Tomato varieties for growing in low film greenhouses or greenhouses

Tomatoes of the Garant variety

Today tomato has become the most widespread crop not only in the world, but also in Russia. But 150-200 years ago, only residents of the south of Russia (on the Black Sea coast) could afford to grow this exotic. Now, even novice gardeners grow tomatoes everywhere.

Two centuries later, the Russian gardener confidently picks ripe and tasty tomato fruits in his beds, which are often located in the northernmost regions of Russia: in the Leningrad, Vologda, Kirov regions, in the Republic of Karelia, etc. And it has already been forgotten that the cultivated tomato is of South American origin (Peru, Ecuador).

There is no doubt that this species acquired such plasticity only thanks to the tireless and systematic work of breeders. We will introduce you now with varieties of tomatoesbred specifically for cultivation in low film greenhouses or greenhouses. These are medium-sized (1-1.5 m) determinant varieties and hybrids that ripen 100-110 days after germination. All of them are well adapted to the most different climatic conditions, are fruitful, tasty, and most importantly, they know how to forgive mistakes in agricultural technology.

Tomatoes varieties Northern Lights

Guarantor - early ripening variety, ripens on the 100-105th day after germination. Produces well in film shelters. Height up to 1 m. Fruits weighing 90-100 g are resistant to cracking, have excellent taste, ripen together, are suitable for salting and canning. Planting density - 5-6 plants per 1 m2 (formed into two stems). The yield is 10-12 kg / m2. Ripens on a bush even in Siberia.

Tsarskoye Selo early - early ripening variety (100-105 days), plant height 80-90 cm. Ripening amicably, fruits weighing 90-100 g, do not crack, taste good. In a film greenhouse, 5-6 plants are placed per 1 m2, formed into two stems, the yield is 10-12 kg per 1 m2. The Northern Lights are a precocious variety (105-110 days).

Plant height up to 1-1.2 m. Fruits are red, elongated-rounded, smooth, without ribbing, weighing 85-100 g, excellent taste, resistant to cracking. 5-6 plants are planted per 1 m2, formed into two stems. Harvest 9-12 kg from 1 m2.

Tomatoes variety Tsarskoselsky early

Sweetheart - mid-season variety (95-110 days) for open ground and film greenhouses. The plant is determinate, up to 1.2-1.5 m. Fruits are oval-rounded, red, weighing 90-120 g with a dense, sugary tasty pulp. 4-5 plants are planted per 1 m2, formed into two stems. Productivity 12-15 kg per 1 m2. The indisputable advantage of all these varieties is their reliability, a friendly return of the harvest, which does not depend on the whims of the summer St. Petersburg weather.

The agricultural technology of these varieties is very similar, as, incidentally, it is applicable to the cultivation of most modern varieties of tomatoes in the Non-Black Earth Region of Russia. Sowing seedlings is carried out from mid-March. It is advisable to grow seedlings through a school. To do this, prepare a shallow (5-6 cm) wooden box with drainage and fill it with peat soil.

The soil is spilled with a dark red solution of potassium permanganate, grooves are made with an interval of 5 cm, a depth of 0.5-0.7 cm.In the grooves, dry seeds are laid out at a distance of 0.5-1 cm, sprinkled, and then the soil is slightly compacted, and the box is covered plastic wrap. Before the emergence of shoots, the box is placed in a very warm place (25 ... 30 ° C). Water, if necessary, carefully, through a strainer, so as not to wash out the seeds.

Slastena varieties

With the appearance of the first shoots, the film is immediately removed, and the box is placed on the lightest windowsill. The hardening of the school during the first 7-8 days after germination is carried out using a window, which, if necessary, is draped with a cloth. During hardening, the air temperature should be no more than 13 ... 14 ° C.

Then the temperature is increased to 20 ... 22 ° C. A school (young seedlings) is dived (transplanted into pots) 18-20 days after the emergence of shoots. Pots (bags) should be filled with good, nutritious soil and a capacity of at least 0.5 liters. The seedlings are deepened to the cotyledon leaves.

The seedlings of these varieties are 50-55 days old. Tomatoes are planted in a permanent place at the rate of 5-6 plants per 1 m2 and after 3-5 days they are tied to a trellis or to stakes. I want to remind you that in order to obtain early and high yields of tomatoes in the northern regions of Russia, it is necessary to use the simplest film shelters (greenhouses, hotbeds) and provide for a second shelter of plants with lutrasil (spunbond) in case of cold snap or frost.

The best and most productive varieties of tomatoes for Belarus in a greenhouse and open field

When choosing varieties of tomatoes for Belarus, first of all, you need to pay attention to plants that are zoned to local conditions. A number of institutes and agricultural enterprises of Belarus are engaged in their breeding, which have achieved excellent results. Seed companies in Holland produce tomatoes that are maximally adapted to the conditions of the region. They offer varieties of tomatoes for Belarus, among which there are many high-yielding hybrids for greenhouses. Also, varieties of Siberian selection are suitable for the moderately warm Belarusian summer, which can easily endure weather stresses in unprotected soil conditions. The choice is extensive, for any, even very demanding taste.

