TOMATO VARIETIES

Throughout the world we can find a wide variety of tomatoes  to grow and bring to the table. When growing them, we must establish criteria related to the results we expect from our cultivation (taste, production, resistance to diseases, etc.) For this reason, at Gardenprue we gather the best known and classify them. Go for it!

 

The criteria that dominate in the production of the new tomato varieties are the following.

    • High productions
    • Disease resistance
    • Resistance to water salinity
    • Ease of cultivation
    • Precocity
    • External appearance: shape, color and homogeneity
    • Tasting qualities
