Bolivar tomato from breeder L.A. Myazina is a hybrid obtained by the classical method of selection (hand pollination). Bolivar belongs to the group of large-fruited tomatoes for open ground. During the work, certain goals were pursued:
- increasing resistance to diseases and bad weather conditions;
- improved taste;
- large fruits;
- early maturation;
Early ripening of the hybrid allows it to be grown in areas with a short summer.
Description of large-fruited tomatoes Bolivar F1 meets the wishes of most tomato lovers. The hybrid for open ground has a high yield - 4 kg of fruits from a bush, this is 1.5 times higher than the productivity of older hybrids.
The new generation tomatoes contain more useful elements than the old varieties. Summer residents will love the valuable characteristics:
- presentation of fruits;
- transportability of tomatoes;
- excellent pickling qualities of tomatoes.
Bolivar F1 tomatoes are planted according to the 60 * 60 cm scheme. When placed on 1 sq. m. 2 bushes get the maximum yield.
The fruits are large, red, tasty with fleshy pulp, ripen on 80 days from germination. The declared weight of fruits is 200-250 g. Due to early ripening, the bushes do not suffer from phytophthora. Bolivar tomato fruits are versatile, their use in cooking is diverse.
Tips from Myazina
Lyubov Anatolyevna conducts seminars where she gives advice to amateur vegetable growers on the correct cultivation of tomatoes. Let's take into account some of them. Perhaps they will help increase the yield of our beds.
We calculate the sowing time as follows. Landmark - the approximate date of landing in the ground, you need to subtract the sum of days from it:
- the age of seedlings ready for transplantation is 45–55 days;
- 7 days for seed germination;
- 5 days for adaptation after a pick.
In regions with short summers, there should be a bud on the second cluster before planting in the ground. In this case, all the fruits will ripen.
In order to get strong, healthy seedlings of early-ripening tomatoes by June 10, seeds for seedlings must be sown from April 1 to April 10. Having planted seedlings with buds in these terms, the first tomatoes are removed in the open field in mid-July.
About sowing seeds
Treat the seeds before sowing. First, place them in a weak solution of potassium permanganate for 20 minutes. To prepare it, dissolve 1 g of manganese crystals in an incomplete glass of water. The next stage of processing is soaking tomato seeds in any hormonal preparation:
Growth stimulants help accelerate seed germination, increase their immunity and stress resistance of tomatoes. Seeds are sown in the ground the next day, without waiting for them to hatch.
Sow the seeds to a depth of 2 cm. Compact the earth, then the sprout, making its way through the dense layer of soil, will throw off the shutters from the seed. In order for the seedlings to be friendly, always cover the box with seeds tightly with foil.
Tomato seedlings absorb nutrients well from the soil at night temperatures of 14 ° C, daytime temperatures - 16 ° C. Under optimal conditions, tomato seedlings form good roots, more flowers are laid.
Higher temperatures provoke excessive stem growth in seedlings, weakening of the roots and fewer flowers.
Influence of watering on tomato taste and seedling quality
Do not put boxes with seedlings on cold windowsills, so that the soil does not overcool, you need to put any warming material under them. Do not moisten the soil too much, the seeds will not have enough oxygen. Use only warm water for irrigation.
The agronomist believes that the quality of irrigation influences the taste of ripe tomatoes. In temperate climates, watering and loosening tomatoes in the open field should be finished when the fruits on the bushes begin to ripen. After harvesting ripe fruits, watering can be resumed.
The first generation hybrid Bolivar F1 was bred not so long ago, but on the Internet it is easy to find reviews of summer residents who grew it. Opinions vary, but mostly positive. Summer residents are more discussing schemes for the formation of a bush and the need for pinching. Opinions differ on these issues. Some believe that there is no need to pinch, others prefer to form 3-4 stems and remove unnecessary stepsons.
