The Herodes tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is a variety intended for cultivation in the ground next to stakes or in a foil tunnel. It produces good-looking fruits in the type of buffalo heart, weighing 250 g. They are very aromatic and fleshy, covered with a red or raspberry peel. The unique, sweet taste of the fruit makes them perfect for direct consumption raw on sandwiches and in salads, as well as for grilling or for delicious preserves. The tomato is a vegetable with high dietary and taste values. Its fruits contain large amounts of vitamins C, B1 and B2, as well as potassium, phosphorus and calcium. The most valuable ingredient in tomato fruit is lycopene, which has strong anti-cancer properties. Eating tomatoes reduces the risk of developing atherosclerosis and supports the functioning of the circulatory system.
Herodes tomato seeds are sown from mid-March to early April on the window sill. The seedlings are planted permanently in the second half of May or at the beginning of June, at a distance of 50 x 50 cm. Due to the vigorous growth, the plants should be managed with appropriate supports. The fruits are ready for harvest from July to September. For the cultivation of tomatoes, the best substrate is slightly acidic, permeable, preferably humus and moderately moist, and in a sunny position. During cultivation, plants require frequent fertilization, preferably with biohumus, or the enrichment of the substrate with compost.
The package contains 0.5g or around 60 seeds
