сорт "Буденовка" или как на пачке пишут в скобочках (Вельможа) он лидер без сомнения с 4 кустов 16 ведер 12 литровых помидор и верхние мелкие я просто оборвала и выкинула. По своему опыту поняла что для того чтобы они выспивали рассада должна быть "старой" то есть посев (как я делаю) 23 февраля, прада намучаешься с ней и пикировка и окон не хватает (у меня нет ни каких лам и прочих новых введений все как у моей бабули было) но результат радует.And no greenhouses, nor what I do not process them in 2011, bushes removed from the ground on October 21, despite the fact that we live in Siberia, Altai Krai.

Growing tomatoes in the Urals

The weather conditions of the Middle Urals are not very suitable for growing tomatoes in open ground. The frost-free period in the air lasts only 70-80 days, and on the ground even less than 60 - 80 days. However, tomatoes here are one of the most popular vegetable crops. With a skillful selection of varieties of tomato, properly grown and hardened seedlings, good care with every square meter of greenhouse in the short summer of the Urals, you can get up to 15 kg of tasty fruits.
Often novice gardeners fail because they acquire and sow tomato seeds of unknown varieties or even those varieties that do not ripen in this area. Many times cultivated varieties in the Nonchernozem region Siberian early, Gribovskiy soil, white filling, Peremoga, Talalikhin and others. No doubt, these varieties are good, productive, resistant to diseases. But for many years, the Moldovan Early turned out to be the most fruitful variety. In an unheated greenhouse, it ripens 3–5 days earlier than the Siberian early ripening season, and it considerably surpasses it in yield. In some years, the yield of tomatoes of this variety reached 15 kg per m2 of greenhouse. Moldovan early ripening together, more than half of the crop is harvested until August 10, that is, before the spread of phytophtoras. Shrubs 50-60 cm tall, fruits are flatly rounded, weighing 80-100 g, very tasty. A number of years grown tomatoes varieties Kiev and Giant. The fruits of the Kiev variety are lemon-colored, sweet, very large, their average weight is 200-250 g, individual fruits reach a weight of 400 g or more. Bushes are powerful, up to 1.5 m tall with a thick stem, prone to thickening, resistant to disease. From the bush I collect up to 30 fruits. The method I use for growing seedlings of tomatoes, and then fruits, is simple and reliable. It is available to every gardener and is designed to get a good harvest with minimal labor costs.
It is not enough to choose the most productive variety, you need to get even a full-fledged healthy tomato seeds. No wonder they say: what is the seed, so is the fruit. The quality of seedlings, plant resistance to pests, diseases and frosts, and the further development of the whole plant depend on the quality of seeds and their preparation.
For sowing, seeds are taken from early ripened and healthy fruits grown on well-developed plants. Seed tomatoes lie until the flesh is thin. In the spring before sowing, I select high-grade seeds by specific gravity. To do this, immerse the seeds in a 5% solution of salt. In solution, the larger seeds settle to the bottom, all the frail, surfaced, thrown out.
It is known that some diseases of tomatoes, for example, strick, are transmitted to plants through seeds. To protect the bushes from diseases, seeds of tomato are sown before sowing. The easiest way to dressing is to treat the seeds of a tomato with a one percent solution of potassium permanganate. To do this, 1 g of potassium permanganate is dissolved in 100 g (half a glass) of warm water and drop the seeds for 10 minutes. Then they are thoroughly washed and lightly dried.
Before sowing, tomato seeds are soaked and kept in water at room temperature for two days. After that, the seeds are kept for three days at a temperature of minus 2 - 3 °: put them in the freezer of the refrigerator on a tea platter with water. Plants grown from seeds that have undergone such hardening are not afraid of short-term temperature drops. Hardening increases the activity of photosynthesis, promotes enhanced growth of the root system.
It must be remembered that one pre-sowing seed hardening is indispensable. To grow plants resistant to low temperatures, it is necessary to harden them from the moment of sowing to planting in the ground. What do they do in this case? The prepared seeds are sown in boxes filled with a mixture of 3 parts of ordinary garden soil from a bed and 2 parts of fresh sawdust with the addition of one half-liter can of ash and three matchboxes of superphosphate on a bucket.
Boxes take a depth of 5 - 6 cm. A thin layer of soil does not turn sour, and tomato seed germination is very high. Seeds sow in the grooves and lightly cover with earth. Crops watered with warm water, put in a warm place and close the glass. Later on I sprinkle warm water every day.
Shoots appear on the 4-5 day. With their appearance, the boxes are placed on the brightest place, the temperature for 7 days must be lowered to 12 - 15 ° in the daytime, and at night to 6 - 8 °. This technique helps to get strong and stocky tomato seedlings. In the future, increase the temperature during the day to 18-20 ° at night to 10-12 °.
Seedlings dive after the appearance of the second true leaf. In this case, the central root is necessarily pinch off by one third to form powerful lateral roots. The soil for picking is taken of the same composition as for sowing. I fill the cups with it not to the brim, but leave it on top of 4-6 cm for filling. Such beddings are produced twice 10 and 20 days after the pick.
In harsh climates, seedlings can only be grown in pots. When landing in the ground without potted seedlings on the acclimatization of the injured root system, 10-15 days of expensive time are lost.
For many years, variants of picking into peat briquettes, boxes, paper cups were tested. But everything was the most convenient, as it turned out to be a pick into ordinary glass glasses. It is convenient in all respects. Seedlings grow well in glass cups, while it is very convenient to control the growth of the root system and the soil moisture. It is also important that when growing seedlings in an apartment, glass cups do not “litter” and do not spoil the appearance of the window sills.

