On the forums about the tomato Empress

Andrey, Nizhny Novgorod

The Empress didn't like the taste of the tomato. I planted it last year. One word is hybrid. The pulp is very tough. It tastes unpleasantly fibrous and tasteless when eaten. The bushes turned out to be productive, the whole crop was used for harvesting. We have already tried pickled ones, but no one liked their taste either.

Tina, Togliatti

Grown this summer in a greenhouse a few bushes and 4 in the open field. The bushes in the ground were 1.6 m each, greenhouse bushes were noticeably higher. I was not satisfied with the taste of tomatoes, neither fresh nor pickled. If tomatoes cooked in their own juice could still be eaten, then in a simple marinade they were absolutely not tasty. But we must pay tribute to the yield, the hybrid's yield is simply excellent, and no diseases were observed.

Olga, Kazan

The description of the fruits from SeDec convinced me when choosing seeds. I love small cream with firm pulp and firm skin. The Empress's fruits paid off, many small, tight tomatoes of almost the same size grew. Most of them took off in green, they matched well in boxes, there were no lethargic and shriveled ones.

Nikolay, Chelyabinsk

I plant the Empress for harvesting, and for food I prefer to plant a large-fruited variety - the Queen of the Market. Sometimes I trade in the market, my crimson-pink fruits of the Queen always go with a bang with the townspeople. One fruit can weigh 400 g. There is nothing to say about the taste - the royal one. My characteristic is an excellent variety.


Try growing some Empress bushes in your garden. It is quite possible that the yield and disease resistance will justify the slight taste flaws of this hybrid. Share your experience in growing yielding cream.
