Dutch varieties of tomatoes for open ground

Russia is a country of risky farming. In some regions, it can snow in May, making it difficult to grow popular vegetable crops, especially when it comes to open field. Summer residents start buying seeds in winter, and almost all of our citizens start growing popular cucumbers and tomatoes. Let's talk about tomato seeds. Varieties on the market Dutch selection have already gained popularity. Let's figure out which of them can be considered the best.

Dutch tomato varieties

To choose the right seeds, you need to determine which parameters are important for you:

  • yield;
  • fruit size and taste;
  • type of growth of the tomato bush;
  • resistance to diseases and viruses;
  • use of products;
  • commercial qualities.

During the Soviet period, problems from seeds on the territory of our country were not. Tomatoes have always been held in high esteem. Until now, some varieties of that time are planted on our plots. However, with the fall of the Iron Curtain, imported seeds began to arrive in Russia. Not all of them were of good quality, but today the market regulation is working at the proper level, so a large number of products from Dutch breeders are in special demand. In general, the market share between the companies is distributed as follows:

  • Russian companies (up to 80%);
  • Dutch companies (up to 15-17%);
  • French and Ukrainian (no more than 3%);
  • other seeds (no more than 2%).

What is the secret of the popularity of seeds from Holland?

The Dutch have been breeding tomato varieties for a long time. Tomatoes, as a heat-loving culture and demanding for the sun, quickly took root in a rainy country with a minimum number of sunny days a year. This is why Dutch tomato varieties and hybrids are considered very resistant. In addition, experts have done a tremendous job of breeding hybrids that are resistant to a huge number of common diseases and viruses in tomatoes.

It cannot be argued that the Dutch varieties are definitely better than ours, bred by local agricultural firms. When buying one or another bag of seeds, it is important to pay attention to the peculiarities of growing. Each plant has its own planting scheme, thermal and light regimes, features of the formation of a bush. All this must be taken into account.

It should be noted that it was the Dutch companies that succeeded in developing new high-yielding tomato varieties. Going to the store, be sure to pay attention to them.
