* There are determinate and indeterminate varieties of tomatoes. By these words, experts call plants with limited growth (determinant) and unlimited growth (indeterminate).
Simply put, indeterminate tomato varieties will grow in height as long as climatic conditions permit. Their stem can reach a length of 5-7 meters or even more.
Determinant varieties develop in a slightly different way. After the formation of 4-5 inflorescences, the apical bud lays only a flower brush. This stops the growth of the main stem. If desired, the development of such a plant can be continued. For this, one of the upper lateral shoots (stepsons) is directed vertically. Later, it becomes a kind of substitute for the main stem, but only until an inflorescence is also formed at its top.
Determinant tomato varieties tend to ripen more early. But their fruits, even within the same inflorescence, can vary greatly in size. This is especially noticeable in unstable weather. 
Determinant plants are often referred to simply as stunted. They are really short and therefore convenient to grow in small foil greenhouses. However, such plants are more difficult to assimilate nutrients, in particular sulphurous magnesium, therefore, plants of determinant varieties need to be fed more often than tall ones. As a rule, the growth characteristics of a variety are indicated on the seed bag. If you have not found such information, then it is better not to buy such seeds, because an indeterminate variety is very inconvenient to grow in open ground, and for a determinant one, even in a greenhouse, special care is needed.
