Unusual tomato Fig pink and its analogue Fig red, as well as yellow-orange in color tomato Fig yellow - at the peak of interest of lovers of exotic tomatoes. The new "tomato series" from the Russian company "Gavrish" deserves close attention of amateur vegetable growers. There is not a single negative review of these varieties. The pink-fruited version is the sweetest.
Let's consider the features of the variety in more detail.
The name of the variety justifies itself. A common plant of the Solanaceae family seems to grow a fig: these tomatoes resemble the fruits of a fig tree in taste.
The illusion of a fruity delicacy arises: pure sweetness and rich aroma. There is no trace of "tomato" sourness. Increased sugar content is observed even in those fruits that were plucked green and ripened outside the bush.
The variety has not yet been included in the State Register, its genetic line is not uniform.
The shape of the fruit is memorable, but it can be twofold. On some bushes, tomatoes are pear-shaped, slightly resembling the well-known Truffle variety (Bulbs). By the way, fig berries have a similar shape. And on some bushes, fruits grow round, strongly flattened from the bottom and from the top, as in the picture from a pack of seeds from "Gavrish". Both the one and the other type are united by a clearly expressed uniform ribbing, almost an "accordion", as if dissecting along most of the surface.
The cut shows atypical, hypertrophied multichamber fruits. Sometimes (especially with a lack of nutrition for the bush), small voids are observed inside, as for stuffing, but this is rare. In general, tomatoes do not look ugly - on the contrary, the tomatoes are quite even and very beautiful.
In our minds pink tomato fruits are strongly associated with high taste. This is the favorite "tomato" color of many vegetable growers. Even the classic red tomato is less attractive.
For a pink fig tomato, it is more appropriate to talk not so much about pink as about a rich light raspberry shade of peel and pulp. The top is sometimes green, which disappears in full biological ripeness.
Another important characteristic is the fullness of the fruit. The average weight ranges from 300 to 400 grams. With a lower bar of 200 grams, the maximum weight is four times more. Tomatoes in 400 - 600 grams are not uncommon. Each brush carries 3 - 5 pieces of such "handsome". Up to seven kilograms of "vegetable figs" are formed on one bush per season.
The main harvest is spent on colorful fresh salads. Smaller fruits are suitable for salting. It is also good to dry figs pink.
The tomato will taste like raisins. Juice (without added salt), which is very useful for baby and dietary food, even with increased acidity of the stomach, will also seem to be fruit.
Fig pink belongs to the category of medium early. Differs in an extremely long-term yield of the harvest. It surpasses most other varieties on this basis. This is due to the focus on continuous growth.
Plants are striking in their strength even in the circle of similar indeterminate tomatoes. Powerful stems are capable of growing up both two and three meters. The limit is only the height of the greenhouse and climatic restrictions. The description of the variety as predominantly greenhouse is quite natural. Only in the southern regions can a tomato be planted in the open air, by putting it on tall, strong trellises. In any conditions, sprawling bushes require competent shaping.
Like any vegetable crop, this variety requires adherence to some agricultural rules to get the most out of it.
Since the variety is by no means late in terms of ripening, sowing too early for seedlings is not recommended. The optimal time for the middle zone and regions similar in climate is the beginning of March.
The pick is made when the first pair of true leaves grows back, not later.
Young seedlings are prone to stretching, so additional lighting is desirable. Observance of a moderate temperature regime is necessary. Perhaps the use of the drug "Athlete".
Seedlings are transferred to the greenhouse at the stage of laying the first flower cluster. You should not be late: there is a risk of losing the first ovaries.
Formation and garter principles
- On one square meter, greenhouses have 3 - 4 seedlings.
- A strong, well-thought-out garter eliminates unpleasant "surprises". Weak supports lead to breakage of bushes under the weight of the crop and powerful vegetative mass.
- The planted young plants must be tied up as soon as possible - they grow very quickly.
- During the growing season, not only the stems are fixed, but also large brushes.
- Fruit size and yield directly depend on timely pinching. In pink figs, lateral shoots do not grow very actively, but their regular removal is necessary. The variety is grown in one stem (under especially favorable conditions - a maximum of two stems).
- When the first brushes are formed, the lower leaf layer is removed.
- About a month before the expected end of the growing season, pinch the top of the bush.
Powerful, tall, large-fruited varieties absorb a huge amount of various substances from the soil. Without the organization of enhanced nutrition, it is impossible to get the desired harvest.
In addition to preliminary dressing of the root zone, root and foliar feeding with organic and mineral fertilizers, humates and microelements is arranged 2 - 3 times a month. The use of organic matter on meaty varieties is mandatory... The soil should be moderately moist at all times, with a good layer of mulch.
Compared with similar varieties - non-hybrid, greenhouse, sweet-fruited, - Pink figs are much less infected with fungal diseases. It is possible to grow it without treating the bushes with pesticides. But in the event of an attack by dangerous insects (like the greenhouse whitefly), the struggle for the harvest will become a necessity.
