Gardeners about the variety
“I would like to share my impression of growing peach pink tomatoes. I grew several bushes in a greenhouse. Neighbors gave seedlings. Bushes are short, different from ordinary tomatoes. The leaves and stems are pubescent, and the skin of the fruit is like velvet, with a small nap.
Tomatoes are not large, they are formed with large tassels. The Persians sang late, pulled them out in October. The care was simple. I did not remove my stepsons, the bushes began to fall over from the severity of the fruits, so I tied them up.
I irrigated, like other tomatoes, 1 - 2 times a week. She threw straw under the bushes. There were no illnesses. I'm happy with the harvest. She released the seeds, distributed them to neighbors and left them for the next season. I will not plant a lot, but I will definitely put 4 bushes in my greenhouse. "
Marina, Moscow region:
“Peach pink blacklisted. I will not plant these tomatoes anymore. The largest tomato was 2 * 3 cm in size. The yield was not impressive. The bushes were huge, more than 2 meters. Brush formed 9 pieces, each with 15 pieces of tomatoes. The fruits are deep pink in color. "
How to care for fluffy tomatoes
Let's figure out how to plant powerful F1 hybrids correctly so that they have enough of everything: nutrients, light, moisture. The rows should be placed no closer than 50 cm. Dig holes from each other at intervals of 40 cm.
Pour ½ a bucket of aged humus (2-year old) or mature compost into each hole 40 * 40 cm in size. Simultaneously fill with fertilizers:
Calculate the quantity based on the recommendations always indicated on the pack. Prepare the wells at least a week before transplanting peach red tomato seedlings. Pour a liter of water under each bush.
You will need mulch to keep the soil loose and moist. If there is a garden with fruit trees, prepare fallen leaves for the tomato ridges in the fall. Straw and dry grass will do. It is enough to cover the soil with a layer of 5 cm.
Pros of mulch:
- retains water;
- mulch, rotting, feeds tomatoes;
- earthworms and other microorganisms are cultivated in the soil, bringing benefits to plants.
Tie the bushes to a support during active growth. The indents will have to be tied up all summer, since their growth does not stop during the entire growing season.
Partially remove stepchildren even in low-growing varieties. Leaves that begin to turn yellow must be removed: it is especially important to do this in greenhouses. Partial leaf removal can be attributed to a preventive measure against late blight.
Prepare an infusion of mullein or dry chicken dung. A liter of this tincture is enough for a bucket of water. You can feed fluffy bushes at the root 2 weeks after transplanting to the ridge.
The second and third feeding should be carried out after 2 weeks. In the infusion at the third feeding, add nitroammophoska, superphosphate. Fertilize only after watering: this way you can avoid scalding the roots.
If the beds are covered with mulch, water once a week or less, and if there is no mulch, and in hot, dry weather, water twice a week. Watering should not be superficial. Soak the soil well, but do not overflow.
