Early ripe and high-yielding hybrid forms of tomato for protected ground under the names Verlioka and Verlioka Plus from the originators Gavrish and Giskov-Agro are able to form high yields even in low light conditions and at high humidity indicators, which earned high marks and positive reviews of domestic gardeners.
The description of Verlioka and Verlioka plus from the originator suggests both the presence of general qualitative indicators and some quite tangible differences that affect the choice of seeds for planting and growing tomatoes of one or another hybrid form in the conditions of home gardening.
|Verlioca||Semi-determinant, medium-leaved bush, 6–10 fruits per brush||Red, fleshy, roundish, weighing 65-110 g||12−18 kg / sq. m or 4-5 kg from one plant||95-110 days|
|Verlioca Plus||Determinant plant, medium leaf||Red, flat-round, with weak ribbing at the peduncle, weighing 120−140 g||9.0–9.5 kg per square meter||101-105 days|
Both hybrid forms are characterized by a high level of resistance to damage by the main, most common diseases of tomatoes, including TMV, fusarium and cladosporiosis, and also have excellent taste and high commercial quality of the fruit. In addition, the value of these hybrids is the stability of fruiting and the intensive and very early formation of a full crop.
It should be noted that the new and promising hybrid form of Verlioca Plus was bred by domestic breeders on the basis of the Verlioca hybrid that has proven itself in the Russian climatic conditions, but forms larger fruits, and the tomato bushes are less spreading, which allows for not too frequent and thorough pinching and plant formation.
Tomatoes Verlioka and Verlioka plus are recommended to be grown in seedlings, which allows the gardener, regardless of the region of cultivation, to obtain the highest possible yield. It is important to remember that the cultivation of tomato seedlings is the most difficult and crucial step in the cultivation of greenhouse vegetables. When growing greenhouse tomatoes, you should adhere to the general recommendations:
In the southern regions of our country, planting of 30-40-day-old seedlings should be carried out in April. In central Russia, tomato seedlings need to be planted in the last decade of May. If there is a risk of damage to young plants by return frosts, then it is necessary to install additional arcs in the greenhouse and pull any covering garden material over tomato seedlings. Further care for tomato hybrids "Verlioka" and "Verlioka plus" is carried out according to the technology of growing this vegetable crop.
In the greenhouse cultivation of Verlioc and Verlioc plus tomatoes related to determinant hybrids, it is necessary to pay attention to the following growing rules:
Of no small importance when growing Verlioka and Verlioka plus tomatoes in greenhouse conditions is the timely staging and formation of plants.
An important condition for obtaining high tomato yields in greenhouses is the correct formation of the bush of this vegetable crop. Formation activities should be carried out in compliance with certain rules:
The main advantage of determinant hybrids is the ability to significantly save greenhouse space. The cultivation in two stems is very popular and gives very good results when cultivating tomatoes Verlioka and Verlioka plus, due to the characteristic low planting of the first inflorescences.
Usually, after the formation of the sixth inflorescence, growth ceases, and the development of side shoots continues. Proper formation involves the transfer of the growth point to the lateral shoot, which helps to lengthen the fruiting period. It is important to remember that limiting the growth of tomatoes on the main shoots contributes to the artificial reduction of the fruiting period of the garden crop.
Any varieties and hybrids of new generation tomatoes are in high demand and attention among domestic vegetable growers. As a rule, all promising tomatoes have a whole set of qualities and varietal characteristics that allow you to get high yields even in adverse climatic conditions for a thermophilic vegetable crop.
According to amateur vegetable growers, the fruits of these tomato hybrids have a relatively thin, not stiff, but dense, well-protecting ripe fruit from cracking the skin. The pulp is juicy, with medium density and sugar content on the fault. Taste is very good. Fully ripened tomatoes have a very pleasant, sweet, completely non-watery pulp, which allows not only to use them fresh and for making salads, but also makes it possible to use in soups, side dishes, hot dishes, pickling, pickling, for making tomato paste and assorted vegetables.
Among the main shortcomings, gardeners note a not very high overall yield, the need for increased mineral nutrition, as well as such a fairly common phenomenon as an overloaded tomato bush with ovaries, as a result of which the level of resistance to various infections can decrease.
