"Surya" tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) is a very early, dwarf variety intended for cultivation in the field. It produces nicely coloured, red, shiny, elongated fruit that delight with their intense taste. They are firm, lack the characteristic greenback and completely resistant to breaking. They are suited for direct consumption "straight from the bush" or preparing delicious preserves. 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 "Surya" tomato are sown from March to beginning of April on a windowsill. Seedlings need to be transplanted to the permanent site in the second half of May 30-40 x 50 cm spacings. 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. "Surya" tomato grows well in containers, too.
