Soil Requirements for Planting
Growing this hybrid and soil requirements are not distinguished by special requirements. However, with optimal moisture and fertilizer yields are significantly increased. Nevertheless, over-wetting the soil is undesirable , even considering the low probability of getting fusarium.

Despite the short stature and shtambovy type of growth of the bush he still need garter , becausethe stem is not able to withstand the load of a large number of large fruits.

Even in conditions of high humidity, diseases occur extremely rarely, but when grown in a greenhouse, requires regular ventilation and sometimes preventive treatment of .
