A relatively new variety in Russia, although Western vegetable growers claim that it was bred here. "Japanese truffle", so named because of the shape of the fruit, will gain more and more popularity in our country. The hostesses appreciated it for its original taste and good quality. "Japanese truffle" is an indeterminate variety. It is not famous for its high yield - 2-4 kg from 1 bush... The variety is mid-season - ripening period 110-120 days.

When grown in open ground, it can grow up to 1.5 m, in a greenhouse it gives whips up to 2 m. Requires tying and pinching.

The tomato has several varieties, determined by the color of the fruit. There are red, orange, black, pink and gold Japanese truffles. All tomatoes are pear-shaped with a slight ribbing, weight - from 100 to 200 g.

Each of the varieties has its own taste, mainly sweet with sourness and with an individual aftertaste. Japanese golden truffle has a pronounced sweet taste and is often consumed as a fruit. The skin of the fruit is firm, as is the pulp, which makes it suitable for transportation and storage.

The fruits of the "Japanese truffle" are equally well suited for canning and fresh consumption. Many gardeners grow all varieties at home in order to get a beautiful and aesthetic color combination on the table and in jars.

Growing and care advice

The "Japanese truffle" is usually grown in 1-2 stems. It shoots so that 5-6 brushes remain on the stem. 5-7 fruits grow on the hand. Usually 2-3 brushes ripen on the bush, the rest of the fruits are best removed in a state of technical maturity. It grows well in the open field, but it stretches only up to 1.5 m. In the greenhouse, the lash reaches 2 m, which allows you to get a larger crop.

You can compare the yield of the variety with other varieties in the table:

The tomato planting scheme 40 x 40 is the area that will be enough for the full nutrition of the bush. It is planted in the ground at the end of May, respectively, for seedlings two months before, that is, at the beginning of late March - early April. If you plan to grow in a greenhouse, then the seeds must be planted in early March, and can be transferred to the greenhouse as early as May 1. The harvest from the greenhouse begins to be harvested in the second half of June.

There are a huge number of ways to grow tomato seedlings. We bring to your attention a series of articles on how to do this:

  • in twists;
  • in two roots;
  • in peat tablets;
  • without picking;
  • on Chinese technology;
  • in bottles;
  • in peat pots;
  • without land.

The variety tends to wrinkle the brushes, so you need to tie up not only the stem, but also the brushes. Stepchildren are quickly thrown away, it is necessary to remove them in a timely manner. They grow very quickly and are difficult to distinguish from the main stem. The rest of the care of the "Japanese truffle" does not differ from the usual for all tomatoes - watering, loosening, airing (if it grows in a greenhouse) and top dressing.

In addition to the taste and technical qualities of this variety, its advantage is its resistance to cold weather and fungal diseases, especially to late blight - the most unpleasant "tomato" disease.

Try growing your own Japanese Truffle. And let there be a holiday on your table!
