Tomato Tomato Legend Koktebel refers to large-scale cultures. Juicy and large fruits have gained widespread use. To date, this type is grown in many regions of Russia, collecting a stable harvest.

In the closed soil, the height of the plants limits the height of the room. Form of leaves – standard for tomatoes, elongated, with pointed tips. During the flowering period, shoots are covered with yellow medium-sized flowers, which are collected in all-line or simple inflorescences. In one brush at the same time, it is formed from 5 to 6 fruits. The first inflorescence is laid around 9-10 sheets, and the remaining tassels can be found every 2-3 sheets.
The main qualities of fruits

The size of the fruit is very large, and in weight each of them reaches 700 grams. Form – rounded, slightly flat. There is a weak ribbed at the base of the vegetable. Skin smooth, smooth and moderately strong, under it fleshy and dense flesh.
To grow the most large tomatoes, you can remove part of the bandy in the brush. If you leave 2-3 flower, tomatoes are gaining weight from 1.3 to 1.5 kilograms. Despite the major sizes, fully overwhelmed tomatoes are not inclined to cracking. Inside each tomato, a large number of seed nests are formed, each of which contains a lot of seeds.
Mature tomatoes can be safely transported to long distances, without fearing them to spoil. They are placed in boxes in one layer. Tomatoes are kept for a long time, the main thing is to create suitable conditions in the room. High temperature and humidity are not allowed.

Ripening and fruiting
This fruit culture has the average timing of ripening, which numbered from 110 to 115 days. It is so many days that the seeds must pass from the moment of germination to the collection of fully overwhelmed vegetables.
The variety boasts a good yield. With square. the meter is obtained by 18 kilograms of vegetables, but this indicator is not maximum. Experienced gardeners collect 20 kilograms of fruits with open beds or 25 kilograms in greenhouses.
Dates of landing on seedlings and landing in the ground
Cultivat the legend of the cocktabel confused method. Sowing material must be heated in 55-60 days before the designated postage date of seedlings on a constant place. Based on this, calculate the exact time. If the seedlings plan to transfer to the ground in the second decade of May, then sowing on seedlings are carried out in the second decade of March.
Sowing material can be collected and germinated independently due to the fact that the grade is not considered a hybrid. Moreover, after 4-5 seasons, the varietal characteristics of the vegetable begin to deteriorate. To preserve all the advantages of fruit culture, it is recommended to buy a finished seed material in stores for gardening, and update landing.
Plot for germination is chosen and prepared in advance. Organic feeders add organic feeding to the autumn. The square meter of the site uses from 6 to 7 kilograms. And you can make a choice in favor of compost. These substances restore and increase soil fertility. To collect a crop of large and nutritious vegetables, it is necessary that the soil be saturated with a large number of useful elements.
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.
Experienced gardeners advise adhere to the following scheme when growing tomatoes – 2-3 bush per square meter of the site. If the plantation is thickened, the plants begin to hurt, and the yield decreases.
Growing and care
When growing a given variety, the bushes need to be tied to the shoots so that the fruits do not break the branches. And also unwanted their contact with the Earth. Support must be strong. Soothes are tied in some places. Separate attention is paid to large tomatoes. Specially undergoes the backups.
Subsequent care of the bushes includes mandatory execution of the following procedures:
Regular irrigation and maintenance of the required level of humidity;
loosening upper layers of land;
Getting rid of weaving plants;
Regular removal of lateral processes (stepsins);
making feeding throughout the growing season;
Bushes are treated with special compositions that protect from attacks of harmful insects and diseases;
Formation of bushes.
Large tomatoes love water. With a lack of moisture, they lose a juiciness. Constantly raw soil causes the development of fungal diseases, including Fusariosis. When growing vegetable culture, it is important to maintain the desired humidity level. Moderate watering – 2-3 times for a week. At the initial stages of development on one bush, approximately 0.5 liters of water are used. As the bushes develop, a portion liquid increases to one liter.
The irrigation procedure is desirable to carry out in the morning to avoid burns of foliage and intensive evaporation. If tomatoes are grown in greenhouses, they regularly ventilate them. For irrigation, use warm and dilated water. The optimal temperature is not lower than room.
The second important factor that has an impact on the yield indicator – making feeding. In order not to make the preparation of fertilizer yourself, you can buy a ready-made comprehensive composition in a specialized store. When using the composition, it is important to accurately follow the instructions.
The first portion of fertilizers contribute a week after transplanting seedlings in the ground. During this time, seedlings will have time to adapt in a new place. The second time feeding is used 14 days later. When using fertilizers, gardeners pay attention to the color of the leaves and the growth intensity of shoots. If the shoots are poorly developing, and the central trunk has become fragile and we need to make additional feeding. The third time the plantation fertilize 2 weeks after using the second serving of nutrients.
When cultivating a grade, the bushes form in 1-2 stems. This option has a positive effect on the volume of crop and its quality. As well as the bushes in this form convenient to care for.
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.
