Tips to reduce water requirements

We recommend mulching the beds
Experience has shown that by covering the floor with hay or straw, evaporation can be reduced by 80%. If you keep the beds evenly moist, an optimal humid microclimate will be created under the mulch. This not only promotes the growth of plants, but also enormously reduces water consumption. On our farm we only water every 2-3 days and irrigate a 200 m2 cultivation area in the Algarve in Portugal with 500l of water. Our beds are always moist, which promotes plant growth and harvest quality.

It is also advisable to keep the beds moist at all times, even if the bed is not used for a certain period of time
The desiccation of the soil leads to a huge decline in micro-and macro-organisms in the soil, resulting in a barren soil over time. Tests have shown that the water content in the entire bed with full-scale irrigation remains longer than if watering is only carried out selectively. Due to the small volume of the poured surfaces, in contrast to the large dry volume, they dry out faster than if the entire volume of the bed is filled with moisture. Similar to heating in an apartment.

Maintaining an energy level always requires less energy than having to achieve it again and again.

The meat tomato 'Tschernij Prinz' is a perennial mid-early and Old Russian varietal rarity from Irkutsk in southern Siberia. The nationally popular rod tomato plant was bred as a specialty variety for amateur gardeners around 1950. The plant is short and forms many strong side shoots on which about 400g heavy, flat round to round and slightly ribbed fruits grow. The special patterned juicy mild flesh has a red flame and an excellent fruity and aromatic taste. Thrives even in cooler temperatures.

From February after the last frosts, sow directly into the open air. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from January to April.

Moderate climate (e. g. B. Germany, Switzerland, Poland)
Sow into the frost-free open air in mid-May immediately after the ice saints. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from March to May. The seedlings are separated into the bed from the 3rd Pair of leaves after the cotyledders.

General
The best time to germinate tomatoes is the first warm summer week in spring. After the seeds have germinated at warm temperatures, the seedlings need cool temperatures. We always recommend the pre-culture, for this purpose let the seedlings grow in a small bowl up to the first tomato leaves, then pik into the desired container. After peckering, let the seedlings grow at moderate temperatures until they are planted out as seedlings.
Tomatoes Prefer a sunny Location with a permeable, always moist, nutrient-rich-humus and slightly loamy soil. Prepare the soil for tomatoes with deposited animal manure. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
Meat tomato plants are generally cultivated with 1 or 2 shoots. We recommend a framework for tying the tomato shoots. In order to stimulate the root growth and thus the plant growth of the plants, put the seedlings deeper into the soil, up to the leaf axis of the cotyledons. Sufficient and uniform irrigation has a positive effect on the quality of the fruit. At temperatures below 5 °C, the plant reduces its growth. A regular harvest promotes yield. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds. Propagation via cuttings is possible.

Care Plants
The bed in which tomatoes grow should never dry out completely, regular watering is necessary to keep the growth of the plants stable. M It animal manure prepared beds and planting in mixed culture, replaces additional fertilization.

Germination ability of seeds: 8-9 years
