Each of us enthusiastically reads about new products, trying to remember interesting "tricks" and bring them to our country life. An experienced summer resident begins to engage in the selection of plant seeds with the end of the previous garden season. After all, this process must be approached thoughtfully, remembering the smallest details, is not it?

By the way, new products in this area appear annually, each of them in their own way is interested in summer residents. Someone is curious to observe the process, noting for themselves interesting features, someone is looking forward to the results. In this situation, the main thing is to remember that it is not recommended to plant the whole garden with new products, sweeping away the familiar varieties for a long time. After all, this may end in disappointment. It would be more correct to stock up with proven varieties, supplementing them with only a few "beginners", thus, introducing more and more innovations every year.
NEW AND BEST VARIETIES OF TOMATO (TOMATOES)
TOMATOES AND THEIR HYBRIDES: NAME + DESCRIPTION
Tomatoes are one of the main crops present in almost every garden. This is not surprising, because we not only absorb them in the season, but also stock up on a wide variety of sunsets from this vegetable, rich in all kinds of vitamins. It is safe to say that this is the favorite culture of most gardeners. This year there are many new varieties that you can try.
All tomatoes are divided into two main types. These are varietal tomatoes and hybrids. Distinguishing them is quite simple, since the name F1 is necessarily present in the name of the hybrid plant. Hybrids are bred artificially and differ in that the seeds of such tomatoes have a higher yield, higher resistance to adverse conditions, diseases and pests compared to varieties.
It is interesting
Russian farmers created a disease-resistant tomato hybrid and called it the “Mentor”. It is not inferior in yield and disease resistance to the Dutch hybrid. Large-fruited, beautiful and, most importantly, fragrant and tasty. According to Russian scientists, large-scale production of this hybrid will begin in one and a half to two years.
In the open ground, varieties and hybrids with the shortest possible ripening periods are most often planted. We recommend you pay attention to:
Darinka F1 - an ultra-early hybrid characterized by continuous fruiting. The plant is determinant, the bush is medium-open. Fruits are small, with a classic round shape, red, smooth, with an average weight of 90-110 g. The fruits are resistant to cracking and are capable of long-term transportation. Great for fresh consumption and pickling. The hybrid is recommended for cultivation in open ground and film greenhouses.

