Tomato "Szach" (Solanum lycopersicum) is a valuable early variety that produces round, flattened, vividly red fruit with sweet, rich taste. The berries weigh circa 100 g and consist of fleshy, beautifully coloured flesh with no paler core. They may be universally used - thanks to the excellent taste you may eat them raw, and due to the distinct colouring and flesh structure they are fitted for processing. They constitute a real vitamin bomb in any form and replenish shortages of kalium, that may lead to painful cramps and increased fatigue and stress.
Start tomato seedling production in early spring to transfer the seedlings to the field after the last May frosts. Choose a warm, sunny site with thoroughly cultivated, medium compact, water-absorbing soil that has been enriched with compost or fermented manure in the year before the cultivation start. "Szach" plants display trailing habit, so they need to be tied to the supporting poles. They yield crops very quickly, already 61 - 70 days after planting the seedlings.
