Very early determinante tomatoes
 
Next year I will grow 34 plants determinate tomatoes. I will test them for resistance to cold and frost and watch the DTM. I will also try to hardening of the seeds and seedlings for planting at low temperatures. All the data from this experiment I will write and do picture documentation. I am looking forward to this job.
Around January 20 I want to sow the following varieties:
0-33
I-2
M-22
Saraev Gruntovyi
Saraev Druzhnyi
Saraev Otbor 1
Saraev Stoikyi
Saraev Shtambovyi
42 days
Latah
Kalinka
Jagodka
Darinka F1

A great experiment. Very interested in your results. Good luck Vladimir.

Neat. I have 42 Days. I'm also going to try Klukva v Sahare, Pendulina Orange and Red, Podarok Fei, Polarnij Skorospelyi, Roza Vetrov, Russkaya Dusha, Sladkij Ponchik, Sol Gold, Southern Nights, Taos Trail, and Utyonok. I believe that all of them are early determinates. I would like to find a good variety for an early crop in low tunnels.

Fantastic thread! Please note the taste as well.. :D

Cole Robbie, both Pendulinas are best for hanging baskets - or you use high pots. Otherwise the plants will crawl on the soil, not really good.

clara December 27, 2015 02:05 PM

42 Days, Kljukva W Sahare, Polarnij Skorospelyi, Roza Vetrov, Utyonok will surely do fine in a low tunnel. As to the others I'm not absolutely sure, but of course it depends on how "low" your tunnel is.

Sol Gold, Sladkij Ponchik were about 3 ft or a bit more in my garden.

Cole_Robbie December 27, 2015 02:12 PM

ok. Thanks. I will grow most of the plants in hanging baskets.

I grow on black plastic mulch stretched over ridges of soil. The smallest of the low tunnel designs I have seen has an 18 inch height. I had the crazy idea that the hanging basket varieties would grow to completion in a space that size. I think the vines can touch the plastic and be ok.

If I can find something to grow profitably in the 18" tunnel, I could buy the machine to lay the low tunnel that is pulled behind a tractor, and then grow hanging basket cherry tomatoes by the acre.

Gold Nugget was my earliest last summer. The taste was OK, I'd say good - the growth vigorous but manageable, very resistant to various ailments that attacked my other plants. My fave early cherry from now on.

Have you ever tried Koralik? I've never tried Gold Nugget, but I've been thinking for a while now that they would complement each other nicely, with the Koralik being a red cherry early determinate. They are soft, but I think they taste great. Very dependable, too.

Hi Vlad, your work will be very interesting for me. Thank you.

NarnianGarden December 28, 2015 04:09 PM

No, not yet, Bipetual. I got seeds for it, but could not find any spot for it, so it was off my list ... :)

You may want to consider 0-33, another of Saraev's varieties which Vlad is growing. In 2015 it was earlier, better tasting (for me) and much more productive than my prior go-tos - Kalinka, Arctic Fire & Polbig F1. I found it not quite as productive as Early Doll F1, but definitely earlier.

thanks
