Among the salad varieties of tomatoes, those that are called fleshy by lovers stand out, and if they are large and beautiful at the same time, then they are sure to be popular. One of these varieties is the relatively new Tomato Miracle of the Earth, which bears fruit with huge raspberry-colored tomatoes. And since the variety easily tolerates adverse weather conditions, it can increasingly be found in amateur gardens in all corners of our country.
In addition to the Wonder of the Earth tomato, the Wonder of the World variety is known, but these are completely different tomatoes, although in some articles you can find the opinion that these are two names of the same variety. The miracle of the earth bears fruit with really wonderful tomatoes, which, with their size and beautiful colors, inspire optimism and make you want to taste this miracle fruit as soon as possible. Of course, it cannot be called ideal (nothing is perfect), but many gardeners have been chasing the real seeds of this tomato for the second decade already.
The Miracle of the Earth tomato was bred in Novosibirsk at the beginning of this millennium, and in 2004 an application was submitted for its registration in the State Register of Breeding Achievements. Since Vladimir Nikolaevich Dederko, the author of the variety, is listed as an individual entrepreneur, the Miracle of the Earth is considered an amateur variety.
VN Dederko is the creator of several varieties of tomatoes, and all of them have very important common characteristics: as a rule, these varieties are salad, large-fruited and resistant to cold and other whims of the weather.
Soon the application was registered, and the variety was included in the State Register of the Russian Federation in 2006. It is recommended for all climatic regions where, in principle, tomato cultivation is possible. It is officially recommended to plant this tomato in unprotected soil, it is believed that it is intended for personal subsidiary plots. Since the bushes are not very small, the Miracle of the Earth is often planted in greenhouses, especially in regions with harsh climates.
The acquisition of the real seeds of this tomato still remains a big problem. Due to the fact that there are fakes, in the reviews you can often read unflattering opinions about the tomato, which, as it turns out, is simply not a true Miracle of the Earth. Fortunately, this tomato is not a hybrid, so you can get the right seeds from your harvest, which is what amateur gardeners use, passing the baton to neighbors and just good friends.
The Miracle of the Earth tomato belongs to salad varieties, but it can be used in different forms, except, of course, whole-fruit canning: not a single tomato of this variety, except for those clearly not grown to the proper size, will simply fit into a standard glass jar. The variety belongs to the mid-season and very productive: from 1 m2 even in problematic climatic regions, up to 14 kg of fruits are harvested.
The plant, according to the State Register, is determinant, that is, its growth is limited. However, the bush is rather big, sometimes it grows up to one and a half meters, or even more. This is probably why it is often written on the seed bag that the variety is indeterminate. Leaves are of normal size, dark green. The variety is very hardy, easily tolerating both cold and drought, and is well resistant to diseases. In humid summers, cracking is minimal. They can be stored well and can withstand transportation very well.
According to the description given in the State Register, the fruits of the Wonder of the Earth have a rounded shape with medium ribbing. However, this is not always the case, the shape of the fruit is not correct, and on the same bush there may be tomatoes of slightly different shapes, among which truly spherical are rare. They can be flattened and almost heart-shaped, like a Bull's Heart or a Noble, but invariably large: from 400 g and above, sometimes up to a kilogram. As a rule, fruits grow in clusters, up to 8 pieces each.
Even two Wonderland tomatoes growing side by side can differ in shape.
The number of seed nests in fruits is from four, the skin is dense. Ripe tomatoes are pink-raspberry colored. The taste is considered good, but many amateurs say excellent. The pulp is pink in color, sweet, juicy. In addition to fresh consumption, this variety goes well for various sauces, tomato juice and other preparations.
The fruits of the Earth Wonder tomato look beautiful both on the bushes and on a plate, prepared for consumption. It seems that to create such a miracle it was necessary to work very hard.
Tomatoes prepared for dinner haunt eaters, look very appetizing
Tomatoes on bushes, especially when there are a lot of them, raises a natural question about how the bush can withstand such a weight. Actually, without the help of the owner, it can not stand, the garter of these plants is required.
The harvest of tomatoes of this variety can be kept on the branches only with the help of strong supports.
Despite the relative youth of the variety, its most important advantages and disadvantages have long been manifested, and in numerous discussions, experts and amateurs agree that the Miracle of the Earth is a very worthy tomato, and even an inexperienced vegetable grower can grow it without problems in almost any climate. The main advantages of the variety are:
In addition, a positive property is that the seeds harvested from their harvest completely retain varietal characteristics and can be used for planting tomatoes in subsequent seasons.
The relative disadvantages of the variety are:
It is clear that these shortcomings are not critical. Moreover, among the varieties that give such high yields of large-fruited fruits, perhaps, there are none that would do without tying. And the formation requires the absolute majority of varieties and hybrids. A feature of the variety is, rather, that in order to obtain such crops, it does not require any supernatural knowledge and efforts from the gardener.
The fruits of this variety are very reminiscent of the fruits of the Grandee's tomato, but in the latter they are somewhat smaller and smoother, and the overall yield is lower. However, both of these varieties were born in Siberia, both are resistant to the vagaries of the weather. The breeder V. Dederko also owns an excellent variety of Königsberg tomatoes, which bears fruit with tasty large tomatoes of various colors, but smaller and elongated. The well-known Oxheart tomato, which outwardly differs from the Wonder of the Earth, perhaps only in color, ripens a little later. Actually, variety gives rise to choice ...
