The leaves are large, dark green, of the usual form for a tomato, sparse. Inflorescence of a simple type.

Characteristic varieties Batyan
Tomato Batian has the following features:
- Early fruit ripening, which is a big advantage. The period from the appearance of seedlings to the start of ripening is only 90 days. But if the climatic conditions are far from ideal, then it can be slightly delayed and amount to 105 days.
- Stretched fruiting period. After removing the first crop, new fruit brushes appear and fruits are tied. But this process needs to be controlled. Toward the end of the growing season, the top should be pinched so that the fruits that are set do not pull on nutrients and allow the already formed to mature safely.
- High yield. Regarding this feature, the opinions of sources differ. Only 2 kg from 1 m² are indicated in the State Register. But, given the size of the bush and the large-fruited tomato, this is too low, even in open ground. Other sources, including the creators of the variety, provide other information:
- in open ground - from 6 to 12 kg with 1 m²;
- in the greenhouse - 17 kg with 1 m².
- Resistance to many diseases, primarily to late blight.
- The ability to use fruits in salads. They also make great juice, tomato paste, lecho. A meaty slice can be put on a sandwich. In general, the variety cannot be preserved due to its size.
- Undemanding to weather conditions. Tomato easily adapts to climate change, withstanding cooling and rising temperatures. But, of course, this will affect the overall yield.
- Good transportability due to dense pulp.

Features of growing tomato
A feature of the Siberian Batyan is its excellent plasticity, which allows this tomato to be grown in open ground, under film shelter and in greenhouse conditions. Of course, different climatic conditions dictate their landing methods. So, in warm regions, seeds can be safely sown on a bed. But the conditions of cool and cold areas will allow you to get a good harvest only when planting seedlings.
Before sowing the seeds are treated in the usual way. Sow tomato in soil warmed up to + 15 ° С. Usually in warm regions, such conditions develop in late April - early May. If the time has come, but the soil is not warm enough, you can make a removable greenhouse, which is easy to ventilate and can be removed from the garden at any time.
The film shelter will create conditions under which the seeds will sprout quickly
Sowing seeds for seedlings is an indispensable condition when growing Batyan in harsh climates. Many southern gardeners also prefer this method. But do not rush to grow seedlings, consider the features of your place of residence. In warm climates, you can sow seeds in mid-February. In cool areas a little later - in late February or early March. Well, in regions with a short summer - and at all at the end of March. So that the beginning and end of the growing season coincides with weather conditions and allows you to collect the maximum yield, seedlings should be planted in the soil at the age of 65–70 days.
Seedling method is extremely popular, as it allows you to get a good harvest even in cold regions
In the non-chernozem zone of Russia, for example, seedlings are planted in early June, which means that seeds are sown in late March or early April.
If the seedlings are intended for open ground, and the weather still does not allow leaving the plants without shelter, a film construction is installed over the garden bed. It is periodically ventilated to maintain normal moisture levels.
Do not forget that the seedling method of growing necessarily requires picking and hardening.
Tomato seedlings need to be prepared before planting in open ground
Crop rotation and soil preparation
Variety Batya prefers well-drained and light soil compositions with moisture permeability. This is due to the fact that the root system of a tall bush is not so powerful. In heavy and excessively moist soil, it will simply die.
If the soil on the site does not meet the required standards, when digging, add coarse sand, sawdust and humus to it.
The predecessors in the garden should be plants that do not accumulate diseases dangerous for tomato:
After growing solanaceous crops (eggplant, pepper, potato), the soil should rest for a year, or even 2 years.
Planting scheme and bush formation
Planting scheme for indeterminate varieties - 40/50 cm. In total, 3-4 plants should be on 1 m². Father form in 1 or 2 stems. The second option is the most common, as it allows you to increase productivity. Form the second stem from the stepson, located above the first flower brush. All stepsons on the shoots must be removed.
Tomato Batyan most often form in 2 stems
The variety must be tied up, otherwise the fragile stems will break under the weight of the ripening fruit. Moreover, the garter is best done in the first week after planting seedlings.

The lower leaves, of course, need to be broken off to form a trunk and provide the bush with good ventilation. But you need to do this in different ways, including the growing conditions:
- yellow leaves with drying edges or stained leaves are subject to immediate removal;
- in open ground, when there is intense heat, the lower leaves help to shade the soil, retaining moisture in it;
- in conditions of high humidity, in wet and rainy weather, or when growing in a greenhouse, lower leaves must be removed, which will help to prevent late blight and other fungal infections.
So that the lower leaves do not delay food, they are removed
Water the Batyana tomato sparingly, but at the same time, make sure that the soil under the bush does not dry out, but is sufficiently moistened. Due to excess moisture, the ripening fruits will burst. If the summer is very hot and dry, you will have to water more often, sometimes every 4–5 days. Try to moisturize only with warm water so that the roots do not suffer from sudden changes in temperature.Recent entries In April, I process roses so that no pests encroach on my beauties

How do I protect seedlings from my curious cats
The best way to water is drip. It protects the leaves and the stem from falling drops of water. And so that the moisture does not evaporate too quickly, loosen the soil after watering and use the mulch.
Drip irrigation is considered the most acceptable when watering tomatoes
Feeding is carried out 2 times a month. The most successful combination of minerals that affect the quality and quantity of the crop is nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium in conjunction with other trace elements. The most suitable fertilizers are:
These fertilizers are applied in the form of a solution to pre-moistened soil to avoid burns to the root system.
In addition, the Father does not mind eating organic matter. Especially useful will be green fertilizer, which is easy to prepare with your own hands. For this, weed grass collected on the site, for example, nettle, is useful. It is recommended to add wood ash to the prepared infusion.
Many gardeners in vain ignore foliar top dressing. Minerals absorbed by leaves allow the plant to be nourished much faster than regular root top dressing. Such top dressing can be performed with a solution of Kemira. But remember that the foliar method is carried out with a very weak solution, preferably in the evening.
