Tomato Octopus f1 and other tomato wonders
Modern varieties of tomatoes are very diverse, and the choice becomes even richer. Let's talk about the most unusual of them:
Particularly distinguished tomato Octopus ф1, a new hybridwith unlimited growth (indeterminate) and intensive shoot formation. Also interesting are the new colored tomatoes, green and black (yellow and brown no one is surprised).
Tomato Octopus f1 - a real wonder, judging by theinscriptions on the package: a record harvest with 1 (!) plants can be 14,000 fruits, total weight 1500 kg (even if the real figures are lower, everything is exactly impressive), from shoots to fruits 115-120 days and excellent taste. This plant - a perennial (wild tomatoes in their homeland, too, many years) and more: this is not an ordinary bush, and tomato is liana, tomato is a tree, f1 The octopus can grow enough so that its crown will occupy an area of 40 square meters.
But do not rush to dream of such a miracle,grow such a giant tomato Sprut f1, you need a heated greenhouse and installation for hydroponics, and a huge crown requires a difficult garter. This is far from every gardener, but if you have such opportunities, then you can certainly try to grow a miracle-tomato. If you want, you can find detailed instructions on how to grow it, so this hybrid is more promising for farmers.
But to refuse an interesting novelty is also notworth it. Of course, record harvests will not work, but 10 kg from the bush, too, agree, not bad (such a crop from this tomato was obtained by truck farmers in an ordinary greenhouse). With this growing, the Sprat has its own peculiarities:
Sow it on the seedlings need as early as possible, in late January - early February, later plant the plants in the greenhouse.
In the greenhouse, you need to leave a long distance between the plants, considering further growth.
Ogorodniki, who tested tomato Sprut f1 onpractice, found out that he absolutely does not tolerate pasynkovaniya. By itself, this tomato lays brushes from 5-6 fruits through every 3 leaves. His shoots grow up to three meters with this cultivation (again, according to the experience of truck farmers).
This giant must be strongly "fed", and organic and mineral water and, of course, watered.
The excellent taste of the fruits of this hybrid is confirmed by everyone who grew it, truck farmers.
If you liked the tomato Octopus f1, then you cantry to propagate it vegetatively (seeds from hybrids do not get). To do this, at the end of the vegetation, cuttings should be cut from healthy shoots. Root them in a greenhouse, with the onset of colds transplanted into pots and keep the winter as an indoor plant. By spring, again plant the plants in the greenhouse and further grow as tomatoes from seedlings.
In general, this unusual tomato will be of interest to fans of experiments. Tomato Octopus f1 has not yet been explored by truck farmers, so go for it!
Green tomatoes also cause surprise,mature fruits and remain green. Pleasure with green fruits and taste, they are sweet with a tender flesh and thin skin. Almost that fruit. The varieties are called the Malachite Box, the Emerald Giant, the Swamp and the Green Fruit, the Kiwi, the Emerald Apple ..
Also interesting are white tomatoes, varieties with white fruits: Lotus, Zephyr, Snowball, White giant ... And striped: Striped apple, Silvery spruce ...
But quite a fresh vegetable garden novelty (though,imported), black tomato, and not dark brown, but absolutely black. He was represented at the agricultural exhibition in Israel by Seeds Technologies. The variety, called the "Black Galaxy", has black fruits the size of a plum with a high content of vitamin C and an unusual taste. Got it, thanks to crossing with wild kind of tomatoes. The black pigment in the fruits of this variety is similar to the one that colors blueberries. Black color becomes darker in bright sun. Well, let's wait for the "Black Galaxy" to become available for Russian truck farmers.
