Hello, my name is Elizabeth and I am a real experimenter at the dacha: every year I try to plant new and new varieties of strawberries, cucumbers and pumpkins. Well, and tomatoes, of course.
One of my discoveries was a variety of tomatoes called Persimmon: large, golden in color and really similar to the southern guest. By the way, the variety is quite young: it was created in 1999.
Persimmon - a variety of tomatoes universal: you can grow it in a greenhouse without heating, and in open ground, and even on a window in your apartment. The height of the bushes - from 60 to 80 cm, branching is not very active, the leaves are also small.
But Persimmon can boast excellent fruits: by weight they can reach half a kilogram (usually 400-450g), the color is unusual golden. The variety has a sweet taste, it is almost absent sour. The flesh of tomato persimmon differ tenderness and juiciness.
The fruits of this variety are dietary, rich in potatoes and vitamins. Fruits ripen in about 110 days, begin to bear fruit closer to the end of the second summer month and end closer to frost. Up to 5 kg of fruits can be harvested from open ground from one bush, and up to 6 kg in a greenhouse.
Fruits after harvest can be stored in its original state for about 3 months. They are easy to transport than valuable too. Ideal for fresh consumption. However, for the conservation of persimmon also suitable: a thick skin that has this. Also, it turns out a good tomato juice and ketchup.
The best temperature for growing tomato Persimmon is from 22 to 26 degrees above zero. If the temperature drops to 20 degrees or below, it will negatively affect the yield.
That is why in the northern regions of the country it is best to grow the Persimmon tomato in the greenhouse. The land will fit the most common, garden, but it should be treated with Fundazole in a weak concentration.
Usually, Persimmon tomatoes are grown from seed. Do not forget to disinfect the seeds. To do this, use:
- Aloe juice (we take part of water on a part of juice),
- Soda (1 gram per cup of water),
- Potassium permanganate (grams per 100 ml of water).
Important! If phytosporin is liquid, a drop of 100 ml of water is enough; take half a spoon of powder per 100 ml of water.
You can grow seedlings on the window and just in the room. In any case, the soil is also recommended to be treated before planting seeds. To do this, you can:
- Heat the earth in the microwave (a couple of minutes),
- Ignite in the oven (quarter of an hour),
- Disinfect with boiling water,
- Spill manganese (strong solution).
We consolidate the upper layer of the earth before planting the seedlings and make a centimeter groove here. We put the seeds here, but we don’t need to put them in large numbers in one groove. From above it is necessary for the first time to cover the soil with cellophane.
To understand when you need to plant seeds, you should clarify when the last frost in the spring is expected in your area. Sow the seeds should be two months before the first steadily warm days.
It is better to water them from a spray. This will allow the seeds to not float when watering. Do not forget to harden the seedlings: just take out a few minutes every day on the street. Every day we increase the time the seedlings stay on the street for a couple of minutes.
You can transplant when there are as many as three leaves. It is better not to do it after watering: let the leaves dry out. While we land in a greenhouse with good heating and lighting. On one meter we plant 3-4 shoots.
It is possible to transfer tomatoes to a permanent place only when there are as many as 6 true leaves on a sprout, and the height of sprouts reaches 0.15 m. It is best to give tomatoes a permanent place in greenhouses without heating.
The soil before planting is well loosened. It is also recommended to bring loamy turfy soil with manure (3 parts) and peat, which managed to decompose well (7 parts). The distance between the shoots should be about 40 centimeters. It is also recommended to add ash (10 kg per square meter) to the ground.
Several care features
Persimmon is a rather unusual tomato. Therefore, there are some features that must be considered when growing:
- Fruits can be picked immature: even outside the garden, they ripen perfectly,
- The grade "Persimmon" is located to a fitoftoroz disease. To prevent disease, plant no more than 4 bushes per meter,
- On the original "Persimmon" should be a green spot,
- To make it mature 7 days earlier, cut the stem above the base and insert a short stick into it.
