Growing features

The highest yield results in unprotected soil are obtained in the southern regions. In the middle lane, for a guaranteed yield, it is better to cover this variety with a film. In the more northern regions of the country, it is grown only in greenhouses.

The main feature of the variety is its poor tolerance to temperature changes and general moodiness in growing.

It is also worth mentioning high immunity.

Sowing for seedlings is best done in March, as late sowing reduces yields. The bush is formed into one or two stems, but more often into one. The trunk needs a mandatory garter, and the branches in supports, as they can break under the weight of the fruit.

It responds very well to organic fertilizers at all stages of growth. During active development, complex feeding is required 5-6 times per season. Watering is plentiful, especially in drought and in the southern regions.

Diseases and pests

"Tornado" has very good resistance to all typical diseases, which does not exempt gardeners from prevention. In order for the plant to be healthy and to yield a crop, it is necessary to observe the regime of watering and lighting, loosen and fertilize the soil in time. Then the disease will bypass you.

Of the pests, spider mites can most often be attacked. To combat this pest, a strong soapy solution is used, which is used to wipe the areas of the plant that were struck by the insect. Washing them off and creating an environment unsuitable for their life. This will not bring any harm to the plant.

You should also beware of the invasion of slugs, they are collected by hand, all the tops and weeds are also removed, and the ground is sprinkled with coarse sand and lime, creating a kind of barriers.

This variety is poorly suited for those who are just starting to grow tomatoes in their area. Here you need experience and dexterity, as well as knowledge of caring for tall hybrids. Good luck and good season.
