7 best varieties of tomato for open ground resistant to late blight

Late blight is a serious disease affecting both the green part of the tomato and the fruit. What kind of methods were not used by man in the fight against fungal infection, but for the time being it has not been possible to defeat it 100%. As an option to use for planting in open ground and greenhouse hybrids and varieties resistant to phytophthora.

Advantages and disadvantages of late blight resistant tomatoes for open ground

The characteristic of varieties that show resistance to the disease is early ripening. Plants enter the active phase of fruiting before the mass epidemic begins.

Late blight, as well as other diseases, affects primarily young shoots or underdeveloped bushes. The advantage of early ripe tomatoes is that they have time to grow and grow strong, which means to gain strength and resist the rapid development of harmful microorganisms.

The defeat of the fetus tomato Phytophthora
Hybrids are tolerant of tomato seeds on the market. They are obliged by good immunity to breeders who put a lot of effort to get a culture that easily tolerates a moist environment.

Belonging to plant-resistant varieties of tomatoes does not guarantee complete security. Gardeners should not relax in terms of preventive measures and the implementation of agricultural practices.

Next, we will give a brief description and description of the varieties of phyto-fluorine-resistant tomatoes for cultivation in Russia, Belarus and the Moscow region.

The best varieties of plant-resistant tomatoes

Cardinal

Culture mid early ripening, from emergence to technical ripeness passes on average 100 days.

Tomato features: the width of the bush reaches 60 cm, strong immunity, consistently high yield (over 5.5 kg).

Betta

From the emergence of sprouts to harvest passes just 85 days. Bush compact size, up to 50 cm.

Betta tomatoes curtain on average 50-70 gr., they have a rounded shape, slightly flattened, the skin color is bright red.

  • joint germination of seeds and the rapid ripening of tomatoes;
  • high transportability;
  • universal application.

Annie

The hybrid is bred by domestic breeders, the value lies in early maturity and high resistance to late blight.