Four agroclimatic zones of Belarus differ in the duration of frost-free periods and the amount of precipitation. These features are familiar to home owners. Everyone tries to choose the best varieties of vegetables, taking into account their capabilities, crop rotation, sown area, the presence of a greenhouse, a greenhouse.

Many conditions influence the choice. But the main ones are the ripening times of tomatoes, their degree of adaptability to weather conditions, and productivity. Everyone decides for himself which varieties to choose. For many, the main argument is the exotic color, shape or size of tomatoes. It is more convenient to divide tomatoes into two groups, for open and protected ground.

Open field tomatoes

Tomatoes with short to medium ripening periods are grown outdoors, trying to finish harvesting before the cold weather. Usually these are plants with a low or medium bush height, independently limiting themselves in growth. These include dwarf tomatoes, with a low bush of 35-50 cm. Low-growing tomatoes often have a standard type of bush that can withstand loads well and does not require a stem tie to a support. Medium-sized varieties of tomatoes for open ground can reach a height of 1.5 meters and are usually attached to a trellis or tied to stakes.

Growing tomatoes in the open field requires plants to be resistant to pests, viral and fungal diseases. Similar qualities are always present in zoned Belarusian tomatoes with genetic resistance to local pathogens.

Also important for plants grown in open ground in Belarus, the ability to endure short-term cold snaps, stress associated with drying out of the soil, its high acidity.

Often, growing tomatoes in open ground is carried out under light film shelters due to the risks associated with low summer temperatures, frequent rains and cold dew. The exception is the varieties of tomatoes for open ground of the Belarusian and Siberian selection. Some ultra-early maturing species can be grown by direct sowing of seeds into the ground. But in most cases, tomatoes for open ground are grown in seedlings. Depending on the date of return frosts and the growing season of the plant, the date of sowing seeds for growing seedlings is selected.

Tomato varieties for greenhouses

Growing tomatoes in greenhouses offers many advantages, allowing you to adjust the environmental parameters for the specific needs of vegetable crops. In greenhouses, you can grow tomatoes using seedlings or sow seeds directly into the ground. The latter method significantly reduces labor costs and time for caring for plants. There is no need to plant seedlings, and the seedlings themselves do not waste time on survival in a new place. For this type of cultivation, tomato seeds of the “Silhouette”, “Bele”, “Alcazar”, “Geronimo”, “Raisa”, “Magnus”, “Triver”, “Malika”, “Honey Salute”, “Gift to a Woman” variety are recommended.

Pick up tomatoes with short growing seasons, the ability to tolerate low temperatures, insufficient illumination.

Dutch breeders have a lot of such types of tomatoes for a greenhouse, but they are quite demanding to care for.

Pay attention to the Dutch, high-yielding varieties:

  • "Belfast F1" - suitable for all types of greenhouses, is not afraid of temperature stresses, forms fruits up to 300 g in weight, with excellent consumer characteristics
  • "Aksai F1" - is distinguished by short ripening periods, with fruits of ideal commercial quality, weighing 140-180 g, ripening simultaneously on several clusters
  • "Panekra F1" - a hybrid for any greenhouse with large tomatoes that are not prone to cracking and weighing 300-450 g
  • "Sakura F1" is a hybrid adapted to low light and low temperatures, with low weight tomatoes up to 20 g, and exceptional taste characteristics.

Hybrids for greenhouses necessarily have protection against most of the diseases that are typical for greenhouses.

Today, the best tomato varieties for Belarus of their own breeding in terms of yield are: Harmony F1, Verlioka F1, Fanta F1, Alcazar F1, Alhambra F1. They give from 1 sq. square meter of about 14-16 kg of tomato.

For gardeners growing tomatoes using seedlings, you can safely choose plants with longer growing seasons. Seeds can be sown as early as February. Timing should be adjusted to reflect the quality of the greenhouse. By the period of transplantation to a place of constant growth, the seedlings should be 55-65 days old.

In this case, any varieties that can grow in the conditions of the Belarusian summer are suitable for greenhouses. These can be tall, indeterminate vines or tomatoes with limited growth. With the proper efforts and spending time on seedlings, you can be sure that an excellent result will not keep you waiting.

Get acquainted with the novelties of the Belarusian breeding school and choose for yourself the best varieties of tomatoes that are just beginning to appear on the market. The Department of Agricultural Biotechnology and Ecology of the Belarusian State Agricultural Academy announced this year the varieties "Berkut", "Garant", "Zorka", "Cherry Coral", "Strela", "Irma", "Teal", "Tamara", "Hybrid F1 Adapt", "Hybrid F1 Alexander". These novelties are awaiting the assessment of the owners of personal plots and gardeners. It is up to those who will be able to test them in practice, on garden plots and give them a worthy assessment.

