Tomato Pink Paradise: a paradise hybrid for our salad

A significant proportion of the available tomatoes are salad varieties that are not intended for canning. Fresh tomatoes should have excellent taste, which not all varieties can boast. It is believed that pink fruits are especially delicious. One such tomato is the Pink Paradise hybrid.

Description of tomato varieties Pink Paradise

There are many proven domestic tomato varieties, but when a hybrid of foreign origin appears on the market, enthusiasts immediately check how good it is. Tomato Pink Paradise F1 (translated - Pink Paradise) of Japanese origin met the expectations of the most demanding gardeners. Sakata tomatoes have always been famous for their high quality, and it turned out this time too. The hybrid was included in the State Register of the Russian Federation in 2007 and is recommended for personal subsidiary plots of all regions: both for open ground and for film shelters.

Pink paradise belongs to the list of indeterminate varieties, can grow up to two meters in height, therefore it necessarily requires the formation of a bush and systematic garter of the stems. The leaves are dense, regular in size, green. Resistance to most diseases, including fusarium and the tobacco mosaic virus, is very high, but late blight can be affected in bad weather. The first inflorescence is laid over the 5-6th pair of leaves. In terms of ripening, the hybrid belongs to mid-ripening, the first fruits ripen about 3.5 months after germination.

Pink paradise bushes grow very tall, especially in greenhouses

Fruits of the correct flat-rounded shape, with a slight ribbing, in a ripe state of pink color. They have 4 seed nests. The size of the tomato is average, the mass is about 130 g, and most of the fruits within the bush are almost the same size, although individual specimens grow to 200 g.

The fruits grown in the first two hands have the maximum mass.

The taste of tomatoes is rated as excellent, the aroma typical of tomatoes, strong. Appointment - salad, although not the largest tomatoes are quite possible and canned in standard glass jars. Productivity for the indeterminate variety is low and is about 4 kg / m2. Despite the fact that the skin of the fruit is tender, the density of the pulp allows you to transport the crop. On the bushes they do not crack. Fresh tomatoes are well stored (up to three weeks in a cool place). Collected immature, easily “reach” at home.

The fruits are smooth, pleasant color, beautiful

Advantages and disadvantages compared to other varieties

A feature of the Pink Paradise variety can be considered a combination of excellent taste and excellent presentation of the fruit, which is not always combined. Despite the high cost of seeds, this tomato is popular with amateur gardeners, and they plant it for sale. The main advantages of the variety are:

  • relative ease of care (except for the mandatory formation of the bush);
  • resistance to most diseases;
  • great taste;
  • excellent presentation;
  • transportability and long shelf life of fruits;
  • lack of cracking.

Among the shortcomings are the inability to use their own seeds (this is a hybrid), as well as the requirement for qualified bush formation. The yield, which some gardeners consider sufficient, is nevertheless worth recognizing as relatively low for such tomatoes that are able to grow to a height of two meters. However, a few years ago, Pink Paradise was recognized as one of the best pink-fruited tomatoes in the world.

It is difficult to compare the variety with other salad varieties, because their number is huge now. It is worth recognizing that in most indicators it is clearly higher than traditional varieties, known to us from ancient times. At the same time, among domestic varieties bearing pink tomatoes, there are representatives that should not be considered worse than the hybrid in question. And if, for example, the pink Bull heart has only good taste, then in many varieties (Mikado pink, Pink miracle, Pink flamingo, Pink Andromeda) it is excellent. However, not all of them are hybrids. Therefore, we must admit that Pink Paradise is not the best among the tomatoes of the same type, but it is among the best.

Features of tomato cultivation Pink Paradise

Growing a pink paradise tomato is easy; all procedures carried out at the same time are quite traditional. Almost throughout our country, seedlings are first grown in the spring.

Landing

The term for sowing seeds for seedlings depends on the region and on whether it will be replanted in a greenhouse or open ground. So, in the middle lane for growing tomatoes in unprotected soil, seeds are sown in a box on the 20th of March, for greenhouses - 2-3 weeks earlier. In any case, the seedlings should stay at home for about two months.

The seeds of the Pink Paradise hybrid, bought at the store, are ready for sowing, so it’s better not to do anything with them, you can sow dry. Soaking will allow only 1-2 days to approximate the time of emergence of seedlings, which is not significant. Tomatoes love picking, so first they are sown in any small box with a layer of soil from 5 cm thick. If the soil is not bought in a store, but is prepared from earth, peat and humus (1: 1: 1), it should be disinfected by spilling with a pink solution potassium permanganate.

Seeds are first sown in any suitable-sized container

Seeds are sown to a depth of 1.5–2 cm at distances of 3 cm from each other. It is better to cover the box with glass; after 5–8 days, shoots will appear at room temperature, which can withstand several days at 16–18 ° C in good light. In the future, seedlings are grown at room temperature, but at night it is desirable to reduce it by a few degrees. Seedlings dive into a large box or individual pots at the age of 10-12 days.

As soon as the first present appears over the cotyledonous leaves, the seedlings can be dived

For two months, the seedlings are moderately watered. If you take a good soil mixture, you can do without fertilizing. A week and a half before planting, the seedlings are hardened, periodically taking to the balcony. At this time, it already has at least 7–8 real leaves, a strong stem, and it happens that a nascent brush.

It is not necessary to ensure that the seedlings are long: the more stocky it is, the better

Tomatoes can be transplanted both in the greenhouse and in the open ground after undergoing the threat of frost and soil warming up to at least 14 ° C. The approximate scheme for planting tomato Pink Paradise is 40 x 60 cm. In a greenhouse, it grows more powerful, so they try to plant seedlings along the wall every 50 cm. Planting technique is usual: seedlings are slightly buried (and if extended, strongly planted obliquely), watered and mulch the soil. In the open field, it is desirable to build a temporary spunbond shelter. Immediately drive stakes about 1.5 m high or equip a trellis for tying plants.

Care

Tomato care consists of watering, cultivating, weed control, top dressing, forming a bush and tying up shoots. This hybrid is usually tied up and each fruit brush when the tomatoes grow. Water the bushes sparingly, stopping doing this with the beginning of fruit ripening. The first top dressing is given as soon as the seedlings resume growth in a new place, then the bushes are fed every 3-4 weeks. In the first half of summer, infusions of mullein or herbs are used, in the second - superphosphate and wood ash (20 g and a handful in a bucket of water).

This hybrid, like all indeterminants, is formed into one or two stems. The second stalk is one of the most powerful stepchildren, the rest are broken down, preventing them from growing more than 5 cm. When two stalks are formed, the ripening of the tomatoes is somewhat delayed, but the overall yield increases.

For better pollination in greenhouses, the bush is periodically stirred during flowering.

In the open ground, the bush is not allowed to grow to one and a half meters or more, pinching the top. All the same, the following fruits do not have time to ripen. In problem areas where late blight is raging, tomatoes are periodically sprayed with Bordeaux liquid for prophylactic purposes, stopping two weeks before the first harvest. Other diseases of Pink Tomato Paradise are practically not threatened.

Indeterminate tomatoes are not allowed to grow all summer, cutting off the top when they see fit

Pink at the beginning of the season, the yield was not very, but then he got excited and imposed many brushes. She showed it before cleaning, absolutely clean and healthy leaves.
