I would like to share my personal experience of growing Iceberg tomato. I grow tomatoes of this variety in the open field. Special efforts are not required when leaving, the main thing is to water, loosen the soil and fertilize the plant on time. My harvest is always excellent. Each tomato is dense, beautifully rounded and deep red in color, one in one, just like in the picture. I also really like the fruit to taste. I'm happy with the variety. I plant it regularly and advise everyone.

The Iceberg variety has become a real discovery for me. Thanks to him, I no longer suffer every year with the installation and shelter of the greenhouse, which is important at my age. Children cannot always help me with the housework, so I have to rely only on my own strength. Growing tomatoes in the garden for me is the most optimal and physically less expensive way. The plant is unpretentious, it tolerates all the vagaries of nature well and annually pleases me with a bountiful harvest. Now I plant only this tomato variety. The result is always excellent. Delicious juice and ketchup are obtained from this tomato variety, and it is also very convenient to use it for preparing preparations for the winter.
