An indeterminate variety with a high yield-potential
• Uniform truss
• Keeps size to the top
• Good leaf cover
• Attractive, refined
• TYLCV, TSWV & Fol: 1-3
An indeterminate round type tomato hybrid suited to greenhouse or under protection production for the fresh market.
Medium maturing variety. In Summer plantings the first fruit will mature in 80 - 85 days after transplanting. The date of harvesting may vary by as much as 10 days between early and late season plantings. This needs to be taken into consideration when planning planting schedules under different growing conditions.
RENKA is a strong, vigorous and productive plant with an open growth habit.
RENKA has a very high quality, oblate to deep oblate fruit with an average mass of 160 - 180g and with thick walls. RENKA is a jointed variety with long shelf life. The fruit are very uniform and a high percent-age of first grade could be expected.
RENKA is well suited for greenhouse production as a trellised type. Although highly recommended to be pruned.
For optimal results, plants should be pruned to 2 stems in greenhouse production. Pruning will lead to earlier setting and better fruit uniformity. Attention should be given as not to prune too severely during summer as foliage might be reduced leading to possible sun burn damage.
Under protection: the plants could either be trained to a single stem on a supporting string and then layered down, or pruned to two stems and stopped at the desired height. The planting density should be 2 - 3 plants / stems per m².
HR: Verticillium Wilt (Va, Vd), Fusarium Wilt (Fol 1, 2, 3), Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV).
IR: Root-knot Nematodes (Ma, Mi,Mj), Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV), Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus (TYLCV).
Features & Benefits:
RENKA has a very high yield potential and constantly achieved between 6 - 8 yields per plant in trials conducted during 4 consecutive seasons. The variety stood out as the plant with the best leaf structure and longevity. It showed an open growth habit with vigour and balance. The variety had very high quality fruit with the ability to set uniform size to the top of the plant. RENKA has the potential to accelerate even further in its last harvest cycles, to out yield any standard to the end.
