Tomatoes on my site are always desirable and loved. I have been growing them for quite some time. This year I discovered a new variety of tomato with a very tempting name "Adeline". Seedlings were planted in open ground. I was very worried about the timely watering of the plants, since I work and I do not have so much time to take care of the plants in my country house, only two days a week. Despite this, the tomatoes survived the dry periods of summer very well. I did not feel any problems with growing the variety. The tomato crop made me happy. I mainly use tomatoes for seaming for the winter. The Adeline variety was just perfect for these purposes. The cream-fruits fit perfectly into the jar, without creating difficulties during processing. I recommend it as the most suitable variety for winter harvesting.

Tomatoes are my passion. I really like to eat them fresh, and also pickle them for the winter. In my small area, I always have a place for a tomato. I plant varieties only in open ground, since it is quite problematic to put a greenhouse on a small area. In addition, this activity requires a lot of time and the application of significant physical effort. Tomato "Adeline" has become a real gift for me. The variety is unpretentious, resistant to diseases and even in abnormal heat conditions it gives an excellent harvest of tomatoes. Fruit processing is a pleasure. Vegetables fit perfectly in a three-liter jar, fit snugly together, filling the entire usable space of the jar to the maximum, which is very important. The variety is excellent. Will definitely land it again next year.

I would like to share my personal experience of growing the Adeline tomato variety. I planted it on my site for the first time. This species, according to the manufacturer, is intended for planting in open ground. The bushes are really small in size, quite strong, lush. The variety does not need pinching and garter, which greatly facilitates the titanic work of the gardener. I looked after a tomato of this type as well as for others: I watered, loosened and fertilized with mineral and complex fertilizers. I was pleasantly surprised by the unusual resistance of the plant to late blight. This property is an indisputable advantage in comparison with other types of tomatoes, since it allows you to avoid additional treatments of the plant with pesticides. The fruits are beautiful in appearance, medium in size, like a large plum. The tomatoes are juicy, fleshy and sweet to taste. For seaming, the variety came up just perfect. The yield of the variety is not bad. I recommend it to everyone for growing.
