Distinctive features

The variety is recommended for cultivation in open ground and under a film cover. The bush is rapidly gaining growth, reaching a meter in length. This requires the installation of a support and a garter. Pinching is also carried out to the first brush.

Growing tomatoes is carried out in seedlings. The peculiarity of the variety lies in the ability to set fruit even in adverse weather conditions.

The variety was bred by Siberian breeders. As a result of their labors, a plant with hypoallergenic properties and delicious taste was obtained.

The average weight of a tomato grown in a greenhouse reaches 700 g. Fruits weighing 300-400 g are considered record holders in open-ground beds. Among the giants, the Golden Queen occupies a leading position. With proper care, 6-10 kg of selected tomatoes are removed from one bush.

How to grow seedlings

Sowing the seeds of the Golden Queen directly on the beds is not done. First you need to grow seedlings. To do this, you should prepare a container of the appropriate volume, planting material and soil mixture.


You can use planting material both purchased and prepared with your own hands. The store option is preferable, since the seeds have already been processed. They only need to be soaked just before planting. It is important to prepare harvested seeds:

  1. sort (select only large specimens without deformations and damage);
  2. test for germination in a saline solution (for 100 ml of water 5 g of sodium chloride);
  3. disinfect (in a weak solution of potassium permanganate);
  4. treat with a growth stimulant (Epin, Zircon).

Seeds of the Golden Queen variety


The seed develops well in loose, fertile soil. You can use a universal soil or prepare a soil mixture from the following components:

  • garden land (part 1);
  • peat (2 parts);
  • humus (0.5 parts);
  • coarse sand (0.5 parts);
  • wood ash (1 glass);
  • fertilizer based on 10 kg of soil (15 g of potassium ingredient, 10 g of urea, 30 g of superphosphate).

Reference! Garden or vegetable garden soil before mixing with other components should be calcined in the oven for disinfection. You can also pour boiling water over it.


For growing seedlings, wooden boxes, plastic containers, disposable cups, etc. are used. The height of the container should not be less than 15 cm. Holes are made in the bottom part so that excess moisture has a place to drain. Before filling with the substrate, a layer of expanded clay or perlite is poured onto the bottom to create drainage.


The prepared soil is moistened and allowed to settle for a couple of hours. Then the surface is slightly loosened, grooves are formed with a depth of 1 cm, seeds are laid at a distance of 3-4 cm. The same interval is observed between the grooves.

After sowing, the container is covered with transparent polyethylene or glass. You need to put the disembarkation in a warm room (average temperature 25 °). Every day, the film is removed for half an hour for airing. As the soil dries up, it is moistened with a spray bottle.

Shoots appear in about 4-7 days. From this moment, you need to remove the shelter, and put the container in a cooler place (the temperature should be 18-20 ° first, then 14-16 °). Young shoots need good lighting. Daylight hours should be 12-16 hours.

When irrigating seedlings, do not allow water to get on the greens.

The first top dressing is administered 2-3 weeks after germination. For these purposes, organics or special humic formulations are ideal.

A pick is done after 2-3 true leaves are formed on the shoots. Each sprout, together with an earthen lump, is transferred into disposable cups. After 2-3 weeks, a second pick is performed, but already in a larger container.

How to grow tomatoes

The seedlings are transferred to the open ground after the threats of night frosts have passed. The seedlings are transferred to the greenhouse after they reach a height of 25-35 cm. By this time, 8-10 true leaves are formed on the shoots, the root system is well developed. A couple of weeks before planting, the seedlings are taken outside for hardening. The procedure is carried out daily with a gradual increase in time from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Ripe yellow tomatoes


The beds are divided according to the scheme: 70x70 cm. The bushes of an adult plant are spreading, so you should not thicken the planting. This will make it harder to leave. For quick adaptation of seedlings and intensive growth, you need to prepare the soil. In addition to disinfection, it will need to be enriched with fertilizer, sand and peat if there is an increased density.

Water is first poured into the prepared holes, after which the seedling is installed. With gentle movements, they bury it, slightly pressing the soil. After irrigation, the beds are slightly loosened and covered with mulch.


Further care is in accordance with the standard rules of agricultural technology. There are some nuances regarding bush shaping and pinching. Information is presented in the table.

Tomato care activities



Features of the


1-2 p. per week, in case of heat daily

Irrigation should be started from 3-5 days after planting. Further, the mode is set taking into account the degree of soil moisture.

Weeding, loosening

Once every 2 weeks or as needed

Loosening is done after watering to avoid crust formation. Weeds attract parasites, provoke the development of the fungus. It is advisable to combine both procedures to save time.



Carried out up to the first flower brush.

Bush shaping


The bush is formed in 1-2 stems.



It is carried out to the support in several stages as the bush grows.

Top dressing

After planting, make 3 times.

1st time 10 days after planting (mixture of mullein 0.5 l and nitrophoska 15 ml per bucket of water);

2nd time in 3 weeks. (mineral fertilizers with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium);

3rd time in 2 weeks. (potassium-phosphorus composition)

Features of cultivation and possible difficulties

After planting, the seedling is rapidly gaining growth. If the plant develops poorly, you need to introduce nitrogen fertilizers. It is also important to adjust the watering.

During the flowering period of potatoes, garden crops are affected by the Colorado potato beetle. He often takes a liking to tomato bushes, which can lead to the destruction of the planting. To prevent the problem, it is recommended to regularly inspect the beds in order to identify beetles or larvae. If a large population is found, insecticide treatment should be performed.

