Dutch tomato seeds are famous not only for their excellent quality, but also for their beautiful appearance. Tomato is one of the most popular vegetables on our table, so seeds of various varieties are in demand. They begin to choose even in winter, it is then that the season of gardeners begins. Consider some Dutch tomato seeds for greenhouses, let's understand the cultivation features.

Features of Dutch selection seeds

Some gardeners believe that imported tomato varieties are good on their own and produce a rich harvest. This is not entirely correct statement. The fact is that the yield and quality of the seed depends on several factors:

  • from the manufacturing company;
  • from the compliance of growing conditions with those required according to the description;
  • on the quality of care.

Therefore, if you decide to purchase exactly the Dutch varieties, carefully study the information on the package. It is possible that conditions in the region will not be suitable, although the importation of seeds by companies is usually carried out in accordance with these requirements.

When grown in greenhouses

In order for tomatoes to grow and bear fruit indoors, breeders need to work hard. That is why most of the tomatoes presented are hybrids. The most important parameters for the selection of seeds are:

  • disease resistance;
  • ripening rate;
  • special requirements for growing conditions;
  • taste and use of the fruit.

It often happens that the soil in the greenhouse is infected or too moist, and no treatments lead to an improvement in the situation. Pay attention to resistant hybrids in this case.

Important! Hybrids differ from varieties with incredible resistance and vigor.

However, collecting seeds from large fruits for the purpose of their further cultivation does not make any sense, since only varietal tomatoes are capable of producing a harvest in the future.
