In search of the perfect cucumber, you can pause on a hybrid of Perfection itself. The bush grows unrestrictedly upward, in each bosom bouquets of cucumbers with excellent taste are formed. But this hybrid appeared in the climate of the Chelyabinsk region and in another region may not show the qualities declared by the manufacturer.
This hybrid is not in the State Register of Plants. It was bred at the Chelyabinsk Experimental Station, the official sellers are: the Garden online store (Chelyabinsk) and the Uralsky Dachnik company (Miass, Chelyabinsk Region). Perfection itself is sometimes presented as a Siberian cucumber selection, which gives rise to the illusion that it can be grown and obtained the promised harvests in regions of extreme agriculture, and even more so in the south.
Cucumber seeds Perfection itself is distributed by the company "Uralsky Dachnik"
Chelyabinsk is located on the border of Siberia, but in the very south of the Urals, south of the Moscow region. A temperate continental climate prevails here, summer temperatures are already established in May, but there is no extreme heat. In such conditions, perfection itself shows its best qualities. It is not surprising that gardeners living in the south, where the summers are hot and dry, and in the north, where they are short and cool, leave negative reviews about the hybrid without receiving the promised yield.
Perfection itself is called collectible on the Uralsky Dachnik's website; it is included in a series of super-bundled cucumbers. Other hybrids of the same selection belong to it: Beam splendor, Envy to everyone, RMT, Siberian garland, Mels. Producers promise up to 400 fruits from a bush of each of them, that is, 10 times more than from a regular variety. This justifies the high price. In some cities, 5 sunflower seeds are sold for 125 rubles.
Perfection itself grows as an indeterminate bush, that is, the main whip develops throughout the warm period until frost. A large number of stepchildren are growing along its entire length. In the bosom of each leaf, 3–6 cucumbers are tied. The first ones appear 37-30 days after germination.
According to the descriptions on the Uralsky Dachnik website, zelents grow up to 8-10 cm in length, their surface is covered with tubercles and white thorns. But there are already several reviews of absolutely smooth fruits growing from seeds called Perfection Itself. Moreover, lumpy and smooth cucumbers grow from one package, which indicates a misgrading.
Good taste of cucumbers No one disputes the perfection itself, the pulp is dense, crispy, aromatic and sweet, never bitter. Purpose - universal: consumption in natural form directly from the bush, preparation of salads, okroshka, pickles, canning.
The yield of the hybrid in the native region is 27–30 kg / m². In addition, Perfection itself is free from powdery mildew, cucumber mosaics and olive speck. Resistant to extremes of night and day temperatures.
This cucumber is a parthenocarpic hybrid, that is, self-pollinating, can be grown in a greenhouse, greenhouse and open field. The more warm days you provide this hybrid, the higher its yield will be. In its permanent place, it is sown with seeds and planted with seedlings.
The optimum temperature for cucumbers during the day is +24 ... +28 ° C, at night +18 ... +22 ° C.
Planting / sowing dates: in the greenhouse - in early May, in open ground - in early June. Seedlings should have 3-5 true leaves, their optimal age is 30 days. Place no more than two bushes per 1 m².
There are growing recommendations on the seed bag. In particular, it is necessary to form strictly in one stem according to the following scheme:
When the stem of the cucumber itself reaches its highest point, do as you see fit:
After collecting the first greens, feed with nitrogen fertilizer, this will give an impetus to the growth of the lash and new ovaries. Can be poured with infusion of organic matter (nettle, manure, droppings). Then, throughout the entire fruiting, apply complex fertilizers for cucumbers every week, containing nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and trace elements (Fertika, Agricola, BioMaster, etc.).
When growing in a greenhouse, it is recommended to keep a barrel of fermented grass or manure nearby. The emitted carbon dioxide will facilitate the filling of the cucumbers. The rest of the care is abundant watering. The soil in the garden bed should be constantly moist and loose, not soggy and dense. Zelentsy must be collected every 1–2 days, preventing their overgrowth.
Cucumber hybrid The producer calls perfection itself super-bundle. Cucumber shows high yields not in every region; it requires special care: sparse planting, formation without stepsons, increased watering and feeding.
Cucumbers Meringue F1: early, self-pollinated (parthenocarpic) variety of gherkins for open ground and greenhouses, fruits have a universal purpose.
