Such different tomatoes …


Tomatoes are the most valuable vegetable crop. They have high taste and nutritional qualities.

The nutritional value of this food product is due to the fact that the fruits contain a large amount of substances important for the human body and, first of all, vitamin C - 19-35 mg, vitamin B1 - 0.6-1.6 mg, B2-1.5 -6 mg per 1 kg of fruit.

In addition, the fruits contain sugars (3-7%), malic, citric acids and mineral salts. And the low calorie content of tomato fruits (160-200 kcal / kg) determines their value in dietary nutrition, especially in obese patients, when a feeling of satiety develops rapidly against the background of the low calorie content of this food product.

Orange-colored tomato fruits are high in beta-carotene, which is an excellent prevention of cardiovascular and oncological diseases. All this indicates that by using tomatoes, we not only satisfy the purely physiological needs of the body, but also prevent the occurrence of a number of diseases. The world of tomatoes is amazing and diverse.

In terms of the prevalence of cultivation, this culture, without a doubt, ranks first in the world. On my garden plot, the main areas are occupied by tomatoes, I test about 100 varieties annually. This is possible thanks to communication with breeders and amateur seed growers.

Indoor tomatoes


Some tomato varieties are adapted to a small feeding area and low light. This allows them to be grown indoors and consumed fresh all year round. I have tried 10 varieties of indoor tomatoes, but for growing I selected only varieties with a fruit weight of 60-100 g: Craiova, Mini, Pacio, Arctic Flame, Pink Pearl, Japanese dwarf.

The composition of the soil for growing indoor tomatoes: 10% humus, 80% garden land, 10% sand. I irrigate with ordinary water, alternating them with fertilizing solutions using complex fertilizers at the generally accepted rate.

In natural conditions, tomatoes are pollinated by wind. Indoor tomatoes need hand pollination. This is the main agricultural technique for growing indoor tomatoes, and it is available to everyone. The effect is achieved by daily shaking of the blossoming flowers.

Indoor tomatoes in the open field reveal their full potential with sufficient illumination and nutritional area: the plants are completely dotted with fruits. And taking into account the planting density (10-12 bushes per 1 sq. M), indoor tomatoes in the open field surpass their tall relatives in yield. They also favorably differ in ease of maintenance: they do not require any garters or pinching, and if there is a threat of frost, low bushes (their height is 25-35 cm) can be easily saved with a covering material. All these circumstances make it possible for novice gardeners to successfully grow these varieties of tomatoes.

Ultra early ripening varieties

The main part of the territory of Russia is a zone of risky farming. The short summer, the sharp contrast of day and night temperatures, abundant dew at the end of summer, the ubiquitous late blight are examining gardeners in the most serious way. But thanks to the achievements of domestic breeding, new ultra-early ripening varieties of tomatoes have appeared in the arsenal of gardeners, the full return of the harvest of which occurs by mid-August, and therefore they escape from the defeat of late blight.

These varieties are resistant to stressful situations: they exhibit the ability to set fruit under the most unfavorable weather conditions, and tolerate low temperatures. They are also attracted by their unpretentious care: they are undersized, compact, do not require garters and pinching, and are ideal for growing in small areas. Even the names of these varieties of tomatoes reflect their characteristics: Alaska, Snowdrop, Polar early ripening, Bullfinch, Snow Fairy Tale, Sub-Arctic, Taimyr, Yamal. In the southern regions of Russia, these varieties can be used for a very early tomato harvest.

For gourmets, I can recommend the Ellow Stafer variety for growing. Its fruits are yellow, cuboid. The thick walls and hollowness of the fruit make it possible to use these tomatoes stuffed.

The dense fruits of tomatoes Coconut palm, Kuvalda, Legenda and Moscow delicacy are also good for canning and storage.
