Harvest varieties of tomatoes for open ground: large-fruited, early, tasty

Both a beginner and an experienced gardener want to know the most productive varieties of tomatoes for open ground... With a greenhouse it is easier, but not every summer resident has the opportunity to put a greenhouse on the site, and especially take care of it.

Tomatoes are one of the leading vegetable crops in terms of prevalence... It is difficult to find a summer cottage that does not have these fruits. This is despite the fact that the culture requires quite a lot of heat, light and care for normal maturation. On average, the growing season lasts from 3 to 4 months.

In the conditions of the Russian climate, tomatoes are most often grown through seedlings, planting them in closed ground, or ultra-early ripening varieties are chosen.

Low-growing varieties for open ground

Stunted ones can stop growing immediately after 5 brushes appear. These varieties can yield early crops.

"Riddle" - is considered the best variety. Tomatoes of this variety have a good color, which lays down evenly. The shape is round. If we consider other varieties that ripen in a short time, then it surpasses them in taste. One tomato has a mass of 150 g. For full ripening of the fruit, it will take about 2.5 months from the moment the tomato seeds are soaked.

A list of early outdoor varieties can be found here.

In the process of growth, the bushes develop very well, and their height is no more than 45 cm. The stem of the bush is strong, there are many leaves on the bush. These factors indicate that there is no need to tie up tomatoes additionally. Culture has one drawback: you need to eliminate growing stepchildren. Therefore, you need to take care of this variety constantly. Stepsons can be used to grow small bushes. These shoots have such a property as good rooting in the ground. Fruits appear on stepsons only 2 weeks later. If you do not pinch, then the tomato harvest will be large, but small.

The best outdoor varieties are presented here.

"Raspberry Giant" gives large fruits in the early stages. If we talk about this group of tomatoes, which gives a good harvest, then this variety is considered practically the only large-ripe one. It can weigh 700 grams. One brush is capable of producing 6 tomatoes. Every third sheet allows you to form sheets. The shape can be different, but mostly they are flattened or on the sides, or in height. The color of the tomatoes is pink, the aroma from the fruit comes out pleasant. If you take proper care of the bushes, then from one such bush you can get about 15 kg of pieces. "Raspberry Giant" ripens within 4 months. All this time, he is able to withstand various diseases.

"Anastasia" considered very early. The bushes are quite tall, they can even grow in 2 stems. An ovary is formed every couple of leaves. One brush is capable of giving 8 pieces. One tomato weighs 200 grams. If you take proper care of the plants, then you are guaranteed a good harvest. 12 kg can be removed from one such bush. At the tip, the tomatoes seem to taper. This feature characterizes this variety. The pulp of the fruit is juicy and soft.

"Roma" was bred in Holland by Dutch breeders. The variety is classified as mid-season. Tomatoes are like plums. The weight is only 100 grams. 20 pieces can grow on one brush. Most often, this variety is planted in order to pickle or preserve the fruits in the future.

These varieties are considered the best among the undersized determinant species.

Usually, the height of a bush of any of these species, as well as cherry tomatoes for open ground, does not exceed 1 meter. Since undersized varieties have a small root system, they will take up little space in the garden. Due to the fact that the fruits ripen very quickly, they are not afraid of such a disease as late blight. It usually spreads in August. By this time, undersized varieties have already yielded their crops. Usually tomatoes are sown in the first days of May or in the last days of April.

Standard tomato varieties are considered the most unpretentious, they are usually not stepchild, but require support. Due to the fact that many fruits ripen on the bush, the bushes can bend and break. Varieties belonging to these species tolerate cold well. What are the highest-yielding varieties of standard crops?

American ribbed is not a hybrid, but a tomato variety. According to my observations, capricious and painful. Most likely your plants are sick with some kind of disease. Tomatoes have a lot of them. Plant again, but disinfect the seeds for 20 minutes in 3% hydrogen peroxide, then do not rinse, but roll slightly damp in the foundation. Steam the soil for planting seedlings or pour it with a dark pink solution of potassium permanganate. The American ribbed has been planted for several years. The taste is not 5, but the shape is wonderful! Then I found on sale in Ukraine, where I live, almost the same Italian variety Florentino with the American ribbed fruit. It is taller, more productive and less susceptible to disease.
