Tomato Visibly invisible - super-yielding undersized variety
Breeders do not stop working on the creation of new varieties of tomatoes, characterized by high productivity. For gardeners who consider the fertility of tomatoes to be a decisive factor, one of the newest varieties of Apparently Invisible is suitable. By its very name, this tomato promises unprecedented yields.
Variety characteristics Visibly invisible
Tomato variety Apparently invisibly appeared recently - it passed variety testing in 2016, and was listed in the State Register in 2018 (although seeds on sale appeared back in 2002-2004). It is allowed for cultivation in all regions of Russia both in open and in protected ground. The originator of the variety is the Russian agricultural firm Aelita.
Tomato belongs to early ripening varieties (85-100 days from the moment of emergence of shoots) and is intended mainly for the preparation of salads.

The appearance of the plant
The variety is determinant, that is, limited in growth: in open ground conditions it reaches 0.5–0.6 m, and in greenhouse cultivation it reaches 1 m. Bushes have a high ability to shoot formation. The foliage of the plants is medium, the leaves are short, dark green in color. Rounded fruits with a weakly ribbed surface are formed on the stalks with joints. Unripe fruits are colored light green with darker spots.
Coloring unripe fruits light green
When ripening, the color of the fruit changes to bright red.

Strong skin hides a rather dense pulp. Fruits are medium in size (150–180 g). There are many seed chambers in each tomato - 6 or more. The sweetish-sour taste of the pulp is rated as good .
The average weight of the fetus is 150-180 g
Positive and negative qualities of a tomato. Visibly invisible.
If you analyze the reviews of gardeners who cultivated this variety, you can find the following advantages of tomato:
- compact bushes;
- productivity is very high (from one bush to 4-5 kg, from 1 m2 - up to 15 kg);
- dense skin does not crack, including during heat treatment;
- the fruits have good keeping quality and transportability;
- good resistance to diseases and pests.
The disadvantage of the variety can be considered "finicky" to agricultural technology.
A distinctive feature of the variety is the ability to very early formation of the first fruit brush - after the 4th true leaflet. To continue further growth and development of the bush, it is necessary to transfer the growth point to the most powerful stepson.
Unlike most undersized determinant tomatoes, Apparently invisibly needs to be stepson.
A lot of undersized tomatoes are now grown, so let's compare some of them with the Apparently Invisible variety.

|Agatha||98–113||80-100||5-7||Susceptibility to late blight|
|Baskak||109–115||60–65||5||Particular resistance to late blight|
Planting and growing rules
Tomatoes Apparently invisibly grown in seedlings. Seeds can be bought or prepared independently (in this case, they are pickled with potassium permanganate before planting and treated with a growth stimulator, for example, aloe juice).
Seeds for seedlings should be sown in mid-March - early April. As a container, sliding containers or peat cups are best suited.
Special containers make seedling growing easier
The selected dishes are filled with soil (chernozem with humus or purchased soil), moistened and planted seeds to a depth of 1-1.5 cm in increments of 5-6 cm. The seeded containers are tightened with polyethylene and cleaned in a warm dark room. A week later, when the sprouts appear, you need to remove the film and put the seedlings in a bright room. The required temperature during the day is 22 ... 26 ° C, at night 17 ... 18 ° C. For normal development, at least 12-14 hours of lighting per day are required, so it may be necessary to re-light with a phytolamp.
The phytolamp creates the spectrum necessary for the development of plants
It is required to water seedlings when the soil dries (every 4–5 days) with cold water. It is not necessary to feed seedlings with normal development, and with weak growth, a solution of Nitrofoski will help.
After the appearance of the 2nd true leaf, the plants are dived in 0.5 l containers.

Permanently planted tomatoes are transferred to a place approximately 50-60 days after germination. Before transplanting, plants should be quenched to the street.

The precursors of tomatoes should be carrots, cabbage, green onions, garlic, herbs.
Landing is carried out according to the same rules as for other varieties. Planting density for tomatoes. Apparently invisibly recommended 3 shrubs per 1 square meter .
The variety is demanding for watering, so water must be served regularly according to the following scheme:
- before flowering, weekly watering is required at the rate of 3.5-4 liters per 1 bush;
- with the onset of ovary formation, water should be supplied 2 times a week, 3–3.5 liters per bush;
- as soon as the fruits begin to fill, you should return to the original mode of water supply.
After precipitation or watering, you need to loosen the soil (depth 5-6 cm) and make minerals. To preserve moisture, it is better to mulch the soil with mowed grass.
Top dressing is very important for the variety. Before flowering, it is recommended to water with mullein, and from the beginning of flowering - phosphorus and potassium fertilizing (30 g of potassium sulfate and superphosphate per bucket of water). When cooling, tomatoes need to be supported by foliar treatments with solutions of mineral fertilizers (Solution, Kristalon). You can use nettle infusion with the addition of ash or yeast.
Since the growth of the main stem stops after the formation of four fruit brushes, the bushes must be kept in several stems (from 2 to 4). Apparently invisibly forms a lot of stepsons and the extra need to be cleaned every week . Due to the high yield, the stems can break, so tomatoes need support (wooden stakes, metal rods).
To prevent breakage of the stem, it must be tied to a peg
In my opinion, when growing tomatoes, the most important thing is good care. During the summer period, 2-3 times (after watering) I hush up bushes to a stem height of 10-12 cm. To reduce the number of weeds and loosening, I regularly cover the soil with mulch (suitable ashes, vegetable peelings, used tea leaves). Mulching nettles will help get rid of aphids and slugs at the same time. You need to constantly remember about top dressing. I feed my tomatoes 3 times - for the first time with urea with a nitrofoam (a tablespoon per bucket of water), and then with complex fertilizers. If the weather is cloudy, you need to give the plants more potassium, and in sunny weather - urea. Tomatoes lagging in growth, well "encourages" spraying with urea (20 g per bucket of water).
Pest and disease protection
Typically, a tomato is apparently invisibly ill very little. Of course, with thickened plantings, humidity increases, and, accordingly, the risk of fungal diseases (columnar, spotting, late blight) . The treatment with fungicides - Fitosporin, Ridomil, Horus, Topaz - helps with these diseases. Before processing, it is necessary to remove diseased leaves and fruits.
Of the pests, a spider mite, a bear, slugs, aphids can attack tomatoes. From most pests, broad-spectrum insecticides will help, for example, Malathion (60 g per bucket of water), Sichlor (solution at a concentration of 0.25%), Actellik (1 ampoule per 2 liters of water), Inta-C-M (1 tablet per half a bucket of water).
Decking will help to expel soil treatment with metal hydride, ground iron sulfate or tobacco dust. Pollination of the soil around the bushes with a mixture of bleach and ash (in a ratio of 1: 4) is considered very effective. You can destroy slugs and mechanically.
Chemical treatments of plantings should be stopped 20–25 days before harvesting.
Prevention of both diseases and pests is the removal of weeds and compliance with other rules of agricultural technology.
Harvesting and its use
The crop begins to ripen in July, and the last fruits are harvested in September. Although apparently invisibly considered a salad variety, these tomatoes are excellent for preservation. For full-preservation, you need to wait for the end of the season, when the fruits are smaller . Tomatoes of this variety are very good for making juice, ketchup and various snacks.
