Growing and care
In 2010, the tomato cultivar Sugar pink was included in the State Register of the Russian Federation for cultivation under film shelters and in the open field. Agrotechnics:
- Sowing seeds for seedlings is done in March. Seeds are placed in the previously prepared and moistened soil 1.5–2 cm deep, sprinkled with earth or peat on top.
- The container is covered with foil and placed in a warm place for germination.
- After the first "knees" hatch, the film is removed, and the container is transferred to the windowsill. In this case, it is important that the room temperature is + 20-22 degrees.
- When the sprouts acquire the first pair of true leaves, the seedlings dive and carry out the first feeding.
- When the shoots get stronger, they begin to harden, prepare for the upcoming planting. To do this, daily containers with future tomatoes are taken out into the fresh air. The course of hardening begins with a few minutes, gradually increasing the time of "walks".
- They begin to plant in greenhouses from mid-April, under film shelters - in early May, in open ground - not earlier than early June. It is important to plant the seedlings before flowering. If the bush has nevertheless outgrown and bloomed, the brush with flowers should be removed to prevent premature crowning.
- After planting, the plants need standard care: regular loosening, weeding and hilling. Watering is recommended at the root, rarely, but abundantly.
- Although the growth of the bushes is limited, they still need additional support. Tomatoes should be tied under the first brush.
- During the season, they carry out from 4 to 6 dressings with complex mineral fertilizers.
- It is more profitable to form bushes into 2-3 stems, while leaving a reserve stepchild in case of early completion of the central stem. This will allow the growing process to continue.
