Hybrids have a lot of worthy qualities inherited from the varieties used (large fruits, bountiful harvest, resistance to weather conditions, diseases). One drawback is that hybrid seeds are not suitable for planting the next season, the plants may be born with unexpected signs.

The main characteristics of the variety:

  • The stem does not form.
  • The stem is strong, bristly, with medium foliage. Height - about 130 cm, brushes are usually about 8 pieces.

  • The leaves of the plant have a typical tomato shape, large dark green, wrinkled structure without pubescence.
  • The inflorescence is simple, intermediate type. The first inflorescence is formed above the 8th or 9th leaf, the subsequent ones - with an interval of 1 - 2 leaves.
  • The peduncle is articulated.

By the degree of ripening - early maturing. From the moment the seeds germinate to the ripening of the crop, only 90 - 95 days pass.

"Prima Donna" has a high degree of resistance to verticillosis, cladosporium, Alternaria, Fusarium and others. Due to its early maturity, the plant is not attacked by late blight.

Reference: Late blight actively manifests itself in the second half of summer, when the difference between day and night temperatures is significantly different.

The F1 prima donna is suitable for growing in open ground and in greenhouse conditions, in greenhouses and under a film. The variety gives excellent yields. With the right approach, you can harvest up to 8 kg from one plant. On average, from 1 sq. M. you can get 20 kg of tomatoes.

Growing features

"Prima Donna" was bred for cultivation in cold regions of the country with a short planting season. Tomatoes grow well throughout the Russian Federation. The variety loves warmth, but can bear fruit well on cold days.

Before planting, the seeds are soaked for several hours in a weak solution of potassium permanganate, then washed in running warm water. Some gardeners germinate seeds in wet material for several days or use growth stimulants. The soil should be well ventilated and fertile. The container for it should be wide, not deep. Mini greenhouses can be used. The soil is disinfected and heated to 25 degrees.

Seeds for seedlings are planted in early April to a depth of 2 cm and with a distance of 2 cm between them. The soil is spilled with warm water and covered with polyethylene or thin glass, if the seeds have not been germinated in advance. Humidity under polyethylene at a temperature of about 25 degrees will have a beneficial effect on germination. Remove the polyethylene after germination.

The pick is carried out when the first sheet appears. A pick (transplant into separate containers) is carried out to improve the root system. Feeding is carried out 1 - 2 times with mineral fertilizers. 2 weeks before planting, it is necessary to temper the plants (take the seedlings out into fresh air for several hours).

Seedlings that have reached an age of about 60 days are ready for planting in a permanent place. Prima Donna must have at least 7 sheets when she is ready to disembark. The holes are made at a distance of about 50 cm from each other, fertilizer with phosphorus is added. Watering - plentiful at the root. Mulching can help prevent weeds.

Loosening, weeding - as needed. Partial pickling is carried out, once every 2 weeks, a plant is formed into 1 stem.

Tying is required in the presence of large fruits. Individual supports or vertical trellises are used. Tying is carried out only with synthetic tapes, other material can cause rotting of the plant. Top dressing is carried out until the appearance of fruits. The following are used as fertilizers for tomatoes:

  • Organic.
  • Yeast.
  • Iodine.
  • Ashes.
  • Hydrogen peroxide.
  • Ammonia.
  • Boric acid.
