Perhaps today it is impossible to find a tomato that experienced gardeners would not have written a couple of lines about. The Pink Helmet is no exception. Therefore, if you are interested in this variety, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with several opinions of summer residents about it.

  • Decent tomato. The tomatoes were large - 500-600 g, especially the first ones. The bush, however, was a little weak, and did not grow up to one and a half meters. Grew in 2 stems. In appearance, the fruits are very beautiful, similar to a helmet, hence the name. (Ksenia Igorevna, Kostroma)
  • I learned about the tomato "Pink Helmet" from a friend. She described to me the characteristics of the variety, told me about a good yield - 8 kg per bush. The tomato is really good, but my results were a little more modest. It's all about experience, I guess. By the way, in the middle lane "Pink Helmet" is suitable only for the greenhouse. Will not grow on the street. (Varvara Andreevna, Kirov region, Slobodskoy)
  • The cultivation of this variety brought me great pleasure. I can only leave rave reviews about it. First, it is completely unpretentious. Secondly, it gives an excellent harvest, subject to the basic rules of agricultural technology. Thirdly, the pickles are simply divine. Added the best varieties to the piggy bank.
