Important! Do not confuse the Chibis tomato with the similar-sounding Kibitz variety. These tomatoes are similar, but have different ripening times and different origins.

The description of the Chibis tomato variety will be incomplete, if not to say about its unpretentiousness, excellent adaptation to any growing conditions and resistance to the main diseases of tomatoes. It is extremely rarely affected by apical rot and almost does not suffer from late blight.
The agricultural technology of this tomato is not difficult, but it has its own characteristics.
Growing and care
Growing high-quality seedlings is one of the most important components of a full-fledged tomato harvest.
Attention! If the conditions for keeping the seedlings were incorrect, the laying of flower brushes may be delayed, and the plants of the Chibis tomato simply will not be able to show all the yield potential of the variety.
How to grow seedlings
Chibis tomato seeds are sold by several manufacturers. When buying them, pay attention to the seller's reputation, reviews of his product, the time the company is on the seed market. It is best to buy copyright seeds. In such bags, re-grading is excluded, and the quality of the seed will be higher. The purchased seeds are examined and only the largest and plumpest are selected for planting.
Purchased tomato seeds are treated against possible pathogens that may be on their surface. The same must be done with your own seeds, even if the plants from which they were collected were not sick.
You can disinfect tomato seeds Chibis with a traditional solution of potassium permanganate with a concentration of 1%. Withstand them in this case, you need no more than 20 minutes. Rinsing with running water after etching is a mandatory procedure. Good for these purposes and 2 or 3% hydrogen peroxide. It must be dissolved in warm water, so that the temperature is about 40 degrees, and the seeds must be kept for no more than 8 minutes.
The next mandatory stage in the preparation of Chibis tomato seeds is soaking in a growth stimulator. This procedure will speed up the emergence of seedlings and give the seedlings the energy to grow further. Epin, zircon, immunocytophyte are suitable as stimulants. You can also use humates, potato juice or aloe juice. Soaking is carried out no longer than 18 hours. In order to further protect future Chibis tomatoes from such harmful diseases as rot and fusarium wilt, you can powder them before planting with trichodermin biological product powder.
Advice! Sow tomato seeds immediately after soaking.
If there is any doubt about the quality of the seed, the seeds of the Chibis tomato can be germinated. This is most conveniently done on cotton pads. They are moistened and laid out on a flat plate or at the bottom of a plastic container. Seeds are placed on top and covered with the same moistened disc. If the process of germinating seeds is carried out on a plate, it is placed in a plastic bag; it is enough to close the plastic container with a lid. But in any case, the seeds will germinate quickly only in a warm place.
Attention! It is undesirable to use gauze or cloth for germinating tomato seeds. Small roots very quickly penetrate the holes between the threads, and it will be very difficult to release them without damaging them.
As soon as the roots of most of the seeds of the Chibis tomato appear, you can start sowing. If there is enough seed material, only germinated seeds are sown - they will give the largest and strongest shoots. If every seed is dear, you can sow them all. In this case, some of the tomato plants will sprout later and will be slightly weaker, which can be easily corrected with careful care.
Seedlings are planted in specially prepared soil. The best result is obtained by a mixture in equal parts of purchased soil, humus or vermicompost and sand.
Advice! Sand can be replaced with coconut substrate - it not only loosens the soil well, but also retains moisture well.
Chibis tomato seeds are sown to a depth of approximately 2/3 of the seed diameter according to a 2x2 cm scheme. The soil must be moistened. The seeds germinate in the warmth, it is good for this to cover the containers with the seeds with plastic bags. As soon as the first shoots loops appeared, the container is placed in the brightest place with a low temperature, not higher than 14 degrees. After 3-4 days, it is increased and maintained at a level of 20 degrees during the daytime and 17 degrees at night. Correct light conditions are very important. With a lack of light, Chibis tomato seedlings are supplemented with special phytolamps.
When 2 true leaves appear, the seedlings should be cut into separate containers.
Advice! The less the plants are injured during transplantation, the sooner they will start growing. Therefore, we select well-watered tomato seedlings from the container with a teaspoon beforehand, without touching the plant itself with our hands.
Cut tomatoes need shading from bright light for several days.
Further care for Chibis tomato seedlings consists of moderate irrigation with warm, settled water, which are combined every 10 days with dressings with a weak solution of complex mineral fertilizer with microelements.
Attention! Chibis tomatoes should be watered when the topsoil in the cups has dried well. In waterlogged soil, oxygen from the air does not flow to the roots, they can rot, which automatically causes blackening and death of the stem.
Chibis tomato is ready for planting at the age of 45 days. A good seedling has 5 to 7 true leaves and the first flower cluster emerging. In order for tomato seedlings to easily adapt to new conditions during transplantation, it must be accustomed to them gradually, that is, hardened. They begin to do this 2 weeks before disembarkation: they are taken out into the open air, first for an hour, and then the residence time is gradually increased. If the night temperature does not drop below 14 degrees Celsius, it can be left to spend the night outside.
Warning! Do not forget to shade young tomatoes from the sun for the first few days.
Chibis tomatoes are planted when the soil warms up to 15 degrees Celsius. In colder soil, plant roots do not absorb all the nutrients. Planted tomatoes are shaded from the sun for 3-4 days. Wells before planting are well spilled with water with the addition of humate - one teaspoon in a bucket of water. The first week after planting, the Chibis tomatoes are not watered so that they grow suction roots well. Then you will need regular weekly watering with warm water at the rate of 10 liters per square meter. the optimal time for watering is 3 hours before sunset. During the flowering and formation of the crop, the Chibis tomato variety is watered 2 times a week, observing the same norms.
Warning! Watering tomatoes is carried out only at the root, preventing drops of water from falling on the leaves, so as not to provoke the development of fungal diseases.
Chibis tomatoes are fed once a decade with a soluble complex fertilizer, increasing the potassium rate during flowering and crop formation.
Chibis tomato is unpretentious and requires minimal shaping. Usually all stepchildren growing under the first flower brush are removed. If you want to get an early harvest, you can form a bush into one stem, removing all stepchildren, but in this case you will not get a large harvest. In order for the lower brushes to sing faster, the bush needs to be lightened. To do this, after the complete formation of the fruit brush, remove all the lower leaves under it. The operation should be carried out in several stages so as not to weaken the plant.
Attention! Never shaping a lapwing tomato in wet weather. This can lead to an outbreak of late blight.

Our climate is harsh, frosts end late and start early. But some varieties of tomatoes ripen outdoors. And among them Chibis. I plant only the third year. I have to form it quite hard, so I collect the first 2 brushes in red, and I ripen the rest. Maybe there are earlier varieties, but this one is very good in salting and ripe and green.

I have been helping my grandmother in the garden for a long time. She used to plant old varieties of tomatoes, but they hurt a lot. Persuaded to plant several new ones. She liked Chibis the most. Tomatoes are neat and easy to cut into a salad, and they are delicious in the marinade. We will expand the range of modern varieties.
