Fans of early tasty tomatoes grown in the sun, and, preferably, unpretentious, often plant the variety "Dubok", also known as "Dubrava", which brings a large number of tomatoes.

Characteristics and description of the variety

The variety was bred in the USSR for cultivation in the open field in Ukraine, Moldova and the south of the Russian Federation and is well known to pensioners. In greenhouses, it can be grown to the north. Fans of year-round fresh tomatoes, obtained on their own, manage to grow this tomato variety even at home on the windowsill.

State Register "Dubok" is recommended for subsidiary and small farms. It is convenient because the height of the bush does not exceed 70 cm, since the variety is determinant. The bush is powerful, not standard. It is recommended to form it in 3-4 stems. The variety does not have a special desire for branching and does not require pinching. The seed producer indicates that the bushes do not require tying, but the opinions of summer residents differ on this point. Unanimously noting the high yield, some confirm that tying is unnecessary, others complain that a garter is necessary.

Perhaps it depends on the number of tomatoes born or the timeliness of the harvest. "Dubrava" is an early ripe tomato variety. The average fruit ripening period is 95 days. The bush bears fruit until late autumn. With a plentiful harvest or an irregular harvest of ripe fruits, the bushes can really not withstand the load. On average, you can get 2 kg of tomatoes from a bush, but with good care and systematic collection of ripe tomatoes, "Dubok" can bring up to 5 kg from one bush. To obtain a bountiful harvest, it is necessary to provide each bush of the Dubrava variety with a living space of 0.3x0.4 m. It is impossible to thicken the plantings.

Tomatoes "Dubok" vary in weight from 50 to 130 g. It is noted that if you plant seedlings under a film, then the fruits are larger. The color of a ripe tomato is bright red. The pulp is dryish, firm. Tomatoes can be plucked brown, they ripen within a few days. Tomatoes are distinguished by their good taste and versatility. They are well suited for preserving and preparing ketchup and vegetable mixes. When fresh, they give a slightly sour taste to vegetable salads.

The fruits have excellent keeping quality and the ability to be stored for up to one and a half months, resistant to cracking. They tolerate transportation well, keeping their presentation. These qualities have made them attractive to small producers.

Features of the

"Dubrava" is a relatively frost-hardy plant. It is also resistant to common tomato diseases. The advantages include the variety's relative indifference to drought and high humidity. While other varieties of tomatoes require almost ideal moisture conditions.

But there is also a fly in the ointment in this barrel of honey: at the time of pollination, the air temperature should not be higher than 25 ° C, otherwise the flowers will not be pollinated.

Advice! When choosing between drought and slightly high humidity, Dubrava prefers humidity.

At elevated temperatures, the harvest will also be impressive, but the size of the tomatoes will be smaller than the size stated by the manufacturer.

An important plus is the ability of "Dubrava" to grow equally well on heavy soils and on sand.

Summer residents noted amicable germination of tomato seeds "Dubok" with a minimum germination rate of 87%, usually 100% germinate.

The undoubted advantage of the variety is the ability to collect seeds for the next season. Tomatoes "Dubok" taste similar to the variety Richie, which is a hybrid of the first generation, and, therefore, does not produce from the seeds of the same variety. Dubrava does not have this drawback.

Why seeds don't germinate

Even in such an unpretentious variety, which is described by the producer "Dubok", the seeds may not germinate. It's not always about the seeds.

There are quite a few serious reasons for seed death:

  • if you took seeds from friends, acquaintances, or private traders in the market, you could buy infected seeds. Unchecked seeds must be disinfected before sowing;
  • an infection may also be present in the seedling soil, even if it was bought in a store (and if you also remember the desire of some store owners to save money by collecting soil in the nearest forest);
  • the presence of toxic substances in the soil;
  • excess of salts in the soil;
  • the soil is too heavy and dense;
  • too deep sowing of seeds;
  • low air temperature. In this case, germination slows down and the seedlings can rot in the soil;
  • excess water. High humidity paired with low temperatures can lead to rotting of seedlings, even with proper sowing;
  • acidic soil. Tomatoes prefer a minimum of neutral soil;
  • seeds stored for a long time at low temperatures "hibernate". They will come out of this state only after 2-3 weeks or will not come out at all.

It is not always the manufacturer's fault that the seeds did not sprout, sometimes other factors prevent the emergence of sprouts.

Reviews of summer residents about the tomato "Dubok"

Surprisingly, they are unanimous in the positive assessment of the variety.

Vanessa Khimova, Aleksin

I prefer to grow my own varieties of vegetables that require a minimum of maintenance. One of these varieties is the Dubrava tomato. It ripens earlier than other tomato varieties. While the others are just starting to blush, this one can already be collected. Tomato "Dubrava" grows well under the foil and in the open field. But if you put it under a film, it will grow and bear fruit sooner. So I plant some of it under the film, some immediately into the open ground, and indulge in the first tomatoes when everything is still green in the neighbors.

With the increase in the selection of seeds, we decided to try to plant "Dubok" from SeDeK. We have water at our dachas on schedule, this tomato attracted the fact that it can withstand drought and hot weather. Quality is very important for Crimea.
They planted. Compared to our usual varieties, I was struck by the number of tomatoes, although due to the heat, some of the leaves and stems simply dried up.


Tomato "Dubrava" has been popular for many years now. Although its fruits are not large, there are many of them and they ripen together. And due to the fact that about forty years ago, breeders did not strive to breed highly productive hybrids that were unable to give seeds, this tomato breaks the run for the summer resident in a circle “shop-seeds-sowing-harvesting-shop”. Seeds of the Dubok variety can be harvested independently.
