This type of tomato is intended for growing in open ground and exclusively in the southern regions of the country, as it is thermophilic and resistant to a lack of moisture. Seeds are sown for seedlings at the end of March. We use special containers, pots or mini greenhouses for this. The use of growth stimulants will not interfere.

For fertilizing tomatoes, you can also use "scrap materials":
- Hydrogen peroxide.
- Boric acid.
At the growth stage, the bush is formed into two stems by pinching. Since the shrub is determinate, it usually does not need a garter. But the organization of the correct watering and mulching the row spacings will not hurt.