Features of care
The gardener with a hybrid tomato will not have any trouble: the tomato does not need complicated care, it is rarely sick, it pleases with stable and plentiful crops.
How to grow tomato Linda F1?
For 55-60 days before the intended planting in the soil, it is necessary to sow seeds for seedlings. Hybrid seedlings are grown in the same way as seedlings of any other tomato varieties: the seeds are laid out in soft-fed soil, sprinkled with soil or peat and irrigated with water.
After 5-6 days, the first shoots begin to break through the film. It's time to transfer the seedlings to a bright place. Tomatoes need to be dived when two real leaves appear on the plant - they must be transplanted into a separate container.
The first feeding takes place during the dive period, for this they use a mineral complex designed for tomatoes.
Tomatoes are planted in a permanent place according to the scheme: 4 bush per square meter.
Care: regular watering (preferably drip), top dressing, weeding, protection against diseases and pests.
It is recommended to form a hybrid in the following way: in addition to the main stem, leave the stepson below 1-2, getting the 2-3 stem. All stepchildren growing from internodes are removed.
When planting tomatoes in the ground, you should focus not so much on calendar values as on weather conditions. Transplanting bushes is possible only under the condition that there are no night frosts, and the soil temperature is at least + 15 ... + 18 ° C.
Tomato General F1
Lovers of summer cottages, especially fans to plant tomatoes in the open ground, will be interested in this particular hybrid. And again we need to say thanks to the French breeders, because it was they who brought General F1. Plants of this hybrid are determinant, that is, after the appearance of a certain number of inflorescences, they are self-limited in growth.
It is interesting
What are the characteristics of this hybrid? It is early ripening, the ripening time from planting seeds is 107-110 days. The height of the bushes reaches 60-70 cm in height, which also attracts some summer residents. Forms inflorescences according to 4-6, from which a bunch of tomatoes then grows. The average weight of one fruit is 220-250 g, sometimes it reaches 280 g. The shape of the fruit is round, slightly flattened. Coloring bright red, without splashes and spots.
Consider the pros and cons of this hybrid. The pluses include:
- • high productivity;
- • does not experience any problems during transportation;
- • has a very mouth-watering and attractive appearance;
- • characterized by stable immunity to viral and fungal diseases: verticillosis, fusarium, alternariosis and gray rot.
There are few disadvantages of this tomato, and they are insignificant for lovers of high-quality tomato hybrids.
During the season, tomatoes need to be “treated” 3-4 times with inorganic fertilizers containing nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus. Abundant watering, weeding and loosening of the earth, hilling - these are frequent processes during the growing season of plants.
For 1-2 weeks before transplanting General F1 seedlings into the garden, it is necessary to temper: take it out for a while, ventilate the room.
It is worth noting that, judging by the characteristics of the hybrid and the responses of summer residents, this tomato is suitable for making tomato paste, juice, lecho, salads, and, of course, for fresh consumption. The yield of the variety is up to 12 kg with 1 m2.
Tomato Pink Bush F1 pink
This is a hybrid of an early ripe tomato, which can be safely advised to summer residents.
It is interesting
Scientists argue that the use of pink tomatoes specifically reduces the risk of the formation and development of oncology, as well as improves the functioning of the immune and cardiovascular systems, and helps fight the depressive state.
Let's look at the main characteristics of the hybrid:
- • the first fruit ripening occurs in 90-100 days after emergence;
- • undersized, determinant;
- • has immunity to fungal diseases;
- • weather changes are fearless: temperature changes, extreme heat, leaves and fruits are not prone to sunburn. This hybrid can be planted both in closed and in open ground;
- • the color of ripe fruits is saturated pink.
Such hybrids can hardly boast of their size, but they differ in good productivity and aromatic fruits.
The height of the bush depends on whether these plants are grown in a greenhouse or planted directly on the site. Hothouse bushes can reach 1 m in height and height, and in open ground hybrids grow no more than 70 cm.
Despite being classified undersized, the Pink Bush F1 is often tied up in open ground due to the high yield on the flower brush. Under greenhouse conditions, the Pink Bush F1 will grow best on trellises.
Let's look at the main pros and cons of this hybrid.
From the pros, you can distinguish:
- • high productivity: bushes are abundantly covered with fruits;
- • high immunity to various diseases;
- • good taste;
- • the hybrid feels equally good both in open and in closed ground;
- • compact bushes.
However, this hybrid has its drawbacks:
- • dim color of sauces during preservation;
- • high cost of seeds;
- • Due to the fact that it is a hybrid, it is impossible to collect seeds from ripened tomatoes.
As you can see, the flaws are not so significant that because of them to refuse to breed these tomatoes.
We must not forget about foliar top dressing, especially during the flowering of tomatoes. Spraying plants with a solution of boric acid will increase the number of ovaries.