Currently, breeders have bred a large number of varieties and hybrids of cucumbers. Moreover, it is hybrids that are most in demand among vegetable growers, since they differ in improved characteristics of yield, resistance to diseases. But they also have one more quality that is especially appreciated by housewives: the absence of bitterness in fruits at the genetic level.
One of these hybrid cucumbers is Merenga, whose fruits do not have bitterness even when overripe. Other positive and negative characteristics of the variety, the nuances of growing Merengue cucumbers, reviews of vegetable growers and much more will be described in the article below.
The term "gherkin" has French roots (cornichon), used in breeding to refer to a group of small-fruited varieties of cucumber. In everyday life, this is the name for all zelents, the length of which does not exceed 8-9 cm, but this is not quite the correct name.
Common varieties with fruit lengths of 12-15 centimeters and above with early harvesting, when the greens are still short, are considered immature, not fully ripe. They can be processed using for salting, marinades, conservation.
But in true gherkin type cucumbers, at the genetic level, the maximum length is laid - no more than 9 cm (for pickles - no more than 5-6 cm), and they no longer grow. These greens reach full biological maturity, usually with a small tuberous prickly skin, dense, with a crunch and without voids (see photo). The length is distinguished:
Hybrid forms of parthenocarpic and bee-pollinated types, bundle arrangement of ovaries and usual, with white or black thorns have been bred. In the main domestic agricultural firms, almost all of them have positions of gherkin-type cucumbers in their crop lines. Also on sale are seeds of foreign selection, gherkins for open and closed ground (greenhouses, hotbeds).
They are grown in shelters (mainly), as well as in open ground conditions. They differ in yield (when appropriate conditions are created), unpretentious care. They are demanding on nutrition, especially varieties of bunchy "bouquet" type of fruiting, since for the formation and maturation of a large number of zelents on one bush, the entire spectrum of macro- and microelements is required.
Tomato 33 Bogatyr belongs to the Solanaceae family. This variety is medium ripeness - appetizing tomatoes appear on the bushes three and a half months after sowing the seeds. Suitable for growing in greenhouse conditions, as well as in the open field.
The plant is determinate, that is, medium-sized. The bush grows on average up to one and a half meters in height, does not fall apart, but requires support. It is unpretentious in cultivation and care, it perfectly tolerates heat and the effects of various diseases. With proper care, it produces an excellent harvest. From one square meter, you can collect up to 7 kilograms of tomatoes, in a greenhouse - 10-11 kilograms. Produces more yield when formed in two stems.
Fact: 33 heroes are suitable for growing in any climatic conditions, therefore this variety is very common in all latitudes.
The fruits of the variety grow large, cuboid in shape. The average weight of one tomato is 400-450 grams. The peel is smooth, red. The pulp is fleshy, friable, very tasty. Tomatoes of this variety are well suited for fresh consumption and for making tomato juice and pasta. However, for canning, it is better to choose other varieties with smaller fruits.
The plant stops growing when 2 to 6 brushes are formed on the stem. The top of the plant is the last tassel that has grown. The bush continues to grow from the stepsons on the lower leaves.
Cucumber "Graceful" has the following main advantages:
Disadvantages of the variety:
Tomato "Tretyakovsky" is a hybrid that appeared as a result of the work of the Ural breeders. The culture was bred by crossing several varieties (to obtain improved characteristics). In 1998, it was registered for inclusion in the State Register, as an independent species. After a year of testing, it was recognized as a variety that meets the declared characteristics.
According to the description of the originators, the Tretyakovsky tomato belongs to the middle late, indeterminate species. This is a rare tomato variety that does not stop growing throughout the growing season.
If the height is not artificially limited, it can reach 6 meters. To halt growth, it is necessary to break the top of the main trunk at the desired level.
As a rule, the height adjustment corresponds to the height of the greenhouse and the trellis installed in it.
The tomato variety is recommended to be grown in closed areas and open ground. For the South and North Caucasian districts, there is no need for a film shelter.
The Tretyakovsky variety is cultivated in a temperate climate only in greenhouse structures.
A high yield rate is achieved by forming a bush with two trunks: the first is the main stem, the second is the left strong stepson. This method helps to unload the tomato without losing fruiting.
External characteristic of tomato:
Attention! Tomato variety "Tretyakovsky" is medium late: 4.5 months pass from the moment the seedlings are planted in the ground to the biological ripeness of the fruits, the first tomatoes are harvested in late August - early September.
