Features of planting and care
Tomatoes are grown mainly from seedlings, sowing seeds should be done in the spring at different times. They depend on the climatic conditions of the regions. You should choose a time so that about 1.5 months remain until the date of the proposed planting of the "Hurricane" tomatoes on the beds. It takes so much to grow seedlings.
Seeds of "Hurricane" tomatoes are sown in separate cups or pots, plastic or peat. You can sow in a common container, but then they will have to dive when they throw out 3-4 leaves. The volume of the cups should be about 0.3 liters, this will be enough for the seedlings to grow normally.
For their filling, a universal substrate is well suited, which is intended for growing seedlings of vegetables. The cups are filled with soil mixture almost to the top, a small depression is made in each in the middle and 1 seed is lowered there. Previously, the seeds of the "Hurricane" tomatoes are soaked in water for 1 day, and then in a fungicide solution for dressing for about 0.5 h.
The seeds are watered and sprinkled with a substrate. After planting, the cups are transferred to a warm place and covered with foil. They should remain in pots until sprouts emerge from the ground. After that, the seedlings are transferred to a well-lit place. The most suitable place for tomatoes at this time will be the windowsill.
Tying is a must for tall tomatoes
For watering tomato seedlings "Hurricane" use warm and always soft, separated from chlorine water. At first, it is convenient to water the soil from a spray bottle, simply moisten it, then from a small watering can for flowers.
Hurricane tomatoes can be fed with complex fertilizers with microelements. The frequency of application is every 2 weeks, starting from the stage when 1-2 true leaves appear on the plants.
Attention! If tomatoes will grow in regular beds, they need to be hardened 1-1.5 weeks before transplanting.
The seedlings of "Hurricane" tomatoes are transferred to the ground only when the frost has passed. In the regions of the Middle Belt, this can be done during the second half of May. The greenhouse can be planted at least 2 weeks earlier. Tomatoes "Hurricane" are placed in grooves or holes according to the scheme of 0.4 m in a row and between - 0.6 m. Since the plants grow tall, they need supports. They are installed on tomato beds immediately after planting.
Agrotechnics of "Hurricane" tomatoes does not differ from most varieties of this crop. They need watering, loosening and feeding. Water so that the soil remains moist at all times. It cannot be overmoistened and overdried. After watering, loosening should be carried out. The same procedure will destroy the weed sprouts.
Advice! You can keep the soil moisture longer if you lay mulch on the surface of the earth.
Top dressing of the Hurricane hybrid tomatoes is carried out 3 or 4 times per season: 2 weeks after transplantation and the beginning of flowering and fruit setting, and during the period of their mass growth. Both organic and mineral fertilizers can be used as fertilizers. It is useful to alternate them, but they cannot be applied at the same time.
Tomatoes "Hurricane" grow well on top, but give little lateral branches. They are formed in 2 shoots: the first is the main branch, the second is the primary stepson. The rest are cut off, like the lower old leaves on the tomato bushes. The stems are tied to supports so that they do not break.
In the greenhouse, you can grow up to 12 kg of tomato fruits per square meter
The harvest of tomatoes from the bushes of the Hurricane hybrid should be harvested from June to mid-August. They can be picked completely ripe or slightly unripe. From red and soft fruits, you can prepare tomato juice, which turns out to be very thick, dense, slightly unripe - can be preserved in jars. Tomatoes can be stored in a cool, dark place for a while. They need to be folded into small boxes no more than 2-3 layers in order to reduce the likelihood of decay or mold.

Reviews of gardeners about the tomato Hurricane F1
Yulia Efremova, 28 years old, Astrakhan
I have been growing "Hurricane" tomatoes on my private plot for several years. It cannot be said that they are in some way much superior to other hybrids or varieties: the yield is average, the fruits are medium-sized. But I chose them not for large-fruited or record-breaking yield, but for fruits of the same type, almost uniform in weight. They are great for canning and taste good both fresh and processed.
Natalia Grishina, 33 years old, Tyumen
I like to grow tall tomatoes, they give a higher yield per unit area than low ones. Although you have to tinker with them, tie up and remove stepchildren, all this then pays off with a good harvest. The Hurricane hybrid is otherwise unpretentious in care, all that is required is to water and fertilize the bushes on time. Tomatoes ripen quickly and can be harvested for almost 2 months. They are dense and tasty, you can prepare salads from them, marinate or roll up in jars as an ingredient in vegetable preparations. In seaming, tomatoes do not soften, they retain their shape.
