Effects of planting date and of variety on the fruiting and yield of greenhouse tomatoes

Acta Horticulturae (58): 301-311

Effects of planting date and of variety on the fruiting and yield of greenhouse tomatoes

The results are given of 2-year trials with Adagio and Exquise F1 tomato cvs, compared with Money d'Or (controls) sown from 3 September to 22 October and planted from 19 October to 19 December. Data are presented on the number of days from sowing to flowering and ripening of the first fruits; plant height 45-65 days after planting; flower and fruit numbers and fruit set; early, cumulative and total yields/m2; and on fruit composition and relative returns/m2.