The miracle of the earth is often compared to the Bull's heart, but their fruits have different colors.
The Miracle of the Earth tomato is very unpretentious and requires the most ordinary care, which is not distinguished by excessive complexity. Like all varieties of tomatoes, in the overwhelming majority of climatic regions it is necessarily grown through seedlings, and this process begins in March: in the central region at the beginning of the second half of the month, in Siberia and the Urals - in its last days. Of course, for greenhouse cultivation, seedlings can be prepared a few weeks earlier, specific dates depend on the quality of the greenhouse and the climate of the region.
Growing seedlings of the Miracle of the Earth tomato is carried out in the same way as in the case of almost any other variety. The seedling preparation technology consists of a number of mandatory activities.
Sometimes the seeds even germinate, but it doesn't make much sense.
When self-preparing the soil, all components must be thoroughly mixed
For a small amount of seeds, any box will do
If there is no southern window sill, illumination of seedlings is required
When picking, the seedlings are buried to the cotyledon leaves
If additional feeding is required, it is most convenient to use specially selected preparations.
A good seedling in two months (and that is how much it is kept in an apartment) grows to a height of about 20–25 cm, while its stem should be strong, short, but thick. Plants are transplanted into open ground when the temperature is set at a depth of 10-15 cm from the ground surface of at least 14 aboutC. This answers in the middle zone around the end of May, and in Siberia this situation occurs somewhat later. If the seedlings outgrow and need to be planted earlier, you need to take care of the device of a film shelter.
Despite the high resistance of the variety to low temperatures, an area closed from cold winds is chosen for the beds. They have been preparing it since the fall, applying the usual doses of fertilizers. Phosphorus is especially fond of tomatoes, therefore, at least a bucket of humus or good compost and about 50 g of superphosphate are added to each square meter. Do not forget about ash, pouring it in reasonable amounts, up to a liter.
In the spring, the bed is dug shallowly, and before planting the seedlings, small holes are made, where the plants are planted, deepening to the very cotyledonous leaves. Despite the determinancy of the variety, the Miracle of the Earth is planted loosely, trying to place no more than three bushes per square meter. Simultaneously with planting, strong stakes are driven in next to the plants for the subsequent garter of the plants, which is carried out as the bushes grow. Usually they try to plant seedlings in the evening, even better - in cloudy weather.
Seedlings are watered a few hours before planting so that the bushes can be removed from the containers along with an earthen clod, minimally injuring the roots. After planting in the holes, the seedlings are well watered with warm water (no colder than 25 aboutC) and mulch the ground with any suitable bulk material.
If the seedlings are transferred to a bed with a clod of earth, they almost do not get sick.
Caring for the Miracle of the Earth tomato is very simple. It consists of watering, loosening the soil, weed control and several top dressing. In addition, timely formation of a bush and tying to stakes is required. They usually water it in the evening so as not to worry about the temperature of the water: the sun heats it up during the day. Watered in moderation, but you must try not to allow the soil to dry out too much. The variety tolerates drought normally, but there is no need to create unnecessary stress on the plants.
It is better to water at the root, trying not to wet the leaves unnecessarily. Depending on the current weather, watering may be required twice a week, but it is usually sufficient to water only on weekends. Excess water lowers the sugar content of the fruit, which must also be taken into account when growing this tomato.
2-3 weeks after planting in the garden, the plants are fed for the first time. Then, every two weeks, root feeding is repeated, alternating mineral and organic fertilizers. If at first for the growth of the bush and flowering, nitrogen fertilizers are required to a greater extent, then as the fruits are poured, nitrogen is removed, leaving potassium and phosphorus.
The composition of solutions for dressing should be compiled based on the instructions for fertilizers, and in the case of using organic matter, the recipes are universal (mullein with water 1:10, and bird droppings - 10 times more diluted). To increase the number of flowers, boric fertilizers are often used, spraying the bushes in the evenings with a solution of a rather simple composition: 1 g of boric acid per bucket of water.
Fortunately, Miracle Earth is highly resistant to disease. This variety rarely suffers even from late blight, so ordinary summer residents, as a rule, do not even perform preventive treatments.
Tomato bushes The wonder of the earth must be formed. This variety is grown in two stems. The first thing to do after the bush grows well is to remove all vegetation at a height of up to 30 cm from the ground. Then choose the most powerful stepson (and usually the lowest one) and save it as the second stem. The rest of the stepsons systematically break out.
Timely breaking out of stepchildren significantly saves the strength of the bush
They do stepchild weekly, trying to remove the stepchildren as they reach a length of 5–8 cm. At the same time, a stump of about 1 cm is left, which prevents the resumption of the formation of the stepson in this place. Stepping stops closer to August. Be sure to tie up the stems with a soft rope to the stakes several times per season, using the eight method. The place for tying is chosen depending on the crowding of the fruit.
The fruits are harvested in dry weather, as they ripen. It is worth knowing that slightly brown tomatoes of the Miracle of the Earth variety ripen perfectly in the room, after which they are stored for quite a long time. This property is widely used at the end of summer, when the number of fruits on the bushes is still large, and the sun and the heat for their ripening becomes less and less.
Wonder of the Earth - a wonderful variety of tomatoes with large, beautiful fruits that can withstand adverse weather conditions. Not having a delicious taste, the variety takes on its ease of cultivation, yield and versatility of fruit use. This is a variety grown throughout our country and receiving mostly positive reviews.
