Tomato Kaspar was born in the Netherlands. In Russia, the culture is still not as popular as at home, however, fame for this vegetable is already coming, thanks to its positive qualities.
Features of the variety
To the characteristics and description of the Kaspar tomato variety, we will certainly refer to a not very long ripening time. If it is greenhouse cultivation, then it is about three months, and if it is open land - a month more. In the south of Russia, among lovers of summer cottages and vegetable gardens, these tomatoes are already ripening in the first summer month. And what is especially interesting - the appearance of fruits continues in the autumn.
Also, the described vegetable is fertile: one bush can give about one and a half kilograms of tomatoes, which are used in any dishes. The fruits are optimal, according to experienced summer residents and housewives, for various types of salting, drying and canning. Therefore, in our country, this variety is loved for its versatility, pleasant taste and yield, amounting to up to ten kilograms per square meter.
We characterize the fruits
If you grow this culture correctly, then you will get fruits rich in lekopin, beta-carotene, sugars, which create a positive effect on human health.
Summer residents also began to actively cultivate this variety for its original and aesthetic appearance. Outwardly, the description of the fruit comes down to the shape of a bell pepper with a cute sharp nose at the tip of a tomato, reminiscent of a New Year's ball.
So, the main features of the fruits of the Kaspar tomato are:
- Elongated shape with a characteristic spout.
- Light green shade of unripe tomatoes and orange-red - ripe ones.
- On average, a tomato weighs 100 g, has a slight sourness and a characteristic tomato flavor.
- Small-chamber type tomatoes with 2-3 nests.
- The skin is firm and rough, but peels off easily, which is recommended when used in fresh salads.
- The pulp of the fruit is dense and fleshy. Therefore, even without the skin, they do not deform and do not spread in dishes.
- Each vegetable has 3-4 seed chambers for accumulating seeds for future planting.
If you study the reviews of those who have already cooked vegetables of this variety, then we note that "Kaspar" is considered one of the best for cooking canned tomatoes in its own juice and assorted vegetables. In addition, storage, handling and cracking problems are not expected with these tomatoes.
The use of the fruits of the described variety is possible in any kind of canned food and salting, as well as in combination with other crops, for example, peppers. However, tomatoes come out especially well in their own juice, thanks to their taste and meatiness.
Planting, watering and feeding tomato
Hybrid "Caspar F1" is well resistant to verticillus and fusarium wilt, therefore chemical treatment of plantings with drugs is not required. Planting in the ground assumes fertile soil, saturated with air and water. And then basic care follows - loosening the earth, weeding, regular removal of stepchildren and watering.
This variety likes frequent and abundant watering. For these purposes, warm, well-settled water is used. It must be observed that there is no stagnation of moisture in the soil. In terms of feeding, attention should be paid to fertilizers containing phosphorus and potassium, which are used during the entire period of growth and appearance of fruits. The first ovary is a sign of fertilizing for the first time, and then on a regular basis three more times.
As for the regional peculiarities of growing "Kaspar" tomatoes, it is possible throughout Russia, in the north - in greenhouses and under the film, and in the south - on open land. Those who planted this variety know that its height in open soil is half a meter, and in greenhouse conditions it is twice as large.
It should be remembered about the correct crop rotation. Planting on soil with nightshade predecessors is not recommended. For tomatoes, the optimal soil will be the one where turnips, radishes, onions and carrots previously grew.

The description of the variety testifies to its significant advantages:
- The culture is unpretentious and resistant to the external environment;

- Does not have serious diseases, for example, fusarium, verticillosis, late blight.
Even a novice gardener can get a harvest, you just need to follow the standard set - weeding, watering and fertilizing. And when the bushes are inclined to the ground, they should be tied to the base of the greenhouse or placed next to a stick to bind to it.
Reviews of people say that the disadvantages are a fairly thick skin and taste with sourness. Some do not like the taste, others immediately get rid of the skin, and there are those who prefer them fresh.
