"Delizia F1" tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) is a very early variety intended for cultivation in the field and under covers. It produces flattened and strongly ribbed red fruit that weigh up to 180 g. The other characteristic feature of this variety is green colouring of the peel radiating from the pedicel. Fruit of this variety do not only look great, but are also juicy and delicious. Therefore they are recommended for direct, raw consumption. Resistance to diseases, one of the other advantages of this variety, allows to eliminate the need to apply chemical control agents during the culture. Tomato is a vegetable of high dietary and gustatory value. Its berries contain large amounts of vitamins C, B1 and B2, as well as potassium, phosphorus and calcium. Lycopene is the most valuable substance that tomatoes contain, as it has strong anti-cancer effects. Consumption of tomatoes decreases the risk of arteriosclerosis and supports functioning of the circulatory system.
Seeds of the "Delizia F1" tomato are sown from March to May in warm rooms. Seedlings need to be transplanted to the permanent site in the second half of May or at the beginning of June in 60 x 50 cm spacings. Due to the size of the fruit and strong growth of this variety it needs appropriate supports. Fruit would be harvest-ready from July to September. Slightly acidic, permeable, preferably humous and moderately moist soil on a sunny site constitute perfect conditions for tomato cultures. These plants need regular fertilizing, preferably with biohumus or enriching the soil with compost.
