  • the color is not monochromatic, with green spots;
  • if the temperature regime is not observed, the peduncles fall off.

Features of planting and growing

Before sowing, the seeds should be sorted out, the spoiled ones should be removed, then treated with a growth stimulator Zircon or Epin.

Prepare the soil before sowing seeds. For this we need:

  • garden land;
  • river sand;
  • peat;
  • mullein;
  • ash.

Mix the prepared soil thoroughly and water it well with a strong manganese solution, warm it up on the stove. We fill the prepared soil in wooden boxes and sow the seeds into grooves 1 cm deep at a distance of 3 cm between the seeds.

The spacing should be not less than 10 centimeters... Sprinkle the grooves evenly with earth, water. Close the drawers on top with glass or foil and put for 5 days in a warm room... The room temperature should be not lower than +24 degrees.

Before sprouting, every day it is necessary to perform aeration of crops... To do this, you need to remove the film for 30 minutes, and if the soil is dry, you need to moisten it. After germination of seeds, the film must be removed and the temperature in the room must be reduced to +20 degrees.

Be sure to carry out during this period lighting control... If the daylight hours are less than 12 hours, you need to install additional lighting. Watering should be regular. If there are 2 leaves on the seedlings, it is necessary to plant them in separate pots.

Planting seedlings in a greenhouse

It is necessary to plant seedlings in a greenhouse 55-60 days after the first shoots appear.

The distance between seedlings in a row should be 35-40 centimeters... Row spacing not less than 1 meter... The ground in the greenhouse must be preheated to +18 degrees.

Care advice

For the full development of trunks and a good harvest, you must adhere to these recommendations:

  1. Need to form a bush from two barrels.
  2. Watering should be moderate... Abundant watering will lead to the fact that the bush will grow large and the fruits will be small.
  3. If the temperature in the greenhouse drops, watering must be reduced or temporarily stopped.
  4. The first feeding should be carried out after the formation of the third brush.
  5. Mineral fertilizers should not be used frequently. This will increase the ripening period of the fruit.
  6. You need to tie up at the initial stage of growth.
  7. Leaves should be trimmed in hot weather. This will help reduce moisture evaporation. Remove only the sheets shading the fruit.
  8. Required regular pinching.
  9. In order for the color of the fruit to be uniform and saturated, it is necessary to carry out potassium-magnesium dressings. Potassium contributes to the uniformity of the color, and magnesium - accelerates the color.

Diseases and pests

This variety has increased stability to the following diseases:

  • tobacco mosaic;
  • cladosporium disease;
  • verticillosis;
  • nematode.

With sufficient lighting and the right temperature, this tomato variety develops immunity to pests and diseases.


On average, from the moment of the first shoots to ripening of the fruits, it takes 90-100 days... The first harvest begins In the end of August... Tomato fruits during this period are of medium size, weighing 170-180 grams.

In the beginning of September ripening begins, or as the gardeners say - the second turn. During this period, the yield is very high and tomatoes ripen almost all at the same time. It is very convenient for processing or bulk supply.

Secrets of maximum fruiting

In order to achieve maximum fruiting, you must:

  1. To plant tomatoes in the greenhouse, use the soil on which they were previously grown cabbage, peas, onions, soybeans, beans.
  2. The moisture content of the soil and air must be balanced. Tomatoes will grow well in humid air and dry soil... After the formation of the third brush, watering should be abundant.
  3. During the period of fruit setting, the soil should be fed with potash and phosphorus fertilizers. This will speed up the ripening of the fruit and ensure an even color.
  4. Particular attention should be paid to the bush - remove stepchildren and tie the stems to the support.

The use of tomatoes

The fruits of the first turn are best eaten fresh or in salad... These fruits have a slightly sour taste. The fruit of the second circle is best used for canning or juicing, pasta or various types of sauces, as they do not lose their properties during heat treatment.

Given its unpretentiousness, minimal susceptibility to diseases and survival in any conditions, the Mahitos variety undoubtedly deserves the attention of gardeners. Follow all recommendations and get a rich harvest.