“We grow orange tomatoes for a long time and love them a lot. Every year I take seeds, or I prepare it myself. I heard that sometimes they are half a kilogram, but I have never come across such beds. But grams of 350-400 copies were "
The tomato has a bright appearance and excellent agrotechnical characteristics.
Firms that have commercially available seeds of this variety: "Aelita", "APD", "Garvish", "SeDek", etc.
According to the shape of the bush, “Persimmon” refers to a determinant, shtambovy plant, stopping growth upwards, when the fruit began to form on the tip of the shoot.
Next, the tomato grows from the stepson, making its way from the leaf, which is located lower.
Bushes have dense dark green foliage (which is typical for tomatoes), weak branches, about 70-80 cm in height.
In greenhouses, plant height can exceed 1m. Leaves reliably protect a fruit from the scorching sunshine.
It is recommended to plant no more than 9 bushes per 1 m2, preferably 3-4 bushes.
Flowers and fruits of tomato
"Persimmon" - mid-grade variety of tomatoes. On a bush simple inflorescences are formed. Each brush has an ovary of 3-4 tomatoes.
In unripe fruits, a green spot forms near the stem, when ripe, it disappears.
The first flowers are laid over 6-7 real leaf, and then every 1-2 leaves.
Mature fruits gain orange color. Round flattened they resemble a popular southern fruit. They have tender sweetish pulp. Tomato juice of this type is good for health because it contains lycopene, beta-carotene, trace elements, vitamins. It is noted that even immature tomatoes do not lose their taste.
At the initial stage of ripening, the fruits are covered with greenish spots, which subsequently disappear.
The view has a good yield. Tomatoes ripen in 85-110 days after logging in, it all depends on the weather.
Fruiting occurs in July, when planting seeds for seedlings in March, lasts for 5 months, almost to the cold. Tomato weight ranges from 230 to 340 g.
Sometimes it can reach 500 g. Tomatoes weighing 700 g are recorded. Greenhouse conditions make it possible to gather up to 6 kg of “Persimmon” from a bush. A typical garden bush produces about 4–5 kg.
The fruits have 6-8 chambers. Mature tomatoes contain 4-6% dry matter.
Sales variety occupies a leading position among the previously bred species of tomatoes. The dense skin allows the torn crop to be stored in a dark place for 2–3 months, so they are well-suited for transportation.
Moreover, vegetables, picked in an unripe condition, are able to “reach” to maturity while in boxes. But some gardeners note that the fruits of this variety "lie" less than red varieties of tomatoes.
Tomatoes "Persimmon" have their positive and negative sides. The positive characteristics include:
- high yielding
- dietary quality of the crop,
- interesting taste
- the universality of the use of mature tomatos,
- good transportability,
- long storage time.
It is recommended to use these tomatoes during the diet, because they have a low percentage of organic acids.
As for the cons, there are not so many of them. These include:
- poor resistance to disease,
- low level of parasite resistance
- sensitive to the content of potassium and calcium in the soil.
The following recommendations will help to avoid mistakes and grow delicious sweet tomatoes.

Planting and breeding
The peculiarity of the species is that the seeds are very small, besides there is very little of them in the vegetable. The number of chambers (departments where seeds are formed) in tomatoes is 6–7 pcs. You can buy seeds in specialized stores. But for the independent collection of seed stocks for the next season, will have to work hard.
Seeds are usually planted at the end of March. Preliminary they need to be treated with potassium permanganate.
Then for a short time left in a bowl with a liquid medium that enhances the growth of future bushes.
Meanwhile, evenly lay in the box quality and fertilized soil. After there is a weak solution of "Fundazol".
Seed germination, according to reviews of gardeners, from 50%. Shoots appear about a week after sowing.
Treated tomato seeds deepen into the ground by 1 cm, moisten with warm water, loosen, cover with plastic or food film and put in a sunny place. It is important to maintain a stable temperature - 23 ° C.
When the first shoots appear, the film cover must be removed. After a week after planting the seeds - to feed the seedlings with minerals.
