The garden season has just ended. Some are still eating their last tomatoes from their garden. It will only take a few months and the time will come to sow new seedlings. Already, many gardeners are thinking about what varieties of tomatoes they will sow next year. Why only varieties? All foreign countries have long switched to tomato hybrids, and they are harvesting large harvests of tomatoes.
What to plant: variety or hybrid
Many gardeners believe that:
- hybrid seeds are expensive;
- the taste of hybrids leaves much to be desired;
- hybrids require careful maintenance.
There is some kind of rational grain in all this, but let's figure it out in order.
On the question of the high cost of seeds. Buying tomato seeds, by the way, are not so cheap, we often take a "pig in a poke", as the re-grading is more and more common. Many gardeners can recall a situation when not strong plants grew from a colorful bag of tomato seeds, but frail sprouts. The time for re-sowing seeds has already been lost, in the season purchased tomato seedlings are expensive, so you have to plant what has grown. And in the end - a greenhouse or greenhouse with a small number of tomatoes that do not correspond to the variety. The efforts that the gardener put into obtaining a significant harvest were wasted.
The bad taste of hybrid tomatoes is also debatable. Yes, old hybrids are more beautiful and transportable than tasty. But breeders bring out new hybrid tomatoes every year, constantly improving their taste. Among their wide variety, it is quite possible to find those that will not disappoint.
On the question of leaving. Of course, varietal tomatoes can "forgive" gardeners for some errors in their care, and hybrids show the maximum yield potential only with a high agricultural background. But for such results it is not a pity and will work hard, especially if there is confidence in a guaranteed yield. And this is possible when the seeds are purchased from a manufacturer with a consistently high reputation, such as the Japanese company Kitano Seeds. Its motto: "New technologies for a new result" is justified by the high quality of the planting material produced and sold. There are many hybrid tomatoes among its seeds, in particular, Aswon f1 tomato seeds, a photo and description of which are presented below.

I have a farm and several hectares of land. We have it fertile, whatever you plant, everything grows, just have time to water. I love growing tomatoes. They sell very well in the market. I used to plant varieties, but then I switched to hybrids - they are more productive. I could not choose a suitable hybrid variety - it looks beautiful and the harvest is good, but it tastes so-so, the varieties will not replace. A neighbor advised me to try the Aswon f1 hybrid. First, I sowed it on my own garden for testing and was pleasantly surprised by the taste and yield. For 2 years now I have been planting it on an industrial scale. I also want to try the yellow-fruited varieties of this company. They say that they are also very tasty. And they are always bought well.

I have a piece of land outside the city. I plant, like everyone else - peppers, eggplants, and my favorite culture - tomatoes. I can go to the garden only on weekends. Sometimes the heat is terrible. You come to the site, and your heart grabs: my tomatoes are sluggish. Well, what a harvest here. And then I went to visit a friend, I look, and her tomatoes are vigorous, they knitted a lot. She suggested to me that it was necessary to plant hybrids and gave a bag, the tomato Aswon f1 is called. I will definitely sow next year.
