Like most of its relatives, this tomato is grown mainly from seedlings. To do this, tomato seeds disinfected in a solution of potassium permanganate are planted in containers, left in a warm place and wait for shoots. When 1-2 true leaves appear on the seedlings, they dive into separate pots, and wait for the seedlings to grow and get stronger, periodically moistening the soil and loosening it. From time to time it is necessary to harden the seedlings by taking them out into the street, gradually increasing the time spent in the open air and bringing it to a whole day.
Important to remember! It is necessary to leave the seedlings on the street only after waiting for the end of the night frosts, otherwise the tender and still weak seedlings may freeze and die.
When 4-5 true leaves appear on the seedlings, you can transfer it to open soil.
Seedlings are planted in open soil in May. If you want to wait for the harvest earlier, you can plant the seedlings at the very beginning of May, but you should definitely cover the seedlings with film or agrofibre at first until the night frosts have passed. Seedlings are planted without shelter at the end of May.
Further care for tomatoes consists in timely, but not too frequent watering, fertilization, loosening, and weed removal.

But nevertheless, sometimes tomatoes are affected by late blight. To prevent this from happening, it is necessary to process the seedlings with special means before planting in open ground.
