Growing features

Like other mid-ripening tomatoes, "Golden Drop" is grown in seedlings. Sowing begins in the second half of March. The seeds can be treated with a growth stimulant or freshly squeezed aloe juice. The soil is made up of a mixture of garden or turf soil with humus. Seeds are sown to a minimum depth using containers or small peat pots. The plantings are sprayed with water, covered with foil and placed in heat.

After the first sprouts appear, the seedlings are exposed to bright light. When the first true leaves unfold on the tomatoes, a pick is carried out with top dressing with liquid mineral fertilizer. At the age of 55-60 days, the plants are prepared for moving to permanent residence. The soil in the greenhouse is loosened and mixed with humus. Tomatoes are placed at a distance of 50 cm from each other and attached to trellises or stakes.
