WHAT VARIETIES OF TOMATOES WAS THE MOST TASTY AND PRODUCTIVE IN THIS SEASON?
Hello, beloved and dear gardeners, gardeners! Here is my tomato marathon. Summer turned out in the north of the Volgograd region, I tell you, not very well. Seedlings of tomatoes, and other crops, were planted in June: earlier they did not give return frosts. And who hurried - just froze their green pets. So, I hasten to introduce you only to those varieties that made an indelible impression on me in terms of taste and yield.
LEADER AMONG TOMATOES
In the first place is already known to many varieties of Brad Gates selection - Brad's Atomic Grapes. My dears, this is something amazing both in terms of yield and taste. The bushes are strewn from top to bottom with extraordinarily beautiful small fruits that remind me of the starry sky in coloring.
Tomatoes themselves taste more like fruits - juicy, sweet and elastic. Not subject to cracking, good for preservation, but it is better to just eat them. Everyone who was at the tasting of Atomic Grapes said that it was an explosion of taste and the most delicious tomato that was eaten. The variety is indeterminate, you can lead in 3 trunks without harming the plant. Support is needed, affectionate words and high-quality humate for feeding such a handsome man - too.
TO THE JOY OF GOURMETS
Second place was shared by 2 varieties: Ozark sunrise and CAS 21. Ozark Sunrise is a chic handsome man, the mass of fruits of which can reach 150-250 g. According to my personal classification, this tomato is “tasty even without salt”: sweet, dense, juicy, sets a lot of fruits - from large to small (for every taste). A great decoration for any holiday, whether it's a wedding or an anniversary.
OZARK SUNRISE IN MY PERSONAL CLASSIFICATION - "DELICIOUS EVEN WITHOUT SALT".
KAS 21 is a young variety of the Polish breeder Casentia.
These tomatoes will not leave anyone indifferent: dense, large, fleshy, sweet with very little acidity, bright pink with dark shoulders. The real joy of a gourmet and the pride of a collector. Indeterminate variety, it is better to lead in 2 trunks, support is necessary. I regret that I planted only 2 bushes for testing.
Shared third place Alice's Dream, Dixie the Golden Giant and Pascal de Picardi.
Alice's dream - the indescribable beauty of the Polish selection, refers to bicolors (two-color tomatoes). The more light falls on Alice, the brighter and tastier she becomes. Tomatoes are almost without acidity, sweet, the plant is very productive for the variety, indeterminate, resistant to diseases, does not like frequent watering.
Dixie Golden Giant is an outstanding vintage variety from America, known since the 1930s. At an exhibition in his country, he once won first place - the most delicious tomato. Collectors describe its taste as sweet with hints of pineapple. To be honest, I felt pineapple notes only when I let the fruits hang longer on the bush and absorb as much sunlight as possible. And here is an almost ready pineapple in the middle lane - a really amazing variety. Medium-late, large-fruited, salad destination, bright sunny colors, resistant to diseases. Unfortunately, I have it growing in partial shade; maybe that’s why he didn’t immediately reveal his “pineapple nature”.
Important - The American variety Dixie Golden Giant has a unique taste with pineapple notes.
Pascal de Picardi - a guest from the USA, Dean Slater's selection: curly variety, as I call it. The leaves are openwork and twisted, the fruits are dense, sweet, pink with anthocyanin shoulders. An indeterminate variety, which is best kept in 2 trunks. Despite its “openwork”, it steadfastly endured bad weather, showing miracles of vitality and productivity.
Tomato took 4th place for productivity and beauty Great White Purple - an exotic variety in my collection. Delicate, with a soft pleasant sweetness, very fruitful. The fruits are medium in size, but there were also large-sized fruits - 150 g; cream-colored with purple coating - not tomatoes, but New Year's toys.
And finally, 5th place in the tomato marathon took Siberian tiger pink. Someone, after reading the article, will put it in the first place. The taste and color, as they say. The variety is certainly good: the fruits are sweet with a slight sourness, rich pink with dark shoulders, the bushes are very large and powerful. But here I didn’t have enough yield: maybe the plant just didn’t like our weather, maybe the place didn’t like it. Tomatoes are gentle creatures, almost not for them - they can be offended.
Do not be afraid to grow exotic varieties, dear friends! Hybrids are good only for productivity, but the taste is very lame. Yes, for three. For the soul, for dear ones and loved ones - plant the most delicious. But that's just my opinion. Your Olga.
