Tomato competition is planned in my garden
Jan 06, 2021
This year I was presented with 78 super-duper varieties of tomatoes, “my own” seeds. We call our own seeds collected by amateurs from their tomatoes. They are rightfully considered the best, they are collected for themselves. They have excellent germination and higher disease resistance. Because they are cherished with love.
But I will also sow seeds from colored bags. Some of them are gifts from online stores, for example, such a gift:
Interesting! How not to plant? I will leave only Eurasia F1 for the next year.
Each of these bushes will have competitors from their own. I will compare the taste, beauty of a bush, whole tomatoes and slices, disease resistance and yield. Maybe keeping quality, if I have time :) Delicious eaten quickly, as you know. This will create a mini-contest. International, you'll see why soon.
So the mid-early Honey-sugar a Russian from Siberian Garden will have several competitors, large yellow and orange tomatoes. These tomatoes are always sweet. But they also have a classic drawback: a tendency to top rot. I've already rejected a couple of varieties. Will Honey Sugar Resist?
His rivals in the yellow-orange nomination:
Tall, with fruits about 400 g, plus or minus 300 g, how they will be born:
- Amana Orange - entered the TOP 10 most delicious in 2016 at the tomato festival in America, a total of 600 varieties were presented.
- Florentine beauty - American, I chose her for her incredible beauty! This American woman is not fruitful, and her taste is normal, but the ribbed flattened shape, bright color impressed me very much.
- Brandywine apricot - Canadian. He has a potato leaf and few seeds. Mid-season.
- Yellow bag - Polish woman. Mid-season tomato, ribbed bag shape.
- Hawaiian pineapple - Russian from the breeder Lyubov Myazina, the ripening period is in question. Perhaps he is bicolor, then he will fall into another category :)
- Kazakhstan yellow - the name is conditional, the author of the variety is unknown, he is a Kazakh tomato. They loved him and began to grow him. He has a varietal omen: a scarlet tie on the cut. It's very interesting whether I will have it or not.
- Yellow scallops- Europeans at present, from Ukraine. Here they are praised for keeping quality. Moreover, they become tastier when they lie down.
And two determinant tomatoes:
- Orange giant - judging by the name, a Russian. Not the one included in Rosreestr. And a certain mid-early giant, bush 60-70 cm.
- Monastic meal - author's maturing grade, author: Postnikova Olga Valentinovna
I chose mainly varieties, about which there are many reviews: “delicious”. The exception is the Florentine beauty. She was little praised for her taste. But this does not mean that she will not reveal her potential for me. I will try to!
Which variety do you think is more likely to become the tastiest yellow in my garden? :)
I would be grateful for your subscription and communication :)
