Classic varietal fruits are painted mainly in a pink shade, are distinguished by high fleshiness and high sugar content. In weight, they reach from 250 to 300 g, and in favorable conditions it is possible to cultivate vegetables up to 600 and 800 g. In shape, the tomatoes are round-flat, ribbed, with a pointed bottom.

Overview of varieties of tomatoes (tomatoes) for open ground

Varieties of tomatoes (tomatoes) for open ground

Many gardeners in the Urals and Siberia have almost stopped growing tomatoes in the open field... Greenhouse tomato varieties and hybrids are far superior to their street counterparts in yield and size. But to taste? There is nothing to argue about. Street ones tend to taste better.

So you need to know what varieties of tomatoes are best grown outdoors... We need early and super-early varieties. There are such varietiesthat ripen at the same time as early greenhouse varieties tomato and thus sharply increase the weight of the early harvest.

Indeterminate type of tomato plant - plants of unlimited growth. In the open field, such tomatoes reach a bush height of up to 1.5 meters.

Determinant type of tomato plant - plants with limited growth. In the open field, such tomatoes reach a bush height of up to 0.6 meters.

Determinant varieties of tomatoes are distinguished by standard or non-standard plant types.

Varieties of tomatoes (tomatoes) for open ground with a description

Variety "Apricot" F1 - a very early hybrid of tomatoes. When you go to the garden with super early tomatoes, you involuntarily catch yourself thinking that you are not just going for a tomato, but for an amber-yellow, unusually tasty “Apricot "... You can't imagine a better refreshing treat at the very beginning of summer. Hybrid this one is good in salads and rolled up in jars. Canned assortment of red and yellow tomatoes looks unusual, surprisingly beautiful. The variety is distinguished by a high yield load with the shortest growing season. A thickened planting is used according to the 40 × 40 cm scheme, the yield with this planting scheme is 12-15 kg per square meter. Stealing is not required.

Variety "Tsarevich" F1 - large-fruited hybrids for open ground. Huge fleshy fruits grow on it, the mass of which exceeds 250 g. The yield is slightly lower than that of "Champion"but high enough. Recent studies have shown that "Tsarevich" grows well and bears fruit abundantly without pinching.

Variety "Champion" F1 - in vegetable growing there is the concept of "marketability". By a set of qualities "Champion" belongs to the highest commercial outdoor hybrids. The fruits are large, beautiful, one-dimensional, of excellent shape and the same excellent taste. It is difficult to overestimate it, especially since the yield is outstanding. Fruit weight reaches 200 g. Passionate is not required, you just need to lighten the abundant lower brushes, open them completely to the sun. For this, some of the lower leaves shading the fruits are removed.

Variety "Atlant" F1 - the variety is very interesting. In terms of ripening, it comes on the heels of the earliest. But if you look at the weighty 200-gram fruits, then you can only put it next to "Champion" and "Tsarevich"... The yield is absolutely amazing. The planting pattern for these three hybrids is 60 × 50 cm.

Variety "Burlak" F1 - this variety is not like anything at all. Immediately after the first leaves appear on the seedlings "Burlaka" even experts can say: "What are your strong eggplants." And these are not eggplants at all, but tomatoes. But in the initial period of life, they surprisingly resemble exactly eggplants. And in the future ... Absolutely not dissected, solid leaves of a potato type (but no such kind of tomato has such leaves) and huge, very quickly ripening fruits weighing up to 500 grams. Of the early ripe tomatoes, this is, without a doubt, the largest-fruited hybrid. Tests have shown that "Burlak" in open ground, without any shelters, it feels equally well and bears fruit abundantly in the Tyumen region, in the northern taiga zone, and in Volgograd, red-hot from the scorching sun. And this is not some genetically modified mutant, this hybrid is obtained as a result of traditional breeding, which has been going on for five thousand years. We form, like all especially large hybrids, into one stem.

Variety "Vasily" F1 Is an amazing hybrid. By mid-July, there is a bush 60 cm high, literally strewn with even medium-sized fruits. Some have already turned red and are asking for the table, others are catching up with them, and on the upper stepsons "children" are abundantly tied, promising a long, stable harvest, creating an atmosphere of reliability and stability.

Variety "Record" F1 and grade "Debut" F1 - Not the earliest and not the largest. But it is they who will reward you for your very modest work with an absolutely incredible harvest. Powerful, dense branches bend under the weight of the fruit, 6-7.5 kg per bush, what more could you want! "Record" and "Debut" - real record holders in terms of productivity. Fruit y "Record" perfectly round, while "Debut" resemble giant plums. We did not make a reservation, mentioning very modest works. Both hybrids are perfectly do not need pinning... Planting pattern 60 x 50 cm.

Variety "Elena" F1 Is an all-weather tomato. Let the summer be cold and rainy, let all the summer sunny days be counted on one hand. And you will look at the bush Elena, and the heart rejoices: many pretty tomatoes are blushing on the vine. And he doesn't care about the cold. This hybrid gives off the entire crop in a very amicable manner. From a bush, you can collect up to half a bucket of excellent fruits at once. Passionate is not required, landing pattern 60 × 50 cm.

Variety "Zephyr" F1 - ripen at the same time as early tomatoes in the greenhouse. This is a strange and unusual sight. The first ripe red fruits are located at the very top of the bush, above the leaves, shine and are visible from a kilometer away. Fascinated by this magical picture, the guests of your garden will be silent for a long time, and then the whole evening they try to find out "where" and "what are you watering". Yes, we do not water anything special. This is a hybrid, that's the whole secret. The bushes are low, compact. Have "Zephyra" the fruits are oval, tasty.

Variety "Manzherok" F1 - if we want to hold a competition on suitability for canning among open field tomatoes, it turns out that the competitors have a hybrid "Manzherok" simply no. Neat plum fruits seem to be specially designed for rolling in jars. Its bush is low, standard, does not lie down, does not require pinning... Fruit ripening begins in the last decade of July, they ripen well, keeping quality is good. Planting scheme 60 * 50 cm.

Variety "Prokhor" F1 and grade "Aristarchus" - the climate has been changing quite a lot lately. The temperature changes are so dramatic that it is not easy for the old, classic tomato varieties to adapt to them. That is why Elena and two younger brothers appeared "Aristarch" and "Prokhor".

If the summer is good, hot, then hybrids "Aristarch" and "Prokhor" will just give a good harvest. And yet they are the kings of the cold summer. When flowers from ordinary, traditional varieties of tomatoes will fall off in heaps due to prolonged bad weather, "Aristarch" and "Prokhor " will stubbornly, brush by brush, tie large, beautiful fruits.

Bush at "Prokhora" more powerful and sprawling than “Aristarchus ", and the fruits in an unripe state are not green, but almost white, very beautiful, similar in color to tomatoes of the variety "White filling", but much larger.

Variety "Robinson" F1 - you need to sow before others. He is very unusual and interesting. Unlike all other varieties, its leaves are of a potato type, the fruits are flat, raspberry, up to 300 g in weight. With early sowing and good care, it gives a very high yield. From the fruits of this particular variety, the best tomato juice is obtained for lecho from sweet peppers and for tomatoes in their own juice.

Variety "Son of a Hero" F1 - the earliest tomato hybrid. One of the best varieties of tomatoes for outdoor use.

Variety "Timofey" F1 - the youngest brother Elena, "Aristarchus" and "Prokhora" took all the best that the brothers and sisters had, but turned out to be the most productive of the entire cold-resistant family.
