Where can you grow?

Mid-late varieties can be grown in the greenhouse and outdoors. But preference, nevertheless, is given to the first option.

Due to the fact that the vegetable ripens long enough, it is better to protect it from external irritants so that the plant does not die and does not get sick. There are also varieties that are great for outdoor use, but most of them are designed for warm to moderate climates.

If your area is often cold, then these tomatoes are not suitable for open cultivation.

In terms of size, indeterminate varieties are usually grown in greenhouse conditions, where it is easier to care for them and there is less risk that the plant will get sick. Determinant tomatoes are usually grown outdoors, as they are less whimsical.

In order to grow vegetables successfully, it is imperative to prepare the seedlings on time.

In order to do this in the case of mid-late vegetables, it is enough to use the following algorithm:
