Many vegetable growers, growing tomatoes on their site, do not even suspect the existence of such a name as the terminant varieties. But this is the very variety of tomatoes with tall bushes, which many housewives love. Indeterminate tomatoes grow over 2 m in height.
Caring for such a crop consists of removing the stepchildren to form the plant with one or two stems. And during the pinching, a small penny is left so that a new branch does not start to grow from this place. A flower cluster appears above 9 leaves, which indicates a later ripening of the crop, however, indeterminate varieties of tomatoes for open ground have gained their recognition due to the long fruiting period and the possibility of obtaining large yields.
What are the pros and cons of growing indeterminate tomatoes
Like any other vegetables, growing indeterminate tomatoes has its positive and negative qualities. Let's take a quick look at the advantages of tall varieties:
- The growing season of an indeterminate tomato is much longer than that of a low-growing variety. The determinant bush quickly and amicably gives up the entire crop, after which it no longer bears fruit. Indeterminate plants constantly set new fruits before the onset of frost.
- The stems tied to the trellis offer free access to fresh air and sunlight. This relieves the plant of phytophthora and the formation of rot, which is often found in rainy summers when grown in open beds.
- The very high yields, due to the use of a limited planting area, allows the cultivation of tomatoes for commercial purposes Fruits of indeterminate varieties lend themselves well to storage, transportation and are considered the most delicious.
Of the shortcomings, one can only name the extra labor costs. To tie the stems, you will have to build trellises. Bushes tend to grow indefinitely in length and width. The plant will constantly have to be shaped by removing the stepsons.
