Biological features of the plant

In regions with cool summers, it is grown in greenhouses and under film shelters. It tolerates high temperatures of air and soil without serious damage to the state, unpretentious in general care.
Basic agricultural technology
For seedlings, seeds of the variety are sown in the second decade of March. By the first half of May, the seedlings will be ready for outdoor use. Landing is carried out according to the scheme: 50x40 cm. For 1 sq. m leave 7-8 plants. The film shelter is necessary for the period of spring frosts and low temperatures, when the threats have passed - the film is removed from the tomato.
1 hour before planting, the seedlings are watered - this contributes to easier extraction from containers. Tomatoes are placed in prepared holes, deepening the main stem by 4–5 cm, which is necessary for the formation of a strong and branched root system of the variety.
The first application of liquid fertilizer is scheduled in 10-14 days. At the same time, the top layer of soil is mulched with straw, sawdust or covered with non-woven agromaterials.
According to the characteristics, determinant tomatoes of the Solaris variety do not require tying, but so that the stems do not bend under large fruits, supports are installed. Bushes can be formed into one or two trunks. The peculiarity of determinant tomatoes is the formation of a flower cluster at the end of the stem. Further, the stepson will continue to grow, he must be correctly identified and left.
The Solaris variety has no difficulties in growing. A good harvest of ripe tomatoes is harvested not only by experienced gardeners, but also by novice summer residents.