WHAT IS BETTER: OPEN SOIL OR GREENHOUSE FOR CUCUMBERS?
Khleborodov Anatoly Yakovlevich, specialist of the Institute of Vegetable Production
For cucumbers, it does not matter where you plan to plant them - in open ground or in a greenhouse. It is important which grade you choose. If we are talking about planting cucumbers in a greenhouse, then these are parthenocarpic (self-pollinated) varieties. This variety of cucumbers feels great in a greenhouse. At the same time, their landing in open ground is also allowed. Bees pollinated cucumbers are planted in the open ground, which, incidentally, are best suited for salting. By the way, if cucumbers are bitter (and sometimes this happens even if you bought a special variety that should not give bitterness), this means that the fruits suffered either a sharp temperature drop or suffer from a lack of moisture. Another reason for the bitterness of cucumbers may be dry weather.
Let's look at the self-pollinated hybrids Prestige F1 and Gunnar F1 (for a greenhouse), as well as varieties of cucumbers for pickling.
Self-Pollinated (Parthenocarpic) Cucumbers. WHAT IS IT?
These are cucumbers that do not need pollination by bees. The peculiarity of these cucumbers is the structure of their body: they have in one flower both a pestle (masculine origin) and a stamen (female component). The presence of such a structure implies a self-pollination process, when fruits with seeds are formed on their own.
It is worth knowing
Do you know that compared to bee pollinators, more self-pollinated cucumbers are considered more productive? In connection with the technology of reproduction of vegetables of this type, the probability of the appearance of fruits is much higher.
Self-pollinated cucumbers impress summer residents with their incredible taste: sweet, without bitterness, with a pleasant crunch. Moreover, they are all almost the same size, beautiful in shape, have a long shelf life, which simplifies the process of preserving them. Is this not a grower's dream?
As for the appearance, the handsome men have a cylindrical shape of dark green color with light short longitudinal stripes. Another plus in the piggy bank of these guys is that they have a thin peel with small tubercles and spikes. Sizes: length - up to 8-9 cm, diameter - 3-4 cm, weight - 50-95 g. Great for fresh use, for appetizers, summer salads and pickling for the winter. They do not have the bitterness characteristic of cucumbers. Although it is necessary to understand that many characteristics depend on the variety of seeds.
By the way, self-pollinated cucumbers are also perfect for growing in greenhouses, since bees do not always have access to flowering crops in greenhouses.
Self-pollinated cucumbers Prestige F1 occupy leading positions among the most popular in 2019 year, gathering more and more fans into their team.
In open ground conditions it is possible to collect up to 20-25 kg with 1 m2. A medium-sized plant with small foliage, indeterminate type (the main stem is not limited to flower ovary). A bundle type of ovary. What gives Prestige F1? Stable harvest, early ripening, good taste, self-dusting, stress resistance (tolerates transplanting and picking), disease resistance.
This hybrid has practically no negative qualities, gardeners eagerly list its positive aspects, namely:
- • excellent taste;
- • universality of use;
- • long shelf life;
- • resistance to temperature extremes;
- • easy tolerance of transplants;
- • long fruiting period;
- • resistance to major diseases;
- • self-pollinated.
So, the seeds are ready. What do we do next? To start, we fertilize the beds with organic top dressing. We dig it, spill it with plenty of hot water, cover it with a film for a week.
After preparing the soil, seeds are sown on the beds - according to 2 a seed in a hole to a depth of 2-4 cm. The distance between plantings is 50 × 30 cm. So seedlings do not obscure each other. During growth, a standard care procedure: watering, weeding, pinching, cultivating, controlling diseases and fertilizers.
CUCUMBERS FOR SALTING
It is important to know that not all varieties of cucumbers are suitable for pickling. Let's get it right.
How to determine if cucumbers are suitable for pickling? The fruits of the vegetable should be spiked, and such cucumbers are grown only in open ground. It is also necessary to pay attention to the thickness of the peel. For pickling and canning, varieties with a green peel are suitable. It is better not to take overripe and yellow cucumbers, as their peel and seeds will be very rough and hard, and also add a specific aftertaste.
Ideally, for pickling, it is better to take coarse-cucumber cucumbers with black or white spikes.
Do not wait for a crunch from thin-skinned cucumbers. The elastic tail indicates the freshness of the fetus. Such cucumbers are ideal for harvesting.
By the way, there are cucumbers that feel great both in open ground and in greenhouses. Their fruits are oblong, 8-11 cm long. They can be consumed both fresh and canned.
There are many hybrids of cucumbers for pickling, for example:
Boron F1 - Mid-early hybrid with a predominant number of female flowers (requires pollination by bees). The fruit is smooth, beautiful in shape, intense green with faint stripes. Medium-sized tubercles, numerous. Length to Width Ratio 3: 1. Hybrid is fruitful. Resistant to downy mildew. Suitable for pickling and pickling, while maintaining a beautiful green color.
Julian F1 - Mid-late hybrid with a predominant number of female flowers on the plant. The fruit is cylindrical, light green with long stripes, with black spikes. Length to Width Ratio - 2,7: 1. The hybrid is very productive, bears fruit until late autumn. Fruits do not tend to form empty chambers. Recommended for pickling, and especially for pickling.
CUCUMBERS FOR GREENHOUSES
Cucumber Gunnar F1 is an early parthenocarpic (self-pollinated) hybrid. The first fruits can be harvested in 1-1,5 months after germination. The fruiting is extended, the fruits are harvested every 2-3 of the day, and with abundant productivity - once a day. The plant is compact, open type. In the node forms by 2-3 of the fetus.
The length of the fruit is 12-14 cm, their shape is cylindrical. One big advantage of the hybrid is that bitterness is completely absent.
Advantages of this hybrid:
- • high productivity;
- • after full ripening, cucumbers do not lose their shape, do not become “barrel-shaped”, the taste does not deteriorate;
- • good keeping quality; they are transported without problems;
- • attractive dark green color of "Zelentsy".
The disadvantages we can attribute the high cost of seeds.
It is interesting
By cultivating Gunnar F1 cucumbers, you can make a good business: they are profitable for sale and mass marketing of production. Due to the excellent merchandising qualities, the demand for the fruits of this hybrid is consistently high.