For fans of exotic plants, the market provides a whole list of tomatoes that are very unusual in shape and color. Black, yellow, purple and even white tomatoes are offered to gardeners by scientists. The novelties also differ in taste, reminiscent of peppers or watermelons. But you always need to plant several proven varieties to get a yield guarantee.

Several variations of this variety have been bred: De Barao black, pink, yellow. All of them are tasty, beautiful and fruitful.

The recorded harvest record is 70 kg per bush.

Semko-Sinbad F1

Quite old, but still a popular early maturing hybrid. It is appreciated for early maturity - 85-93 days from germination. Determinant plant. In the inflorescence 8 round even fruits weighing 85-90 g are laid. The first cluster appears above 6-7 leaves, the rest after 1-2 leaves. The taste is good and excellent. Gives the harvest amicably, resistant to diseases. Tomato Semko-Sinbad F1 can be planted both in a film greenhouse and in open ground. Productivity - 10 kg per 1 sq. M.

Resistant to a number of diseases (fusarium, cladosporium and tobacco mosaic virus).

Among varieties and hybrids, you can pick tomatoes with high yields and desired properties. Feel free to experiment with new hybrids, but don't give up on proven varieties.

In heated greenhouses with an extended growing period, it is more profitable to plant indeterminate hybrids that continuously set fruit. Caring for them includes fertilizing, regularly tying and pinching.

High-yielding tomato varieties will show the best results in greenhouse conditions, with good feeding and proper care.

Choosing a variety of eggplant

Especially interesting for novice vegetable growers will be zoned eggplant - varieties created by local breeding stations and tested in local conditions. If 10 years ago varieties for the middle lane, for example, for the Moscow region or early eggplant varieties for the Urals were practically unknown, today there is quite a choice. And most often the buyer owes this choice to the testing services of large growers who are trying to develop varieties that are resistant to cold and short summer. Also recently, continuously fruitful hybrids have been developed for heated year-round greenhouses.

For the first experience, you need to choose win-win options:

  • suitable for your region (Moscow region, North-West, Ural, Siberia, etc.)
  • with stable fruiting
  • with high yield
  • low, not requiring plant formation
  • varieties included in the State Register for the Russian Federation are desirable (as a rule, these are all local varieties bred by breeding services).

Recall that there are varieties and varietal hybrids F1... The difference is that the latter use the best representatives of the classic varieties, selected by breeders to obtain particularly strong, fast-growing plants. Often, F1 hybrids acquire new properties, for example, resistance to late blight, which many nightshades suffer (tomato, pepper, etc.).

Hybrids are undoubtedly more productive, but more often they are more demanding. For the cultivation of most hybrids, those environmental conditions are necessary, which are indicated in the manufacturer's description on the bag. A slight violation of growing conditions often leads to an increase in greenery and a modest harvest. But under these conditions, they give 2 times more yield than even local zoned varieties.

How to choose varieties of eggplants for open ground, greenhouses, film shelters? First of all, carefully read the description of the variety: what size and shape the bush will grow, what the fruits will be and, of course, for which region it is suitable.

ON THE PICTURE: A good grower will always put all the information you need on the eggplant seed bag.

The choice of the variety of eggplants and their cultivation also depend on the future use. Saute, canned salads, etc. dense, long cylindrical fruits are suitable. For the preparation of caviar, the "Blue" eggplant variety with round, like swollen balls, or sickle-shaped fruits will also work. The most preferred form of fruit is elongated. Round loses to her in many respects: such varieties are less productive, the fruits on them imperceptibly overripe, they are inconvenient to cook, and the pulp is often loose and "cottony".

According to the ripening period, all varieties are divided into early, middle and late... The first two categories can be grown outdoors with virtually no restrictions from the latitude of Voronezh (51 ° north latitude) to the Moscow region (about 55-57 °). Late varieties of eggplants can be successfully grown in open ground in the south of the Voronezh region, throughout the Volgograd region and to the south. Of course, it is necessary to take into account the local climate conditions: for example, in the Moscow region, return frosts are frequent even in June, so it would be unreasonable to grow medium-early eggplant varieties in this region without a greenhouse.

Perhaps the most important advantage of these beautiful vegetables is that they are completely safe for people suffering from allergic diseases, this is their difference from red tomatoes. It is important that it is these tomatoes that are used to prepare food for babies. So they are even healthier than the red ones.

The pulp contains many vitamins A. It is this fact that determines the color. There is very little acid in them. In addition, vegetables are rich in beta-carotene, lycopene - this trace element removes toxins from the body and suppresses cancer cells. Also, the pulp contains a fairly large amount of niacinin, which strengthens the walls of blood vessels.
