Yield reviews

Although originators indicate yield in film greenhouses within 11 kg / sq. m, according to the testimony of those who have already grown, the grade does not reach, to such a commodity shaft. In open ground, the yield is several times less.

Since the variety is late, vegetable growers are slightly unsatisfied with the variety. There are several reasons for this:

  • by the time of the ripening of the variety, the salad, tasty tomatoes are already satisfied by the vegetable growers;
  • bins, jars, casseroles of barrels, are already filled, and the “Matryoshka” only matures;
  • the variety is not quite suitable for processing into tomato products, because it is very dense and not very juicy;
Growing a Matryoshka tomato, the characteristic and description of the variety comes down to an interesting shape of the fruit and the fact that it behaves well in conservation. In this regard, he really recommended the seed as a tomato for whole-canning.

Disease and Pest Resistance

The advantages and disadvantages of the variety

Due to the fact that there are a lot of “matryoshkas”, and the people who leave their comments do not always correctly name the variety and the hybrid, as well as the originator, not only the regrader is possible, but also the appearance of information that does not correspond to reality and this should be taken into account.

Among the advantages of the "Matryoshka" variety:

  • interesting, pear-shaped form;
  • beautiful, rich color;
  • perfectly behaves in conservation, does not lose integrity;
  • good taste of canned products;
  • does not require staving

The disadvantages of the variety are as follows:

  • late maturation;
  • instability to phytophthora;
  • low yield.

Features of growing

If we consider the aspect that late ripening is a disadvantage, then fruiting can be accelerated by earlier sowing of seeds.

This tomato is impossible to grow without seedlings. Sowing seeds is best done in early March, if you have the opportunity to plant tomatoes in open ground in May. If not, then it is probably better to abandon the variety in favor of the earlier ones.

In order for crops to sprout faster, it is advisable to soak the seeds in a damp cloth and place them in a warm place for 34 days. Sowing should be done only with seeds that show signs of life. Maintaining the optimum temperature and humidity, the seedlings will appear quickly and thus you will “save” 10-15 days, which is very important for late tomatoes.

The variety of tomato "Matryoshka" is deterministic, undersized, it will not take much space on the windowsill and will not stretch much. However, for successful fruiting tomato needs a well-developed root system. That is why when sowing it is necessary:

  • provide seedlings with universal soil for seedlings;
  • in case of early sowing, provide additional light;
  • conduct a pick at the optimum time (2 true sheets);
  • to pick a sufficient amount of soil mixture.

When planting in the garden, it should be noted that the "Matryoshka" is not tall and they need to give the southern side, in relation to the higher.

Tomatoes will not require supports and dressings, because the fruits are not large and the shoots are not tilted.

Preventive actions

Since the Matryoshka tomatoes are not resistant to phytophthora, preventive spraying should be carried out timely and regularly.

The first spraying is necessary during the period of budding and flowering. Best used "Ridomil Gold." Having diluted 50 g in a bucket of water, you can process the bushes until the foliage is completely wetted. If weather conditions are not favorable, then re-processing is carried out after 10 days.

The second treatment is carried out at the stage when the tomatoes just started and it is better to do this with the Revus Top 12 ml per bucket of water.

The beginning of ripening is not a reason to abandon treatments, but you need to apply such a drug, the waiting period in which from treatments to fruit consumption is not great. For example, you can use the drug "Quadris" 6 ml per 5 liters of water.

The attitude to the “Matryoshka” from “Aelita” is not unequivocal. This variety was in the nomination "I will not plant more," but everyone has their own opinion and re-grading is not excluded. Perhaps it is you who fall for quality seeds and a tomato will like its interesting shape and impeccable view in banks.
