Colored tomatoes with unusual coloring: varieties
Tomato - a vegetable is not just a favorite, cherished by many gardeners, truck farmers. It attracts in him not only a wonderful taste, but also an unconditional beauty, not for nothing, originally it came into the culture only as an ornamental plant.
And today, creating new varieties and hybrids, breeders pay much attention to the appearance of the fruits: shape, size and cheerful cheerful coloring, because it is almost half the pleasure to admire the bright sunny berries grown on their own, in a garden, on a plate or in a jar .
And although tomatoes need warmth and sunshine for successful growth and maturation, middle-class residents and even northerners and Siberians, not to mention southerners, enthusiastically plant tomatoes, not paying attention to all the difficulties and troubles associated with them.
Recently, there was another problem: the complexity of choice. The market of seeds collapsed with a real squall and novelties, and old domestic varieties, and glorified foreign ones. Today the seeds are offered not only by large and small seed companies from all over the country and from the far and near abroad, but also by amateur gardeners who have collected unique collections (including varieties of folk selection) and single professionals that bring out unique (and zoned) variety.
And many of them, apparently, in the soul of the artists. Because some of these novelties are real works of art. For example, in the style of Tai-Dai. The manual technique of coloring clothes, fashionable in times of hippies (such psychedelic bright prints) gave the name to one of the American varieties of tomatoes - 'Berkeley Tai Dai'. Apparently, the beauty of the style inspired many to create a variegated tomato, and today one can choose between striped large fruits (mass 240 g) 'Amur tiger' and small plum-shaped (60-80 g), but abundant and early 'Sherkhan'. Beautiful green-yellow small (about 90 g) rounded fruit Siberian malachite, intended for use in fresh form. A variety 'Emerald apple' pleases not only beautiful large (240 г) fruits, but also a pleasant slightly sour taste.
By the way, their use is universal - they are suitable both for salad and for salting. As, however, and the new varieties of cherry 'Gimmick'. Its appearance is quite consistent with the name: a cluster of fruits of brown-violet coloring look very impressive.
The variety is early, differs unpretentiousness, stability and, most importantly - a wonderful taste. Beauty (crimson with a yellow glimpse of "plum"), taste and yield pleases and early maturing determinant grade 'Don Juan', it well tolerates transportation and is distinguished by its versatility.
Enumerate beautiful variegated varieties of tomatoes for a long time - the choice is great.
And the experiment and the search for an ideal combination of the external effect and internal content - it's fascinating. But, in order to pursue the originality of the final result did not disappoint, it is necessary to pay attention to the point of "taste" when buying seeds in the description of the variety, if it is indicated that "the taste is excellent" or "very good", then there is no doubt.

TOMATOES BIKOLORS AND DR.
What, it would seem, can surprise us beloved tomatoes by everyone?
Unusual coloring - green, white, black, blue? Indeed, in recent years, breeders, like artists, simply play with colors, creating their own color masterpieces.
But even more surprising are the varieties and hybrids of tomatoes, whose fruits are painted in different colors. In this case, they get a double advantage. So, if black or dark blue stripes are present on a red tomato, this gives an “additive” of useful substances in the form of anthocyanins. These substances are able to destroy harmful bacteria in the body, help with colds and increase immunity. They strengthen the walls of blood vessels, relieve swelling, bind free radicals, thereby protecting the body from cancer and aging. And the taste of such fruits acquires interesting notes. By the way, they are usually given the highest tasting score.