Soon, two leaves will appear on the sprout that has broken through the ground. Now it is dived (transplanted) with single stalks into separate dishes.
In a month, when the last frosts are past, the seedlings will be ready for transplanting into the ground. Depending on the particular region - it usually falls on the end of April or May.
By this time, the height of the bushes usually reaches 15 cm. But up to this point throughout April, the sprouts are hardened: they are brought to the open air for 3-5 minutes in a place with sufficient sunlight. Gradually you need to increase the time the seedlings stay on the street.
If hardening is successful, seedlings can be transferred to shallow dimples. Do not forget to pre-pour fertilizer. Next, gently fill the roots with soil, lightly tamp everything.
Watering seedlings to produce at the root. To do this, use only pure warm water. After each procedure, "bathing" is required to loosen the soil.
To achieve an excellent harvest, it is important to spray the culture with an antimicrobial agent every 14 days, which will help protect it from diseases and parasites. In addition, the plant requires mineral and organic fertilizers.
According to the ripening period, this vegetable belongs to tomatoes of medium ripeness: 105–112 days required from sowing to harvest. Fruit ripening depends on many factors, it is:
- air temperature,
- quality soil
- the absence of diseases and parasites.
To obtain the desired results, you must have special skills in the care of the bushes. Therefore, before you buy seeds or seedlings of this variety, decide whether you are ready to grow whimsical tomatoes.
Periodically, you need to water the bushes and fertilize them with mineral-organic compounds. However, excessive moisture should not be allowed near tomatoes. Watering the variety should be 1 (maximum 2) times per day. Provide moisture to the earth preferably in the morning and evening, when there are no scorching sun rays. Watering is done at the root.
Fertilizer and dressing
Seeds of tomato "Persimmon" are planted in a normal substrate, brought from the garden. It should be slightly rammed and crushed by a thin layer of peat or another similar mixture.
Since this garden crop consumes a huge number of nutrients from the soil, the soil must be well fed. A weak solution of "Fundazol" is added to the fertilized substrate.
Growing varieties in the greenhouse
Farmers and gardeners usually do not have a problem where the wonderful tomato should be planted.
The purpose of agriculture - growing in greenhouses that are not heated, and in the soil under the open sky.
When growing these tomatoes in the greenhouse - will be the best yield. Also in the greenhouse it is easier to protect the seedlings from the aggressive environment. However, "Persimmon" unpretentious also when planting in open ground. But it is more suitable for the southern regions with a warm climate.
So, the greenhouse should be provided with good lighting. It is necessary to moisten the soil, loosen it well and hold small compacted grooves in it.
Should control the density of planting material. Between the stems should be a distance of approximately 35 cm - this will provide the bushes with a sufficient amount of free space. Do not forget about the density of plantings - 4 bush per 1 m². Thickened planting can provoke the defeat of seedlings of late blight and other diseases.
Land should be covered with glass or polyethylene. Air temperature should be in the range of 22–25 ° C. Lowering the temperature to 20 ° C leads to a significant decrease in yield.
So, the vegetable "Persimmon" is intended for growing exclusively in the southern latitudes of Russia or in the well-heated greenhouses of more northern areas. Compliance with these recommendations will give an excellent harvest, which will provide seven tomatoes for the whole autumn-winter period.
Diseases and pests
Tomatoes varieties "Persimmon" have susceptible to disease. The following are the main diseases that gardeners should know:
- tomatoes "Persimmon" can be exposed viral disease, which will help to cope with an effective drug "Fitolavin",
- at necrosis bush dies before the appearance of fruit. If damaged stalks are detected, they need to be burned, and the seed stock before sowing is disinfected,

- microsporiosis - A disease that is also caused by fungal spores. It develops if the temperature exceeds 23 ° C. First, the seedlings die leaves, stem, rotting fruit. The green part of the tomatoes dries. To get rid of microsporosis, the bush should be treated with a solution in which copper is present.
