Seeds of hybrid tomatoes can be sold processed or unprocessed - information about this is on the packaging. Untreated seeds should be prepared for planting yourself. They are placed in a pale pink solution of potassium permanganate for 20 minutes, after which they are washed in running water and immersed in a solution of trace elements (half a tablet per glass of water). Instead of potassium permanganate, you can use a 20-minute soak in a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide. This substance not only disinfects the surface of the seeds, but also accelerates their germination.

The planting material is kept in the microelement solution for 12 hours. After this, without drying or washing, they are sown in seedling boxes to a depth of 1 cm.

To obtain an early harvest, tomatoes are grown through seedlings. Sowing is carried out in February. Seedlings are planted under film covers in the second ten days of April. In the phase of full germination and the formation of the first true leaf, the seedlings are planted according to a 5 by 5 cm pattern. 400-500 seedlings are placed per square meter.

During cultivation, seedlings are fed two or three times - the second time two days before planting and combined with abundant watering. The height of the finished seedlings is 13-15 cm. Plants sown at a later date are grown without picking, transplanting the seedlings directly into the garden bed.

Asvon F1 is planted in rows every 20 cm, leaving wide row spacing - 90 cm. Thickening stimulates tomato bushes to increase fruiting on the periphery, which simplifies harvesting.

In order for seedlings to quickly take root in open ground, a day before planting they are sprayed with adaptogens: Epin or Silk solution. It has been proven that treatment with Epin enhances the ability of plants to resist cold. Silk, on the contrary, increases heat resistance. Depending on the region in which the plants will be grown, the seedlings are treated with the appropriate adaptogen.

Application of Silk:

  1. the package of the drug is dissolved in 1.5 liters of water;
  2. spray the leaves, trying not to get on the ovaries and flowers (if any).

Application of Epin:

  1. 1 ml of product is dissolved in 5 liters of water;
  2. spray the leaves.

Advantages and disadvantages

Among the main advantages of the variety:

  • early fruit ripening;
  • high taste of tomatoes;
  • good yield;
  • resistance to diseases.

No shortcomings were noticed in the hybrid. The only peculiarity is that tomatoes are demanding in terms of soil nutrition . On poor soils, yields are significantly reduced.

Criterias of choice

Typically, each gardener chooses short tomatoes based on his own preferences for ripening time, size and color of the fruit, and taste characteristics. In addition, several other factors should be taken into account:

Features of the greenhouse. For summer buildings (for example, made of cellular polycarbonate), it is better to choose early-ripening varieties that are resistant to temperature changes or extreme heat.

For heated winter rooms, you should pay attention to options with a short growing season and tolerance to a lack of sunlight. If there are problems with water supply, you need to plant plants that are drought-resistant and not prone to cracking.

Growing goals

For personal needs, it is enough to focus on your tastes; for subsequent sales, give preference to high-yielding and transportable varieties.

Purpose of tomatoes. It is advisable to decide in advance on the required quantity of early vegetables and those that will be used for storage and preparation, including separately for their different types. For example, for whole-food preservation it is worth focusing on small- and medium-fruited varieties; for fresh salads, processing into tomato juice and similar products, large fruits are suitable.

Disease prognosis. In closed ground, pathogenic microorganisms accumulate more, and when growing only tomatoes in a greenhouse for several seasons in a row (without crop rotation), the risk of infectious diseases increases significantly

In this case, it is recommended to pay attention to the latest disease-resistant hybrids. And when choosing non-hybrid forms, you need to think through the process of disinfecting seeds and the greenhouse, ventilation and subsequent treatments.

The tomatoes are round-cuboidal, with slightly pronounced ribbing, shiny skin, which protects the fruit from cracking. The weight of tomatoes ranges from 70 to 100 g. The pulp is dense, the tomatoes hold their shape well. The taste is rich, sweet, without wateriness. High content of sugars and solids (up to 6%). The color of ripe tomatoes is bright red-pink, without green spots at the stalk.

Tomato hybrids

Let's see which varieties of truss tomatoes are the best for greenhouses. If in the south tomatoes bear fruit well in the ground, they are planted in a greenhouse exclusively for very early or late harvesting, but in the north the situation is different. Even though tomatoes are grown in greenhouses there, weather conditions still affect their growth. Low temperatures and cloudy weather do not have the best effect on the development of even greenhouse vegetables - not every greenhouse is equipped with central heating and uninterrupted electric lighting. In addition, any additional energy costs affect the cost of tomatoes. Here we need hybrids that can successfully grow and bear fruit even in conditions of low temperature and lack of lighting.

Often tomatoes suitable for planting in southern regions are not suitable for cold climates. But it would be wrong to think that southern varieties cannot be grown in the north, but by transferring northern varieties to the south, we will get a miracle harvest. We may not get it at all. Northern tomatoes simply will not survive the hot southern summer - they are simply not designed for it.

We will consider exclusively truss greenhouse hybrids, and we will pay more attention to those tomatoes that grow in cold climates

Features of cultivation

Tomatoes of the Asvon F1 variety can be grown in seedlings or without seedlings. The seeds are treated with a growth stimulant. The soil should be nutritious and light; a mixture of sandy soil with humus is ideal; you can prepare it yourself.

When using the seedling method, seeds are sown in containers or peat cups with a small depth; special mini-greenhouses can be used. In the phase of formation of the first pair of true leaves, the seedlings are planted and then fed with liquid complex fertilizer.

Tip: When growing without seedlings, seeds are sown in soil fertilized with humus. The plantings are sprayed with water and covered tightly with film. As a result, tomatoes grow strong, strong, and do not require hardening.

Adult plants are watered abundantly, but not too often. During the season, tomatoes need to be fed at least 4 times, alternating organic matter with mineral complexes. Foliar feeding is useful, for example spraying with an aqueous solution of superphosphate.

Read more about a variety of fertilizers for tomatoes:

  • Complex, phosphorus, ready-made, TOP of the best.
  • Yeast, ash, iodine, hydrogen peroxide, ammonia, boric acid.
  • For seedlings, when picking.

There is no need to form compact bushes; if necessary, the branches can be tied to a support. It is recommended to remove the lower leaves to allow air and sun access to the fruit. Mulching will help control weeds.


The first watering is carried out 1.5 weeks after transplantation. in the future – at intervals of 5 days. Using warm water, pour 5-6 liters under each plant. After this, the top layer of soil is loosened and weeds are removed.

It is impossible for the root system to experience a lack of space. The formation of a bush is not required, because side shoots appear in small numbers. Considering that a large number of fruits are formed on the bushes, garters are required. To prevent moisture evaporation, you will need to mulch the root part. For this, either straw or humus is used.


During the season, Asvon F1 tomatoes are fed several times.

  1. 2 weeks after planting, the plants are fed with nitrogen fertilizers: ammonium nitrate or urea 20-30 g per 1 square meter.
  2. After 3 weeks, use complex fertilizers (nitrophoska, ammophos, azophoska) containing nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium - 30-40 g per 1 sq. m.
  3. A week before harvesting vegetables - phosphorus-potassium fertilizers: superphosphate - 25-30 g and potassium sulfate 30-40 g per 1 square meter.

When fertilizing, fresh bird droppings or manure should not be used. Only their infusions are used.

Disease and pest control

The culture is resistant to diseases and pests. It is extremely rarely affected by anthracnose and nematodes. Vofatox solution (2 ampoules per 10 liters of water) helps fight them.