According to vegetable growers, the "Tretyakovsky" tomato variety bears fruits of the same mass, the weight of a tomato does not decrease as the next brushes are formed. Tomatoes do not ripen at the same time, the last circle in the open field is torn at the stage of technical or milk ripeness. Green tomatoes ripen well in a darkened room. Characteristics of the Tretyakovsky variety:
Advice! The fruits are suitable for consumption only after full ripening, unripe tomatoes have hard, white fragments in the pulp.
According to its characteristics, the Tretyakovsky hybrid tomato is a high-yielding crop. Thanks to the genetic material of the parental varieties, it tolerates low temperatures well. It bears fruit both in a sunny place and in a shaded area. It does not require special agricultural technology, is practically not affected by pests, and is resistant to most infections.
The indeterminate variety "Tretyakovsky" refers to high-fruiting tomatoes. The formation of a bush with two shoots eliminates the need to remove the brushes and part of the fruit. The hybrid is adapted to the weather conditions of a temperate climate. Indoor cultivation does not require additional heating or lighting.
In the open field, tomatoes feel comfortable both with an excess of ultraviolet radiation, and with its lack. A rainy summer and drought do not play a big role in the yield of this tomato variety.
In an open area, the degree of fruiting will be less due to the height of the plant and the density of planting.In greenhouses, one tomato gives up to 7 kg, three tomatoes are placed per 1 m3, the yield is up to 20 kg. On an open seat up to 18 kg.
The collection falls on 130 days after disembarkation of seedlings (August, September).
The "Tretyakovsky" tomato variety is grown in greenhouses, on small farm plots for sale and personal use.
On a production scale, the hybrid is not cultivated due to the high price offer for planting material. On the backyard and summer cottages, the harvested tomato is consumed fresh.
Suitable for juicing, homemade tomato paste, whole preservation, salting.
Tomato variety "Tretyakovsky" is a selection crop, which took a certain amount of time to breed. Tomatoes grown in closed areas are immune to pests, insects do not parasitize on crops.
In the open field, the larvae of the Colorado potato beetle are affected. Bacterial, viral, or fungal infections do not occur in the southern regions.
In temperate climates, high humidity in greenhouses can provoke tobacco mosaic on the leaves or cladosporiosis.
The conditional disadvantages of the "Tretyakovsky" tomato include the need to form a bush, a garter, and the removal of stepsons. Tomato variety "Tretyakovsky" - a hybrid of one growing season, seeds from the parent plant the next year will give other tomatoes, radically different from the varietal characteristics of the tomato "Tretyakovsky".
The Tretyakovsky tomato is a hybrid that does not produce seeds for the next generation. Planting material is purchased on Internet sites or in retail outlets. The seeds are treated with an antifungal agent, no additional disinfection is required.
The laying of tomato seeds is carried out in early March (for OG), in mid-February for planting in a greenhouse. Pre-prepare the soil, consisting of soil, river sand, compost (in equal parts). The mixture is calcined in the oven for 15 minutes, laid out in a landing container (glasses, containers, improvised material). Sow tomato seeds "Tretyakovsky" as follows:
After the appearance of young shoots, the cover is removed, the tomato is fed with complex fertilizers, watered as the top layer of the earth dries up. After the formation of the third leaf, the variety is seated in separate glasses made of plastic or peat in a larger container.
Tomato seedlings of the "Tretyakovsky" variety are planted in open ground at the beginning of May, a prerequisite is the warming up of the soil not lower than +150 C.
If there is a risk of frost at night, cover the tomatoes with foil. Two plants are placed on 1 m², a distance of 0.6 m is maintained between the rows.
Planting material is planted in greenhouse structures in the second half of March. On 1m² - three plants in a checkerboard pattern.
After determining the "Tretyakovsky" tomato for a permanent vegetation site, it is recommended to carry out the following measures:
The root circle is mulched with peat, preventive treatments are carried out.
The Tretyakovsky tomato, like any nightshade crop, requires preventive measures:
Tomato "Tretyakovsky" is an indeterminate variety of medium late fruiting. Grown in greenhouse structures and unprotected areas. Resistant to diseases and pests. It is cultivated on a private backyard and agricultural farms. Fruits with a good gastronomic value, universal use.
Bunch cucumbers have many undeniable advantages:
Bundle arrangement of cucumber ovaries
Conditional disadvantages include the need for frequent fruit collection for the full maturation of new ones. This inconvenience will affect mainly summer residents who do not have the opportunity to visit the site every day. They need to pay attention to varieties that are less demanding to care for.