Agriculture can also be attacked by slugs, wireworms and whiteflies. Special treatment will protect the plant from insect attack. Variety "Persimmon" can also be protected from pests by planting a number of plants (garlic, onions). Pests do not tolerate the enzymes and odor secreted by these plants.
The above diseases and parasites pose a real threat to the harvest, since this crop is not resistant to adverse external factors. Diseases of culture lead to a significant decrease in yield, and sometimes to the destruction of the bush. Therefore, it is more suitable for gardeners with experience.
However, if you have the opportunity to pay a lot of attention to the care of the beds, then you will definitely succeed. With timely treatment - the culture fully recovers and bears fruit well.

Everything is mixed and calcined in the oven for 25-30 minutes at a temperature of 90-110 degrees. Then the soil is spilled with a pink solution of potassium permanganate or Fundazole.
Before sowing, the seeds are soaked in a solution of potassium permanganate (for 25-30 minutes), then processed with any growth stimulator for 3-4 hours. After that, the seeds are lightly dried.
Grooves are made in the ground, seeds are distributed over the soil surface with an interval of 2-2.5 centimeters from each other. Crops are sprinkled with a thin layer of earth and slightly pressed. The earth is moistened with a spray gun. The box is covered with film or glass. The temperature of the content should be at least 22 degrees.
When the first shoots appear, the box is placed on the window sill, the shelter is removed.
When forming 2-3 main leaves, the seedlings are spiked in separate pots. Weak sprouts are removed.
With a lack of lighting for seedlings, additional lighting is provided with a fluorescent lamp. Light day should be 14-16 hours. The dazzling is done early in the morning and in the evening.
When grown in a greenhouse, seeds are sown in February, and transplanting is done in April. For the greenhouse seedlings do not need hardening.
When planting in open ground seedlings for 2.5-3 weeks before that, you need to start to take out into the fresh air, hardening begins with 15 minutes and ends with 4-6 hours.
In May, after the spring frosts pass, the seedlings land in the ground. A seedling should be at least 15 centimeters tall and have 6-8 leaves.
Land for planting need to dig and loosen. Planting tomatoes produced in rows or in the fossa. The gap between the bushes should be 30-35 centimeters. On a square meter is placed no more than 3 bushes.
Seedlings are planted with earthy clod. The plant is crimped with soil and watered gently at the root. To preserve moisture, the soil around the plants is covered with plant mulch.
Fruiting begins from the end of June - the beginning of July. Harvesting is extended for 4 months, until the first autumn frosts. For a bountiful harvest, plants undergo the process of pinching.
Care includes fertilizing with mineral and organic fertilizers, timely watering, loosening the soil and weeding.
When growing tomatoes in the greenhouse, greenhouse, you need to ensure regular ventilation or access of fresh air. High temperatures lead to diseases of tomatoes.
Watering plants need at the root. Watering is done in the morning or in the evening.
Tomatoes at high humidity are affected by late blight, first the stems turn black, then the fruit.
At the first signs of illness, diseased branches or plants are immediately removed and burned, otherwise the disease may spread to other bushes.

Description of the main subtleties of care for tomato Persimmon
To obtain a bountiful harvest, it is necessary to provide the plant with constant care. Tomato bushes are recommended to tie up to vertical supports. This is because the fruits are very heavy, so the stem can not always withstand them. If you do not hold the garter in time, the bush under the pressure of the fetus may break.
Make sure that the plant has the right nutrition. Periodically, it should be fed with mineral fertilizers. Watering this variety is recommended once a day. It is best to carry out watering in the morning or evening hours, otherwise the sun's rays can dry the ground very quickly and moisture will not have time to be absorbed. Watering should be carried out directly under the bush, so there is a greater likelihood that moisture will get directly into the root system.
The root system of the plant should receive the right amount of oxygen, so you should periodically loosen the soil.
Do not forget to remove the weeds, as they hinder the growth of young plants. If there are too many weeds, the tomato bush will not get the right amount of nutrients, so it may soon die.
