See all the characteristics
Tomato coral reef can be equally successful to raise both in the open soil and in the equipped greenhouse. This relatively recently derived hybrid is so undemanding in care, which quickly won the hearts of gargrin of any level of preparedness.
History of removal
Originators of the culture of “Agrofirma Search” and FGBNU “Federal Scientific Center of Vegetable Growth”. The authors of breeding development announced well-known specialists, such as Gorshkov, Tereshonkov, Hovrin, Kostenko. The hybrid of the first generation is included in the State Register of the Russian Federation almost immediately after submitting an application, namely in 2012. Official Synonym Culture – Coral Reef F1.
Description of varieties
Intenerminant hybrid Coral reef rather tall, in the conditions of greenhouses he can dorate and up to two meters, and even above. Leaves growing on a bush have medium sizes, the color is green. The number of foliage is also average.
The main qualities of fruits
Tomatoes Coral Reef belong to the group of biff tomatoes. This means that they are large and fleshy, on average weight of each such tomato can be from 300 to 320 grams. On one brush, they are matured to 4-6 fruits, which gives a high harvest.
The form of berries rounded, there is no ribbed, they are slightly flattened. Light green immature fruits at all there are no stains in the fruction. Spectacled tomatoes have bright red painting skins. It is dense, not cracking. Therefore, tomatoes are well transported.
Tomatoes Coral Reef have excellent taste characteristics, namely sour-sweet taste with a well-pronounced aroma. However, there are few sugar. But many like it. Vegetables can be used in different ways: for salads and cuts in fresh form, as well as for cooking juice or puree, add-ons hot dishes. For all-door canning, for understandable reasons are not suitable – do not fit in the bank.
Ripening and fruiting
Coral Reef – Radial Culture. Only 90 or 95 days must pass from sowing seedlings so that you can already have delicious fruits. At the same time, harvesting can be stretched, you can remove the fruits since the first numbers of July until the most frosts. With greenhouse cultivation, fruiting will last until winter.
On average, from one square meter of landings, you can get a fairly rich crop of fruits – 18-19.5 kilograms.
Dates of landing on seedlings and landing in the ground
Common technology of cultivation of coral reef in the central part of the country is a shot. Seed sews approximately 50-60 days earlier landing in a soil or greenhouse.
The main stages of growing seedlings at home
Preparation of seeds
Basic preparation methods: Warming, disinfection, soaking in growth stimulants, bubbling, hardening, germination. These technicians are aimed at different results and have a different purpose.
According to experts, preliminary soaking can increase yields by 30%. The duration of soaking is determined depending on the solution used and the quality of seeds.
What kind of soil to choose for seedlings
Land for planting tomato seeds house should not be taken from the garden. The soil for seedling tomato should have good breathability, provide the necessary level of humidity, and the pH acidity level should be about 6.5 units.
If the bushes to tie to the grinder, while they are formed into one stem, a compacted landing is possible. In this case, tomatoes should be placed in a half-meter from each other. It can be a two-row placement. Neighboring double row landing should be from 0.8 m. Another version of the scheme in one row – 50×80 cm.
Growing and care
Adensive tomatoes are planted in the greenhouse only after warming up the room and when the soil will remain warm at night (15 degrees above zero). As for landing on open beds, it is possible at the end of frosts, that is, at the beginning of the summer. It is very convenient to cultivate high plants using a sleeper. Of course, the garter of powerful bushes of tomatoes coral reef is required. The grade is more often in 1 or 2 trunk.
How and than feed tomatoes?
At each stage of growth, various trace elements are needed. All fertilizers can be divided into two groups: mineral and organic. Folk remedies are often used: iodine, yeast, bird litter, egg shell.
It is important to comply with the norm and the period of feeding. This also applies to folk remedies, and organic fertilizers.

Processing and prevention from diseases and pests
Diseases and pests of tomatoes in the greenhouse
During the cultivation of tomatoes in the greenhouse, there are often diseases due to a violation of the temperature regime and excessive humidity. The most common diseases are fungal (phytoofluorosis, colaporiosis, rot).
Diseases and pests of tomatoes in open soil
Fighting diseases and pests of tomatoes in open areas is quite complex. This is due to the fact that the grated is exposed to various pathogens and pest insects.
