In this article we will try to figure out what features this variety has. We will also find out how to properly grow these tomatoes and take care of the plants.
Characteristics of the variety
Tomato variety "Logane f1" is a medium early tomato with high resistance to hot temperatures. This variety was bred in Holland back in 1938. In our market seeds of tomatoes "Logane f1" appeared not so long ago and have not yet had time to gain great popularity. These tomatoes are specially designed for growing in particularly hot regions. Therefore, residents of the southern regions of the country can safely buy seeds and seedlings of this variety.
Lozhain f1 fruits have a smooth, even skin of dark red color. The pulp of the tomato is quite dense and fleshy. Each fruit has a beautiful round shape and weighs at least 160 grams. Individual fruits can grow up to 200 grams. Tomatoes keep well after harvest. Thanks to this, the fruits can be safely transported over long distances. In addition, the variety has an attractive appearance and good commercial qualities. These tomatoes are suitable for industrial cultivation and for home consumption.
The bushes are quite powerful and sturdy. The root system is well developed. The plant can support the weight of large fruits, the branches do not break. Of course, like other tall varieties, the Logane f1 tomato must be tied up so that the plant does not sink to the ground. The green mass is very well developed, the leaves reliably protect the fruits from the hot sun. Thanks to this, tomatoes can easily tolerate even the most intense heat.
Attention! From planting seedlings to full ripening of the fruits, it takes from 60 to 70 days.
According to reviews, about 9 kg of ripe fruits can be harvested from one Lodge f1 tomato. The taste of tomatoes is at a high level. They can be consumed fresh and after heat treatment. Such fruits are perfect for preparing blanks for the winter.
The breeders managed to combine in the variety not only excellent taste and heat resistance, but also high resistance to various diseases. For example, the Lodge f1 tomato variety boasts a high immunity to top rot and fusarium. Tomatoes are also not threatened with verticillary wilting. In addition, they have good resistance to yellow curl. All this greatly facilitates the care of plants. Gardeners will not have to carry out endless disease prevention.
Description of the variety "Logane f1" shows that the plants grow and thrive in open beds. However, no one forbids growing tomatoes in prepared greenhouses, this will only increase the yield and facilitate the care of the bushes.
As usual, the Logane f1 tomatoes can be grown in two ways:
- seedling method;
- in a reckless way.
Both the first and second options have their own advantages and disadvantages. Let's take a look at everything in order. For the seedless method, only determinate tomato varieties are suitable. Tomato "Logjane f1" is one of those. This means that its growth is limited and the plants can be planted at a short distance from each other. In this case, the bushes are planted in rows or staggered. There must be at least 30 cm between the plants.
The prepared seeds are planted immediately on the garden bed. Pre-soil for planting tomatoes is disinfected with hot water. 5 seeds are placed in the dug holes. They are covered with a small layer of earth (up to 2 cm), and then watered with warm water. Each seed hole must be covered with a glass jar on top. But a regular plastic bottle is also suitable, from which the top is previously cut off. Further, arcs are installed over the garden bed and everything is covered with polyethylene.
Important! After the seeds have sprout, it will be necessary to thin out the tomatoes. Leave one plant per hole (maximum - 2).
The second method is more popular - seedling. In this case, you need to prepare the seedlings in advance at home, and only then plant them on the site. The seedlings need time to fully develop. Therefore, you will have to sow seeds 2 months before the expected date of planting. However, this method still saves time. In the open field, seedlings will grow and yield a harvest much faster than seeds planted in a garden.
To grow strong tomato seedlings, it is necessary to create all the necessary conditions. Young growths need plenty of sunlight and the right temperature. And also you should carry out regular fertilizing with mineral fertilizers. With this care, the plants will be much stronger and will give a generous harvest in the future. In warm regions, this variety can be planted in greenhouses as early as late March - early April.
Tomato seedlings are planted in open ground a little later. It all depends on the heating of the soil, its temperature should be at least 15 ° C. It is also necessary to take a responsible approach to the choice of the site. It should be flat and protected from northerly winds. Tomatoes grow well only in fertile soil. To do this, you should pre-fertilize with organic and mineral fertilizers.
Attention! Before planting tomatoes in the selected area, you can have time to grow a radish or salad.
Since the Lodge f1 tomato variety is medium-sized, it is planted at a distance of about 40 cm from each other. About 50 cm should be left between the rows. This distance will be enough so that the bushes do not shade each other. In this case, you do not need to cover the seedlings. This method is more economical, since you do not have to spend time and money on the construction of the shelter.
Experienced gardeners' reviews prove that caring for the Lodge f1 tomato variety is not difficult at all. It is necessary to carry out regular loosening of the soil for a better supply of oxygen. And also, as needed, watering of the bushes is carried out. The most important and responsible thing is to correctly feed the tomatoes for the best yield.
Top dressing of tomatoes is carried out according to the following scheme:
- The first feeding is necessary at the beginning of June during the active growth of the plant. For this, 500 ml of cow dung, micronutrient fertilizers (two tablets), nitrophoska (a tablespoon), boric acid (a small spoon) are combined in one container. All this is dissolved in 10 liters of water and the bushes are watered. One liter of fertilizer is enough for each plant.
- The second feeding of tomatoes is carried out a month after the first. Again, we take 10 liters of water, micronutrient fertilizers (two large spoons), potassium sulfate (large spoon). The required amount for one bush is a liter of the finished mixture.
- Before the beginning of fruiting, a third feeding is carried out. To do this, use ammonium nitrate (five grams), superphosphate (about 20 grams), potassium chloride (4 grams). All this is dissolved in water. This amount is enough to irrigate 1 square meter of land.
Attention! It is better to introduce organic matter in the fall during the digging of the site. For these purposes, compost and manure are suitable.

I was looking for an early variety of tomatoes for my summer cottage. I came across a description of the "Logane f1" variety on the Internet. None of my friends have ever grown these tomatoes. I took a chance and ordered a package of seeds. I grew the seedlings on my own. The bores quickly got stronger and grew well before transplanting. I transplanted seedlings into the ground at the end of April. The bushes do not grow very tall, but a lot of fruits are formed. Very happy with my purchase.
