Balcony tomato varieties

Low-growing dwarf varieties are better suited for growing on the balcony. Tall tomatoes intended for cultivation in greenhouses and greenhouses require special shaping to obtain a good harvest. In addition, they have a powerful root system that requires a lot of soil. In boxes and pots, where balcony tomatoes are usually grown, they do not have enough nutrition for normal growth. But if conditions permit, some tall tomato varieties are quite suitable for a balcony. These are the so-called small-fruited cherry (cherry) and cocktail tomatoes with small, 15 g and 35-40 g, respectively, fruits. Plants of this group are very unpretentious and early (at 75-90 days) enter fruiting.