Dive into cups of necessarily two seedlings, after 15 - 20 days a weak seedling is cut at the root, but not pulled out. Dropped out tomato seedlings are well watered and kept in the shade for 3 - 4 days at room temperature. Then the seedlings are installed between the window frames, where it is located before planting into the ground. For better placement it is made between the frames of the shelves from the boards at a distance of 40-50 cm from each other. On the shelves and put the seedlings tomato. The outer pane is always open. Depending on the weather, the air temperature between the frames is controlled by the inner sash of the window. Thus, the window produces a home greenhouse with conditions close to the best for seedlings. The correct ratio of nutrients, normal illumination and optimal temperature conditions make it possible to get annually powerful, well-developed tomato seedlings.
People often ask what seedlings are fertilized with, how do they get a big crop of tomatoes every year?
It should be borne in mind that young seedlings of tomatoes are in need of phosphorus and at the same time poorly assimilate it from the soil with a low concentration of this element. If you do not make enough phosphate fertilizers, the seedlings will fall behind in growth, their leaves will become dark purple in color.
Such seedlings develop more slowly, the timing of flowering and ripening of the fruit is greatly delayed. Very carefully I use in the phase of seedlings fertilizers containing nitrogen, since with abundant nutrition with nitrogen, the seedlings are pulled out, and this leads to a delay in flowering and fruit set.
Feed the seedlings 10 and 20 days after picking before pouring the soil into the glasses. Feed up with dry mineral fertilizer, put 6-7 grains of superphosphate, 2-3 grains of nitrophoska into each glass, then add 1-2 cm of soil and then water it as needed.
In order for the plants not to get sick with a streak, I irrigate the seedlings a few days before planting in the ground with a solution of potassium permanganate (5 g per 10 liters of water).
The soil in the greenhouse is prepared in the fall. In September, for every 2 m2 of greenhouse, one bag of fallen woody leaves is poured and the soil is immediately dug up. In early April, as soon as the soil in the greenhouse thaws to the depth of the shovel (there is still snow on the street), 10 g of nitrophosphate are added to each square meter of greenhouse, then the soil is dug again. Such a treatment for several years allowed us to obtain a loose soil, with a high moisture capacity and quite nutritious.
In early April, immediately after digging in the middle of both beds, radishes, lettuce, spinach, and Chinese cabbage are sown. For some reason, many gardeners forget that these plants freely endure frosts of 3–4 ° and sow them only on the eve of the first of May.
On Victory Day, there are always plenty of vegetables on the table. And, as a rule, on May 9-10, I begin to plant the first tomatoes in the greenhouse. And in case of strong return frosts, I plant tomatoes in 3 steps (with weekly intervals). Usually seedlings of varieties Moldavian early, Kiev and Giant endure these frosts.
Many planting schemes have been tested and came to the conclusion that in the conditions of the Urals the thickened planting has the greatest effect. With our short summer, it is impossible to grow fruits in more than 4 tiers in an unheated greenhouse. And if it is impossible, then why use a sparse landing?
Moldovan early tomatoes are planted 40 cm in a row and 60 cm between rows. In addition, planting is thickened by half, planting two bushes in each well. Thus, I sow up to 100 bushes per 10 m2 of greenhouse area.
Tomatoes are planted so that after planting the hole remains at least 15 cm deep. This is done so that as the bush grows into the hole, it is possible to add 3–5 cm of soil to the ground every week. With this hilling, additional roots are quickly formed in the tomatoes, the nutritional Wednesday. The soil becomes more porous, the root system breathes better. And water during irrigation penetrates to the roots gradually, without washing out the nutrients from time to time in the form of fertilizers.

Tomatoes love moist soil and dry air. When the humidity of the air is above 70%, the tomato flowers fall off, since fertilization does not occur. Therefore, water the tomatoes twice a week. I water so that the earth was wet to the full depth of the roots. I water with water heated by the sun for 2-2.5 buckets per 1 m2. Water is poured at the root without moistening the leaves. To reduce humidity in the greenhouse, with the end of the threat of return frosts, everything that can be opened is constantly kept open for ventilation.
To better pollinate flowers, tomato plants are sometimes shaken by pulling on the wire, to which they are tied with string. They do it at noon, when it is hot in the greenhouse and the air is the driest.
Great attention is paid to plant nutrition. For dressings use only mineral fertilizers.
Due to the fact that with thickened plantings, the removal of mineral substances from the soil is large, plants are fed three times. For the first time, in the period of fruit loading on the first hands, 10 g of superphosphate, 20 g of potassium salt, 10 g of urea, 3 g of potassium permanganate, 2 g of copper sulfate are put on 10 liters of water. The second time, during the beginning of the collection of the first ripe fruit, is 10 g of water 30 g of superphosphate, 20 g of potassium chloride, 20 g of urea, 10 g of lime, 2 g of copper sulfate to 10 liters of water. For the third time, in the period of mass harvesting of fruits, 30 g of superphosphate, 20 g of potassium chloride, 3 potassium permanganate, 2 g of copper sulfate are used for 10 l.
To accelerate the ripening of the tomato, the stepsons and the lower leaves are removed. It also improves the access of light to the fruit, improves the ventilation of the greenhouse, especially the lower air layers.
In connection with thickened plantings in order to prevent and combat diseases, every 2 weeks they spray the Bordeaux plants with plants. Copper sulfate also helps to fight diseases, which I use in root dressings three times over the summer, as copper increases tomato's resistance to infectious diseases. Tomatoes do not tolerate cold nights, because for fruits the temperature of 8 ° of heat is already destructive. Therefore, tomatoes are removed from the bushes only brown or green.
Tomatoes are produced in crates, where I place the fruit in two or three layers. To speed up ripening in a box with green tomatoes I put some red ones. And on the contrary, choosing red tomatoes from the box, delaying the ripening period of the others.
