Tomato Varieties

  Re: (0...)
I am looking for tasty, but disease resistant, tomato varieties. I like Brandywine, but have had trouble with fungal diseases which occur even when I rotate my tomato plant location. Other varieties I have tried do not have the flavor I remember from childhood. Any recommendations on good varieties? Tips on controlling the fungus?

As far as controlling fungus goes, if you can try to water only the soil, and not the plant leaves, that will help. Use either a soaker hose or else just make sure the sprayer on your hose is down under the plant leaves with a gentle spray aimed at the soil. Avoid overhead watering! Mulching and good plant spacing would also help. Package instructions often say to plant tomatoes 1-1/2 to 2 feet apart, but if you frequently experience fungal problems, then planting them a bit further apart might improve air circulation between the plants, reducing the rate of infection. Look for tomato varieties that are resistant to verticillum wilt (usually denoted with a 'V' after the cultivar name). Lastly, make sure to clean up your garden debris in the fall,and remove all infected plant material by disposing it in the trash, rather than composting it.

As far as finding a tasty tomato, well, that's going to be trial and error. I'll admit that I haven't had great luck growing the larger, beefsteak type tomatoes, and have mostly just been growing a grape-type called Juliet. Its first flush sets very large (for grapes) fruits, usually at least 1 oz. each. After that, they get a little smaller, but I can still slice one or two of them easily to put on a sandwich, or quarter them for salads. Very, very tasty to my mouth too. Good luck in your search!
The great thing about gardening is that you always get a chance to start over!

Tomatoes come in about each shading from white to purple, pink, yellow, orange, mottled, or, truly, striped. (No polka-spots.) Commonly developed assortments incorporate Beefsteak, Big Boy, Brandywine and Boxcar Willie, to touch just on the Bs. Different cultivars incorporate the suggestively named Mortgage Lifter, a treasure assortment well known amid the 30s, and Purple Haze, a substantial cherry tomato got from Cherokee Purple, Brandywine and Black Cherry.

You can get what you are looking for from walmart coupon codes , walmart is the best place for grocery and other item. Like tomato and other vegetables. The best thing about walmart is every thing they have is fresh and upto the standards of the food authority. Plus they never make their customers just buy from them, they allow them some benefits like discounted coupons and alot more.
