The density of plants in the greenhouse and the open soil should not exceed 4 units per 1 m2. Optimal is the distance of 60 × 50 cm.

Growing and care

Tomato gives high bushes in need of constant tissue. Formation recommended in 1-2 stems to obtain maximum yield. Passings are broken throughout the growing season, but only in the greenhouse. The procedure is repeated every 2 weeks. In the open ground from steaming, you can refuse.

When sowing seed, it is important to take care of the selection for them of a suitable nutrient medium. The best solution will be peat cassettes, in which the tall grade will receive a sufficient amount of substances necessary for the growth and development of substances. If the landing is performed in the tank, they are pre-disinfected. Immediately in open soil, the tomato striped chocolate can only be sown in the south, with the steady constant temperatures of more than 17-20 degrees.

The originator also recommends additionally practicing the immersion of seed in the growth stimulator. In beds, the nutritional soil must be loose enough. The optimal composition is considered a mixture of turf, sand and peat in equal proportions. If it is planned to transfer seedlings on the beds with blooming brushes, quite hardened and adult, it is enough to step up the soil with humus and ash. Growing young tomatoes is produced at temperatures up to +20 degrees.

Saplings obtained at home require acclimatization. They prepare them in advance to changing the temperature modes on the balcony, gradually increasing the time of stay outdoors. During the first week after a transplanting, it is worth preparation of a shelter for tomatoes in the open soil. Otherwise, during the acclimatization period, the bushes may die from supercooling.

Watering schedule for this variety is very important. Culture does not tolerate the convergence, but, with a lack of water, waiting for a rich harvest, it is unlikely to succeed. Optimally, if the plants will be planted from the very beginning to the land so that the earth is not covered with dry crust. Watering is organized with a frequency of 1 time per week, in the heat should be focused on the state of the soil and the general type of tomatoes. Waiting for greens – reason to change the moisture.

The choice of feeding also matters. Powerful shoots from this variety are perfectly formed and without nitrogen additive. But at the stage of ripening fruits, it is not worth neglected. We will need potash-phosphoric solutions or granules. Supplements in the form of wood ash, rewind and strongly diluted manure will be useful.
