Tomato variety Red Buffalo F1 is recommended for cultivation throughout Russia. Buffalo grows and bears fruit with equal success both in greenhouses and in the open field. Growing and care recommendations are standard:
- Sowing seeds for seedlings is carried out from mid-March to the end of April, depending on climatic conditions and the future habitat of tomato bushes.
- The dive of seedlings is carried out after the appearance of the first pair of true leaves.
- In order to prevent the sprouts from stretching out, the seedlings should be provided with uniform lighting.
- 7-10 days before moving the seedlings to their permanent residence, the bushes should be “walked” in order to harden and facilitate adaptation after transplantation.
- Planting scheme - 3 bushes per 1 sq. m. Due to a denser planting, plants may develop a deficiency of nutrients and sunlight, which will negatively affect fruiting and yield.
- Tall tomatoes need tying and bush formation. You can tie up the bushes 3-4 days after planting in the ground, when they are already sufficiently rooted and stronger.
- The largest tomatoes grow when the bush is formed into one stem, but the formation of two stems is also possible.
- In order to prevent superficial development of the root system, the seedlings should not be watered for the first two weeks after planting. The roots will deepen and become more vigorous, making the plants stronger and more resilient.
- Further, standard methods of care operate: regular watering and loosening of the soil, feeding the plants with organic fertilizers and mineral mixtures, periodically removing the lower leaves and stepchildren.

“The red buffalo is an amazing tomato and a fascinating sight: huge tomatoes hang, and the stem does not even bend under their weight. On the break, a tomato has sugar pulp, and one such tomato is enough for a salad, and there will still be. "
Evgeny Afonin, Chelyabinsk:
“Summer turned out to be rainy and cold, especially at night. But the tomato showed "buffalo stubbornness" and, in spite of everything, pleased us with a rich harvest. "
