Venera a new cultivar tomato for production

Venera a new cultivar tomato for production

Rasteniev"dni Nauki 25(1): 77-80

The tomato cultivar Venera intended for production of whole unpeeled canned tomatoes was developed in 1979-1985 as a result of intercultivar hybridization and stabilizing individual selection. It is a mid-early to early cultivar, high yielding of determinate habit, with sufficient leafage, resistant to tobacco mosaic virus. The fruits are ovally-elongated, with intensely red, smooth surface, without green shoulder, two-loculed, firm, with thick dense pericarp, mean weight 55-60 g, with high biological value and fine flavour. They can be preserved well on the plant, without losing their chemico-technological properties and are suitable for a single harvest and bulk transportation. Cv. Venera surpasses the standards Ventura and UC-82A in yield by 12-18% and in the main chemico-technological and biological criteria to the cans of whole peeled or unpeeled tomatoes. Cv. Venera is approved by the State Cultivar Commission and its extension in tomato production will contribute to the improvement of tomato canning and to the profitableness of tomato production.