The greatest difficulties arise with stepchildren. Almost weekly, they need to be removed so that the bush is properly formed. You will also need to pay attention to the garter. Otherwise, under the influence of winds or under the weight of pouring fruits, the branches will break.

Diseases and pests

The Golden Queen tomato is characterized by strong immunity. Resistance manifests itself to common nightshade diseases. As a prophylaxis against tobacco mosaic, late blight, fusarium wilt, it is recommended to carry out the following measures:

  1. disinfect the surfaces of the greenhouse and the soil before planting (using a solution of potassium permanganate or copper sulfate);
  2. spray the beds with late blight remedies (copper-containing drugs);
  3. regularly ventilate the greenhouse, avoiding drafts;
  4. weeding and loosening the soil;
  5. lay a layer of mulch on the ground to protect the soil from drying out.

Plants need to be systematically inspected for pests. The following parasites are dangerous to disembarkation:

  • whitefly;
  • thrips;
  • slugs;
  • aphid;
  • bear.

When insects or products of their vital activity are detected, it becomes necessary to spray the beds with the use of insecticides. You can get rid of the Colorado potato beetle by manually collecting the larvae and adults. If this does not help, they resort to processing tomatoes with special means.

The nuances of growing in open ground and in a greenhouse

Tomato of the Russian selection Zolotaya Koroleva is intended for growing in a greenhouse. In warm regions, it is successfully cultivated in the open field. If you choose the under cover option, the following guidelines should be considered.

  1. You can improve the root system of tomatoes by enriching the soil with oxygen and nitrogen. Nitrogen compounds are applied before the flowering period. Later, potash-phosphorus fertilizers are used. You can open access to oxygen by loosening or planting between rows of legumes.
  2. The palatability of the fruit is improved if basil is planted around the perimeter of the tomato beds. Tomatoes will acquire a brighter aroma and richer taste.
  3. To prevent infection with fungal diseases, it is recommended to ventilate the greenhouse daily. But at the same time, it is important to avoid drafts, especially until the seedlings are strong.

When cultivating tomatoes in the open field, it is advisable to install a drip irrigation system. This method is suitable not only for moistening the soil, but also for introducing nutrient compositions and dressings. This irrigation option simplifies the maintenance of the beds. In order to prevent parasites between the rows, plants that repel pests should be planted. These are: marigolds, parsley, thyme, sage, etc.

Harvesting and application of the crop

When the seedlings of the Golden Queen are planted in May, the fruits reach technical maturity in the second half of July. Tomatoes in the greenhouse ripen a couple of weeks earlier than in the open field. The harvesting period does not stretch due to the amicable formation of ovaries and ripening. Vegetables are stored long enough when placed in a cool place.

One of the advantages of the variety is the universal use of the fruit. They are suitable for the preparation of many culinary dishes. Due to their large size, tomatoes are rarely used for whirling whole.However, tomatoes are ideal for fresh salads and winter preparations, where the fruit is crushed into wedges. A thick and tasty juice is obtained from the pulp; it is also harvested for consumption in the cold season.

Farmers reviews

  • Semyon Ilyich, Krasnodar Territory

When planting seedlings in a greenhouse, I immediately install supports. The growth of the shoots is intense, so I spend the first level of the garter already 3 weeks after planting. The plant responds well to fertilization. I use both mineral compositions and organic matter. Late blight destroyed the beds with Volgograd tomatoes and Rufus. The landing with the Golden Queen remained intact.

  • Antonina, Moscow region

Tomatoes are fully consistent with their name. The golden queen is excellently cultivated in the open field. I cover seedlings with a film only at night, when there is a threat of late frosts. I really like the presentation and taste of the tomato. For the second year I have been preparing tomato puree for the winter for my little granddaughter. Nutritionists say the strain is good for toddlers. On weekends, I spoil my adult children with pizza, which I also cook with the use of the Golden Queen. It turns out to remove no more than 7 kg of fruit from the bush.

  • Elena, Rostov region

In general, the Golden Queen variety bears fruit well, but requires regular feeding and pinching. The disadvantage of the variety is the formation of a large number of stepchildren, they have to be removed almost every week. Among the advantages: stable yield, disease resistance, understandable agricultural technology.

Based on the description, it is not difficult to grow this tomato variety. I think that you need to grow a bush in two stems, but I don't understand how - it's to pinch to the first brush, I always try to cut off all the stepsons and do it regularly.

Such tomatoes are not very suitable for a tomato, the borscht will be too pale and ugly, but for contrast, in a jar together with red tomatoes, it looks quite good and does not taste bad tomatoes.

User avatar Ivan Sergeev

For me, the main thing in a tomato is not its appearance, and not even its taste, I am more interested in their beneficial properties, for example, the richness of iron. But in yellow tomatoes, theoretically, it should be much less.

This variety of tomatoes is just a godsend for me. I planted seeds first in containers, when they grew up, then in a greenhouse. All the seedlings were accepted. A feature is their rapid growth, I tied them to a support. And also large fleshy fruits, because not every variety gives such a crop. The taste is very juicy and light. Children are delighted with them.

And I fell in love with yellow-fruited tomatoes for their dietetic nature. They can be eaten even by people with gout and gastrointestinal diseases. Favorite varieties - this one, the Golden Queen and the Stesha hybrid.