ZABATCHIKS - NEW AND BEST GRADES
Zucchini is a fairly popular, healthy and popular vegetable in our area. Unprincipled, high-yielding and affordable product. The variety of dishes from this vegetable is also impressive!
Let's get it right. There is a huge variety of varieties of zucchini. And yes, they also can boast of their constant updating - all the time there are new varieties of this vegetable. By the way, the birthplace of zucchini is Mexico, over time, zucchini began to take root in Europe, and at first only its seeds were consumed. Do you know what is the most unusual dish of zucchini? Stuffed flowers of this vegetable! Let's take a closer look at this handsome man.
How to plant zucchini? It is advisable to start preparing the soil for zucchini already in the fall, digging to a depth of 20-25 cm and adding 1 and 2 30 g of superphosphate and 20 g of potassium sulfate. Zucchini is not friendly with plants of the pumpkin family, and it is also not recommended to plant it in the same place for several years. Our hero will be happy to live on the soil after potatoes, beets, cabbage, carrots, onions. To plant zucchini, you need to choose a warm and sunny place.
When sowing, the seeds are pre-soaked in water without chlorine, and then immersed in soil to a depth of 3-4 cm.
Zucchini is planted in open ground every 50-70 cm so that the plants do not experience a nutrient deficiency. Some people lower a seed in one planting hole on the 2-3 seed, and after emergence, thin out, leaving in each hole one of the strongest and most well-developed plants.
Watering the zucchini should be under the root as the topsoil dries up, usually no more than once every 10 days. Due to excess moisture, the tip of the zucchini may begin to rot. But if the summers were dry and zucchini were thirsty, their stems could crack and suffer from root rot. Some experts advise to completely stop watering 7-10 days before harvesting to avoid the risk of rot. To provide zucchini with the necessary trace elements, you can use a mixture of 5 g of superphosphate, 2 g of urea and 1 l of water. The first feeding is carried out ten days after the emergence of seedlings, the second - a week later.
Let's traditionally consider some interesting varieties of zucchini:
• Green zucchini, for example, varieties Startgreen F1 and Dunia F1.
Startgreen F1 is an early hybrid of zucchini bush squash. The plant is compact, very productive.

Try to sow the seeds immediately in individual pots with a diameter of about 8-10 cm. It is undesirable to transplant them, since they do not tolerate picking.
The soil should be soft and loose and consist of humus mixed with sand and part of the earth. Do not forget to add a tablespoon of ash per 1 kg.
Pepper seeds need pre-planting treatment - they must be kept in water for five hours before swelling, the temperature of which is about + 50 ° C. After that, they should be placed for peeling in a damp cloth on the 2-3 of the day, the room temperature should be about + 20 ° C. After such a simple preplant seed preparation, you will receive seedlings literally the day after sowing. Sown seeds of pepper must be well watered, and immediately after that cover with plastic wrap or glass. After emergence, the optimum temperature for growing seedlings during the day is about + 26 ... + 28 ° C, at night - about + 10 ... + 15 ° C.
Pepper seedlings require additional lighting. Throughout February, it must be covered from 7 in the morning to 9 in the evening. Do not forget about the hardening of the pepper - take it out for a while in the fresh air.
Pepper loves when before him his "living space" was occupied by onions, cucumbers, pumpkin, cabbage, zucchini and carrots. He won’t say thank you if you plant it after potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, physalis and eggplant.
Seedlings are planted in open ground at the end of May - mid-June according to the 40 × 40 scheme. Pepper seedlings are planted in a film unheated greenhouse in early May, and in tunnel shelters at the end of May.
When transplanting, try to lower it to the same depth as they sat when they were seedlings, trying not to damage the roots. Do not forget, pepper is a southern comrade, therefore it must be planted in places where there is a lot of sun.

Yoshta is a long-term powerful sprawling shrub that forms shoots with a height of about 1,5 m or more. Yoshta has no thorns, despite being related to gooseberries. Blooms in large bright flowers.

This plant has recently appeared in our gardens. It was interesting to try what kind of berry it was. Yoshta is the daughter of gooseberries and black currants. The fruits are the size of a gooseberry berry, taste sweet and sour, somewhat reminiscent of a royal gooseberry jam with a touch of black currant. Ripe black berries. There are no thorns at all. There has not yet been a large harvest (the bush is two years old), but the fruits have already been tried. Care as a black currant, that is, nothing special is required. I advise you to plant - an interesting and tasty berry.

JAM FROM YOSHTA
On 1 kg of berries: 1 kg of sugar, 200 g of water.
For jam from yoshta, it is better to take berries in the initial stage of maturity. This is the moment when the fruits have already darkened, but not yet overripe, and the flesh in them is quite dense. If the berries are overripe, then you will get jam from yoshta. To keep the fruits intact, you need to cook jam in several passes. Wait for the mass to boil, let it boil for 3-5 minutes, then cool to room temperature. Then boil 3-5 minutes again and remove the pan from the stove. You need to cook jam until a drop of syrup lies well and does not spread on a plate, and the jam acquires the desired density.
