Monomakh's hat

A very common tomato variety that can be classified as a pink tomato variety. Tomatoes have a sweet and sour taste; the fruits have a slightly flattened shape. The variety is very resistant to various diseases, and with proper care, the size of the fruit can reach 900 grams.

Initially, the variety was created for open ground, but it is also suitable for greenhouses. The only feature that needs to be taken into account when growing Monomakh's Cap is that this tomato variety does not tolerate acidic soil. You can harvest up to eight kilograms of tomatoes from one bush.

Tomato variety "Gazpacho"

I have only had 3 seasons of experience growing this variety, but I already value it. The bushes grow to a height of about 40 cm. I plant 40-day-old seedlings in the garden at the end of May; the plant is resistant to disease. The fruits grow up to 80 g and are tasty. When ripe, tomatoes do not fall off the bush. Tomatoes are suitable for both fresh eating and preparation.

Black Crimea

Very popular are black tomatoes of the Black Crimea variety, which are tall varieties of tomatoes. In the garden bed, each bush needs space, since the bushes themselves are very spreading.

The features of this variety include the following qualities:

  • The fruits have a fleshy core and a sweet and sour taste.
  • From one bush you can remove from four to eight kilograms of fruit
  • Tomatoes are ideal for salads; juices and fruit drinks are also often made from them

Black Crimea has medium-early ripening; ripe fruits have a dark burgundy color. This variety of tomatoes can be planted in open ground and in a greenhouse.

Black Crimea needs careful care, including regular watering and fertilizers.

Tomato variety "Pinocchio"

This is a wonderful variety that produces small fruits, but this does not make it lose its attractiveness for me; I really like it. A productive variety whose fruits grow weighing about 20 grams. This variety can be grown in the garden and in a pot. The plant grows and bears fruit with virtually no care.

And in the past incredibly hot (2021) summer, there were only 5 bushes of “Pinocchio” and 3 more bushes of another small-fruited variety (unfortunately I don’t know the name, because it was given to me by an old lady on the bus - she sold seedlings in the regional center, and did not sell these bushes), which I first tried to grow in containers: I cut off the top of 5-6 liters of bottles, and having made holes in the bottom to allow excess moisture to escape, I planted the grown seedlings, filling the “pot” halfway with soil, and as it grew I simply added soil (about 10 in total). cm the soil level has increased from the initial one in the landing tank).

So, these “pots” of mine with small-fruited tomatoes, when at the end of June it became about +40 degrees in the shade, I removed them from the sun into the partial shade of the garden. Of course, I watered and fed them, like all the tomatoes in the garden. And these small bushes were able to please me with fruits all summer, for which I am very grateful. And in the garden, out of my 25 bushes originally planted, by the end of summer only 6 bushes remained, which began to bear fruit only after August 16, when it got colder to +27 during the day and 18-20 at night.

And before that incredible heat left (in July and early August it reached +42 in the shade), the flowers from my tomato bushes that were in the beds in the sun simply fell off, and the bushes themselves burned, as if in an oven - I watered them, shaded them , but at some point the foliage and twigs became lifeless, drying out. I’m very sorry for the dead bushes, as well as for my labors! Therefore, unfortunately, I cannot boast about the good harvest of last summer - such heat was the first time in my memory in our, generally not southern, regions.

Now I’m thinking about growing some of the tomato bushes that are not tall and with fruits that are not very large in size in containers so that they can be transported if unfavorable weather conditions suddenly occur. And until now, 2 Pinocchio tomato plants live on my windowsill, stretching out a little, and not in a compact bush, like in the ground in the summer (at the same time they bear fruit!), and it’s already January. I attach a photo of my favorite small-fruited varieties of red tomatoes.
