Superdeterminate tomato varieties

The variety of tomatoes is huge. In addition to the fact that the culture is divided into varieties and hybrids, the plant is determinant and indeterminate. Many vegetable growers know that these concepts mean short and tall tomatoes. There are also semi-determinant varieties, that is, something in between the first and second species. But what super-determinant tomatoes are not understandable to all novice vegetable growers. Now we will try to figure it out with this definition.

Introducing Superdeterminate Tomatoes

The answer to the question that these are superdeterminate varieties of tomatoes is very simple. This crop was bred specifically for obtaining early tomatoes in the spring in greenhouses and in the garden. Moreover, this group includes not only varieties, but also hybrids. The superdeterminate culture quickly and amicably gives up the entire harvest, after which a new ovary is not formed.

Superdeterminate tomatoes have a subspecies - ultra-early ripening. Such crops make it possible to obtain super-early tomatoes before the onset of mass destruction of plants by late blight. Among these varieties are Moskvich and Yamal. Stamp cultures do not throw out stepchildren, they themselves form a bush that does not require a garter to the stakes. The high yield of varieties allows you to collect up to 10 kg of fruits from 6 bushes. The Moskvich variety bears fruit perfectly in the garden without shelter. If you take the tomato "Japanese dwarf", then this bush throws out a few stepsons. However, the shoots grow short. Due to them, a bush is formed, densely covered with small sweet tomatoes.

By plant height, all superdeterminate tomatoes are undersized. We can say that these are the same determinant crops with a stem height of 30 to 60 cm, only their growth stops after the formation of three brushes. Another feature of superdeterminate tomatoes is that the plants love a thickened planting. Flowering occurs early. The first inflorescence appears above the 6th leaf, and then follows each other or through 1 leaf. The growth of the stepson ends after the appearance of 3 inflorescences.

Important! If all stepchildren are removed from the plant, the bush stops growing. Naturally, after such actions, a good harvest should not be expected.

At the very beginning of the development of the plant, 1 shoot is left under the first inflorescence. The main stem will grow from it. At the next pinching on the same shoot, 1 stepson is similarly left under the first inflorescence.

Advice! Superdeterminate bushes can be formed not only with one stem, but with two or even three, at the request of the gardener.

Bush formation methods

There are three ways to form superdeterminate tomato bushes:

  • The first method of shaping involves removing all lateral shoots about 1 month before the last harvest. Further, the plant grows with 1 stem.
  • The second way is to leave 2 stems on the plant. A new shoot is obtained from a stepson growing from under the first inflorescence.
  • Well, the third method, as you already guessed, involves the formation of a bush with three stems. In this case, we already have a second stepson from under the first inflorescence, and the third shoot is left from under the leaf of the second inflorescence of the previous stepson.

Forming with multiple stems is more time consuming but produces better yields.

Attention! Pinching leaves and pagon plants on a plant should be done on a sunny warm day. From this, the pinching site will dry out quickly, which excludes the penetration of infection.
