Overview of tomato hybrids agrofirma "Partner"
Nikolai Fursov: Dear friends, and here we are in the greenhouse of the Partner agricultural firm. Together with Vasily Ivanovich Blokin-Mechtalin. Vasily Ivanovich, show how much you survived, what did you grow up in your experimental plot?
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: We in the Moscow region are the middle strip of Russia, 50 kilometers from Moscow. In such weather conditions, as you can see, it is quite possible to get an excellent crop. Here is our hybrid called "High society".
Nikolai Fursov: Chic.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: This is an indeterminate hybrid, i.e. unlimited growth. The plant is formed into two stems. But even if this plant is formed into one stem, it will yield an equally good crop. Just then you need a greenhouse a little higher. This is an amazing hybrid. The yield of the crop is about 24 kg per square meter from these beautiful plants. He has plum-shaped tomatoes.
Nikolai Fursov: But they are dense, it is clear that the skin is so good, right? And in principle, for canning this is probably the best hybrid.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Well, I knew that you are a professional and know everything in advance. Of course, this is a tomato for preservation and for fresh consumption. And also it is very good at storage.
Nikolai Fursov: To diseases they are normal, how?
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Resistant to the main complex, also the “High society” is very resistant to the tobacco mosaic virus.
Nikolai Fursov: Many vegetable growers worry, seeing such large yields, they say: "Oh, it's probably genetically modified."
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: If we grew genetically modified seeds, then we would simply not have enough funds. I doubt that someone will have enough money, in principle, in Russia, the Russian agricultural company to grow genetically modified seeds. This is insanely expensive.
Nikolai Fursov: And how are they by weight? I see, they are quite aligned with each other. Maybe we will weigh it all the same?
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Fruits are all aligned in size. And this is a distinctive feature of the tomato "Great society". And he has no difference in weight, i.e. 100 grams-200 grams. This is a hybrid. What does hybrid mean? It is stable and calibrated. Let me cut this wonderful brush now. Oops.
Nikolai Fursov: Give me her. Wonderful of course.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: I allow this beauty now. Here he is. And weigh it on the scales. My scales show 110 grams. Well, the average weight of the fetus is 110 grams. Now I will cut it for you, see what it is inside. It is cut like clockwork. Look, fleshy, huh? Good in salting.
Nikolai Fursov: Give me a try, please.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Nikolai Petrovich, I don’t feel sorry for you. What do you like?
Nikolai Fursov: Delicious. Even more.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Come on, I'll show you one more interesting hybrid now - tomato “Lyubasha”. That's how he feels in the greenhouse. In the open ground, it was somewhere 80 cm, there is already a meter. Here, fruit ripening is friendly, even friendlier than in open ground, because the temperature, of course, is higher in the shelter. He loves temperature.
Nikolai Fursov: How do you fill the substrate so that there are tomatoes. Because many of our vegetable viewers, of course, simply won’t believe that you can collect so many tomatoes from one bush.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Here we make biohumus, here we make peat, here we make humus. After all this, a layer cake, the so-called that formed after application, we dig, plant seedlings. In principle, by the way, tomato "Lyubasha" can be planted directly by sowing seeds in the ground, but subject to shelter.
Nikolai Fursov: Make a small tunnel, just in case, so that spring frosts do not ruin the seedlings.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: If we are talking about the middle zone of Russia, in this case about the Moscow region, then certainly. But if we talk about the south of Russia, Rostov, there you can direct sowing, seeds in the ground without shelter. There, even under such conditions, the Lyubasha tomato grows in 80 days. He will still show himself on the good side. Here, let's pick a standard fruit. Here he is.
Nikolai Fursov: Well, beautiful, in general. Here are the folds so beautiful. Very beautiful.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Yes, it is such a feature. The average weight of the fruit, if we grow in a greenhouse, in closed ground, is about 130 grams. 134 grams. This is his average weight. But since I promised you to try it, I can not keep my promise. Here, take a look.
Nikolai Fursov: Well, beautiful, beautiful.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Three-chamber fruits. Interior. See a feature?
Nikolai Fursov: Of course, they are still more of a salad type.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: And how wonderful they feel in conservation. They are early, salad, but we tried them in preservation - amazingly. Let me give you a try, and you don’t want to preserve them, of course, because you want to eat them.
Nikolai Fursov: Wonderful.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Let's go, let's go to another interesting hybrid, it is called "Raspberry Empire".
Nikolai Fursov: Come on.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Well, it’s already ripe. This is unlimited growth, again. The color is raspberry. And the tomato has a very interesting feature - it has a nose.
Nikolai Fursov: So stretched as if. I look, not on all the fruits, by the way, some fruits without this guy guy.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: So we write that 70% of the fruit pulls the nose. The reasons that the first tomatoes that form are usually larger. And they originally came with a nose, just a nose outstretched. This is a very sweet tomato. By introducing this hybrid, we worked on taste. Of course, we did not forget about the characteristics of disease resistance, hybrid-raspberry empire, its productivity. You weigh it how much the fruit weighs.
Nikolai Fursov: 127 grams, well, 130 will be considered.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: 130 grams, although there are fruits 160 grams are found. Those. we say that hybrids, they are usually all calibrated.
Nikolai Fursov: Is it just a salad type tomato or can it be used somewhere in preservation, can it be used for tomato paste or some adjika should be added?
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: It’s fleshy tomato, so it’s amazing to use it on adjika, on tomato paste. Plus, it is of salad type, i.e., despite the fact that it is fleshy inside, it is very pleasant to use it in a salad. But preserving it is not the best option, because they have very thin skin, very thin, and when preserving it starts to come off the tomato and the tomato remains naked, and the skin is separate.
Nikolai Fursov: If you just pickle, then yes, but if, for example, in tomato and without skin, I think that the chic will work.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Wow. Probably chic. Well, as I said, look, it's quite meaty. Four-chamber fruits.
Nikolai Fursov: Dear friends, the taste is extraordinary. Sweet, very pleasant sourness. Really thin skin. Wonderful tomato. I hope that you still try a lot of this hybrid and you will like it.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Nikolai Petrovich, I also wanted to cut a brush for you.
Nikolai Fursov: Wrap home with you. By the way, they promised to give me some other canned goods as a gift. I just recalled.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Well, if I promised, let's go for canned goods.
Nikolai Fursov: Let's go to.
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Please accept gifts. This is the Velikosvetsky tomato in the bank, as promised, and the catalog with our branded products.
Nikolai Fursov: Thank you so much! Dear friends, goodbye, all the best to you, see you next time!
Vasily Blockin-Mechtalin: Goodbye!
