FERTILIZING TOMATOES WITH SALT - REALLY?
As soon as the first tomatoes begin to form, once every 10 days I water the beds with tomatoes with a solution of table salt (1 tablespoon per 10 liters of water). As a result, even not the sweetest varieties produce very tasty fruits.

WORD TO THE SPECIALIST
Tips on feeding all kinds of crops with salt are common. However, keep in mind that table salt is harmful to the soil. With its frequent use, it is possible to oversalt the earth, and over time it will become almost impossible to get a good harvest from it.
And in order to be guaranteed to get sweet and tasty tomatoes without harm to the site, I recommend that you adhere to the following rules.
Ripening fruits must be exposed to direct sunlight. Therefore, do not thicken the plantings, remove stepchildren and extra leaves in time.
When ripening begins, limit watering, because with a lot of moisture, the size of the fruit increases, but the concentration of sugar and substances responsible for flavor decreases. And at the end of the season, when most of the fruits have already formed, stop watering the tomato beds altogether.
Once every two weeks 1 tsp. dilute potassium monophosphate in 10 liters of water, distribute the composition to 4-5 plants.
Alternate fertilizing with a solution of potassium monophosphate with ash infusion (100 g of wood ash, pour 10 liters of hot water, let stand in a warm place for a day) - pour 0 liters of the composition under the bush.
Do not overuse nitrogen fertilizers: they promote leaf growth and increase fruit size, but reduce palatability.
Choose tomato varieties that produce sweet, tasty fruits (Bull's Heart, Cosmonaut Volkov, King of Kings).