Even rows of fruit-covered bushes always attract attention in pictures taken on industrial tomato plantations. When choosing Dutch hybrids, you can reproduce what you saw somewhere and at your summer cottage. The spectacular appearance of greenhouse trellises is due to the ability of modern hybrids to give aligned ovaries with the same ripening period on each fruit cluster.

Tomato bush Mahitos F1 (Mojito) is an indeterminate type. These plants can grow to more than 2 m in height. As with any tall tomato, it needs a garter and shaping. Tomatoes in Russian conditions are best grown in a greenhouse, since in the open field they lose their taste and ripen much later than it is regulated by the characteristics and description of the variety according to catalogs.

Mahitos tomatoes are a thermophilic crop that tolerates heat well in a greenhouse. Ovaries and buds do not fall off with slight overheating and drying out, but you need to monitor these factors to get a good harvest. The first harvest should be expected 100-105 days after seed germination.

The fruits are formed throughout the season. Clusters of Mahitos tomatoes are simple on each of them 5-7 identical in size, aligned tomatoes are tied. The average weight of each tomato is 200-210 g. One brush ripens in its entirety, therefore, harvesting is often done with a twig, which allows vegetables to be stored longer.

The yield of the variety is high. From 1 bush it is possible to collect 8-10 kg of marketable products per season. If the cultivation and care technology is violated, the fees fall slightly, and at home this practically does not affect the supply of fresh vegetables to the table.

Mahitos tomatoes are resistant to nematodes and various fungal infections that affect tomatoes in the humid microclimate of greenhouses (Alternaria, peronosporosis, and others). The culture almost does not suffer from late blight, but in order to prevent it, it is recommended to remove part of the leaves and, when watering, do not allow water to enter the aerial parts of the bush.

Tomato cultivar Mahitos f1 - advantages and disadvantages

  • Small internodes are found in strong bushes. Although the bush is tall, it is perfectly balanced.
  • After planting, the seedlings adapt well and begin to grow quickly. The bush instantly forms a branched root system and becomes overgrown with leaves.
  • The variety is resistant to nematodes and cladosporia.
  • Tomatoes are always tied, regardless of the change in the weather mood.

Growing the Mahitos tomato means that the variety must be regularly tied to a trellis and pinned in time. The stems are growing actively, so the grower will not have time to sleep. The foliage below also breaks off. The leaves cover the tomatoes, inhibit their ripening, and steal the nutrients from the bush.

Do not confuse the active growth of the bush and fattening. Because instead of a large number of fruits, you will get a “harvest” of leaves and stems. To prevent the plants from becoming fat, they must be properly looked after.

When the seedlings adapt and begin to grow, there is no need for frequent watering, overfeeding the bushes with mineral fertilizers. Tomatoes, of course, like it all, but the fruits will not set well. Watering must be carried out in moderation, and they must be increased after 3 brushes are formed.

Many gardeners start sowing a hybrid in early February. Reviews of experienced people confirm that the germination of seeds is excellent, the plant germinates in 4-5 days. A light and properly balanced soil is essential for sowing and growing. The soil for tomato bushes is a very important nuance. You can grow excellent vegetables if the soil is slightly acidic (pH - from 6.0-6.8), contains the optimal amount of calcium, potassium, phosphorus and nitrogen. Will not interfere with soil and compost. Gardeners' reviews indicate that a layer of good compost will not damage any tomato garden.

Growing seedlings in a greenhouse begins in April-May, depending on the type of construction prepared and weather conditions. Bushes are placed in 2-3 pieces. one square meter. For effective adaptation of plants, the soil must be well warmed up before planting in the greenhouse. Insufficient heating will shift the fruiting of the vegetable by 7-10 days.

Growing tomatoes is a long process, here it is important to remember the advice of experienced specialists. They suggest not to overmoisten the plant until the third brush appears, otherwise the bush will begin to “fatten” and the ovary will form small.

After the appearance of the third brush, moisture is added, the leaves will increase in size, and in this case large fruits are formed. Work with the sheet must be carried out meaningfully, it can only be cut off during a hot period.
