Tomatoes Verlioka and Verlioka plus: characteristics of varieties, the rules of planting and growing

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.

Variety Description and Yield

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.

TitleBushFetusProductivityRipening period
VerliocaSemi-determinant, medium-leaved bush, 6–10 fruits per brushRed, fleshy, roundish, weighing 65-110 g12−18 kg / sq. m or 4-5 kg ​​from one plant95-110 days
Verlioca PlusDeterminant plant, medium leafRed, flat-round, with weak ribbing at the peduncle, weighing 120−140 g9.0–9.5 kg per square meter101-105 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.

Landing Features

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:

  • optimal is the cultivation of tomatoes after cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, cauliflower, legumes, parsley and dill;
  • it is not recommended to cultivate tomato after pepper, eggplant, potato, physalis and tobacco;
  • in the process of pre-planting autumn preparation, a deep digging of the soil is carried out with the introduction of 3-4 kg of humus, 2-3 kg of compost and about 1 kg of bird droppings for each square meter of greenhouse ridges;
  • it is impossible in the spring to fertilize tomato ridges with fresh manure, since such introduction of organic matter often causes the lush growth of the vegetative mass to the detriment of the development of the ovaries;

  • too acidic soils can cause a decrease in the immunity of tomato bushes to damage by viruses, fungi and bacterial infection, therefore, if necessary, soil acidity indicators are regulated;
  • the soil should be breathable, loose and fertile, with sufficient indicators of water absorption;
  • the planting pattern of tomato seedlings is 50x40 cm, and the planting density should not exceed 7−9 plants per square meter.

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.

Growing rules

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:

  • after planting, abundant watering of tomato seedlings is carried out at the rate of 5-6 liters per plant and mulching of greenhouse soil is carried out, which helps prevent excessive evaporation of moisture and overheating of the soil, in addition, restraining the growth and development of weed vegetation;
  • in order to prevent damage to tomato bushes by late blight, it is necessary to strictly control the air humidity and temperature conditions in the greenhouse by means of regular ventilation;
  • optimal indicators of air humidity in the greenhouse when growing tomatoes should be at the level of 45-60%;
  • optimal soil moisture indicators when growing tomatoes in greenhouse conditions should not be more than 70−80%;
  • irrigation is carried out with warm water in the evening hours, as the soil dries, but it is best to equip the greenhouse structures with a modern and highly effective drip irrigation system, through which it is possible to provide the vegetable crop not only with high-quality metered watering, but also introduce liquid fertilizers necessary for the full development and abundant fruiting ;

  • for feeding, it is recommended to use complex fertilizers, which can be represented by "Ideal" or "Fertility";
  • to increase fruit setting, it is advisable to fertilize tomato bushes with a solution based on two tablespoons of wood ash and one tablespoon of superphosphate diluted in 10 l of warm water;
  • at the stage of active fruiting, tomato bushes need to be fed especially intensively, using sodium humate and nitrophosk for this purpose;
  • despite a fairly high level of disease resistance, it is necessary to timely preventive treatment of the aerial parts of plants, aimed at minimizing the risk of damage to the most harmful diseases and pests;
  • for the purpose of prevention, spraying with folk remedies can be used, but for the treatment of tomato bushes already affected by diseases, it is advisable to use insectofungicidal preparations of directed action.

Of no small importance when growing Verlioka and Verlioka plus tomatoes in greenhouse conditions is the timely staging and formation of plants.

Technology of formation and pinching

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:

  • determinant hybrids should be formed into one or two stems, pinching them during growth and development;
  • on each stalk there should be no more than two inflorescences, which will improve their development and positively affect the quality of the crop;
  • after each inflorescence, two leaves do not break off;
  • binding of a tomato bush is mandatory.

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.

Reviews gardeners

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.

Tomatoes: Sweet Varieties

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.
