Anastasia, 33 years old:
“Gardening has been my hobby for the past few years. I recently turned my eyes to yellow varieties of tomatoes and try to experiment every year. An annoying nuisance struck the Golden Age last year. The pallet with the seedlings fell and the bushes were badly damaged. Despite the misunderstanding and dry summer, the variety pleased with its yield, and on average 4.5 kg of yellow large tomatoes were removed from one plant.

“I can only say one thing about the yellow tomato variety - super. 5 kg of tomatoes were removed from each bush, which is considered almost impossible in our climate. Tomatoes have a rich taste and a lemon-yellow hue, which looks very unusual in salads. "
