"Ola Polka" field tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) belongs to beloved varieties intended for amateur cultivation in gardens and allotments. This plant grows a bushy habit with rigid, straight stems. Thanks to rather low height it fits well into pots. Its round, delicious fruit with sunny yellow skins are very sweet and tasty. They also contain plenty of vitamins, particularly provitamin A, vitamin C and minerals. We recommend to eat it raw in salads and sandwiches. They also make a great garnish for hot and cold dishes.
Seeds of the "Ola Polka" field tomato are sown in spring. Seedlings are best raised in a cool hotbed or at home. In May seedlings are transplanted into a permeable, loosened and watered soil. The bedding needs to be fertile, humous and kept moderately moist. Fruit will take on nice colour and the characteristic, sweet taste only on sunny sites. They can be harvested from August until end of September.
