Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light. During the winter months we can cover a portion of the soil near the roots with dry leaves or other mulch tissue; in this manner we will protect the plant from the harsh climate.The Tree tomato is a pretty delicate plant, which fears minimum temperatures below 15°C; during late spring it can be cultivated outdoors.
Cultivation Tree tomato
The Tree tomato develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. This plant in the winter assumes a red colouring; it is large in size and can reach 6 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Tree tomato develops like a shrub.
Fertilize Tree tomato
Let’s remember to fertilize our shrubs often; we can fertilize enriching our soil with manure, at the end of the winter; or we can give it a fertilizer for flowering plants, every 20-25 days, when watering. If the shrubs are large or cover a large area, we can use a slow release granular fertilizer, to be used every 3-4 months. In the spring let’s favour fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of a new vegetation and of flowerings.
Water Tree tomato
We suggest watering these plants with 1-2 buckets of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 2-3 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed. Concerning those specimens grown in vases, let's remember that usually they need more watering, compared to the same shrubs placed in the ground. Moreover, they are often more sensible to temperatures, either very high or very low, and to radical apparatus diseases.
Pests Tree tomato
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Mold Tree tomato
These shrubs favour a soft and deep, but well drained soil.
