General information

Tomato Cornabel F1 - indeterminate variety with a peculiar shape of the fruit


Growing tomatoes of this variety does not require any special procedures. Everything is done the same way as when planting any other varieties. The exception is that the bushes must be formed. Tomatoes are grown in greenhouses and open ground. Seeds on seedlings are planted in late March, early April. The soil intended for planting seeds can be further fertilized. Having introduced organic fertilizers and mineral additives:

Overabundance of potassium for this variety is destructive. A high content of potassium leads to an increase in the weight of the fruit, the plant can not hold them. He also prevents the absorption of calcium. When a full leaf is formed on a plant, they dive. Before planting you can feed the seedlings. It is recommended to harden the seedlings, take it to the balcony in 2-3 weeks, or just outside. Then, based on the weather conditions of the region, the tomatoes are planted in the ground. It is desirable that the seedlings have not yet bloomed. So it is easier to take root and grow faster.

Form the "Cornabel" in one barrel. Be sure to tie to the support. Sometimes the plant produces too many fruits, and a shrub does not form. As a result, the tomato will suffer, then human intervention is necessary. You can increase the percentage of moisture, it will give the bush the power to grow green mass. This is done through short, but short waterings. Another way to help the plant to leave the side shoots, forming a plant not in one, but in 2-3 stems.

Positive and negative aspects of the form

Any variety is characterized from two sides. Sort «Cornabel f1» not an exception.

  • Versatility.
  • Resistance to the vagaries of nature.
  • High yield.
  • Excellent presentation.
  • Resistance to diseases.
  • The shape of the fruit is always identical.

  • High seed value.
  • The complexity of the formation of the bush.
  • The collected seeds do not retain those qualities that were inherent in the fruits of the parent plant.

Harvest volume and ways to increase it

Hybrid high-yielding. But if you want to get the maximum yield, you should adhere to the following rules:

  1. Shrubs to plant often, but to form strictly in one trunk. This will increase the number and size of the fruit.
  2. Horizontal landing. Grow new stepchildren with their root system. They are formed into an independent plant and yield.
  3. You can use biostimulants. They are not harmful to humans, and the harvest can increase well.

Opinions of summer residents regarding the variety “Cornabel f1”

Many gardeners get more useful and accurate information from the Internet. Or rather, reading the available reviews. Real people express their own opinions. Advise or scold a new variety. Make recommendations for care or growing

  1. Sergei. Growing tomatoes 3 years, no complaints. Everything is like and satisfied.
  2. Nika. The whole family loves tomatoes of this variety. Use them both fresh and in marinades. The structure of the fetus, and its density. The only disadvantage is the high price for seeds.
  3. Tasha. Grows tomatoes in a small area, so the selection of varieties is very tough. Variety "Cornabel" one of the favorites. Grown fruit sometimes reaches 450 grams. With proper farming practices. He appreciates him for high yield and taste. More prefer to use fresh. No added sour cream, butter and mayonnaise. Fruits until late autumn.
  4. Hope. Calls a hybrid of the best among the pepper varieties. Values ​​for taste and long shelf life.

Growing a hybrid on the site gives a 100% guarantee of a great harvest. It is only necessary to grow and monitor the plant properly. In time making the necessary agrotechnical work. And the result is not long in coming.

Cornabel variety description

Variety Cornabel hit the Russian market relatively recently and immediately came to taste summer residents. It belongs to mid-season hybrids. Fruits have time to be filled with solar heat and light, which favorably affects its taste. Tomato pulp unusually juicy and fleshy, has a sweetish taste.

Tomato Cornabel F1 is an indeterminate variety. Associated with this is the incessant growth of the bush throughout the season, which is best formed into a single trunk. He becomes tall and requires a mandatory garter to a strong support.

Fruits form in the bushes in the form of brushes of 4-7 pieces. The shape of the tomato is pepper-shaped, reaches a length of 15 cm, at the end there is a small growth. The average weight is 200 grams, the maximum fruit can gain weight up to 0.5 kg.

Use the fruits of tomatoes Cornabel original form can be for canning. Tomatoes are compact, so are well suited for rolling in banks. Their dense skin does not crack, and after extraction from the marinade they always look appetizing. Also used tomatoes of this variety and for the preparation of salads. But the best application for them is fresh consumption, directly from the garden. Cornabel is also suitable for drying. In this form, more useful substances are preserved in tomato than during canning.

Origin of the variety

The variety of tomatoes Cornabel was created by breeders in France. It is a hybrid of the tomato horn of the andes (Cornue des Andes). The seeds of this variety are delivered to Russia by the French company Vilmorin (Vilmorin), which is engaged in the production of hybrid varieties of not only tomatoes, but also radishes, carrots, cucumbers, and beets.

Planting and watering

To plant seeds for seedlings should be a couple of months before its placement in the ground. For residents of the middle zone - this is the middle of March. At earlier periods, the seedlings can outgrow, which also does not have a very positive effect on the subsequent formation of the fruit. The seedling should not start its flowering before it moves to the ground.

After two leaflets have appeared, a dive should be carried out. More space for each bush will help later to get high yields.

Before planting in the ground is required to conduct a little hardening of young shoots. This is done by transferring the seedlings first for a short time to the balcony or to the open window at night, and just before planting you can leave shoots all night on the open balcony.

Description of tomatoes Cornabel F1, reviews, photos

Mid-season (60 days from planting seedlings to ripening), indeterminate, wrist tomato hybrid from Vilmorin. Recommended for greenhouses and open ground with a mandatory garter to the support.

The bush is powerful, with a good root system. The best result was obtained when forming a plant in 1 trunk. Fruits are collected in brushes (up to 7 fruits).

Fruit Characteristic

Fruits of elongated shape (up to 15 cm), dense, in the stage of maturity are red, weighing about 200 grams, juicy, sweet, tasty. These tomatoes are great for both fresh consumption and canning.

Hybrid advantages: excellent fruit stitchiness under adverse conditions, high transportability, resistance to the main diseases of tomato. Great for growing high quality products.

If you grew Cornabel F1 tomatoes, please write if you liked them. What was the yield and taste of the fruit? Will you grow them again? If possible, attach a photo of the entire bush or individual fruits grown by you. Thank!

Your additions to the description will help many gardeners evaluate this hybrid more objectively and decide whether to plant it or not.

Unusual vegetable

A distinctive feature of this tomato is its pepper form. At first glance, it is difficult to determine: this is a tomato or red pepper. Cornabel f1 tomato has recently arrived in Russia and has not yet gained wide popularity.

The main reason is the hybridity of the variety, which is why it is impossible to grow a tomato from the seeds of last year's crop. It is necessary every year to buy new material, which is very expensive, since the price of imported seeds is higher than those produced in Russia.

Not all gardeners are willing to pay for seeds annually, but those who appreciate unusual varieties of tomatoes recommend Cornabel.

Vegetable is not intended for cultivation in cold regions. In temperate climates, it is better to plant this variety in the greenhouse, in the open field the plant will be comfortable in southern latitudes. Cornabel tomatoes belong to mid-season varieties: 120 days pass from sowing to ripening. The plant is not limited in growth, so it requires constant care: the formation of the bush and the garter to the support.

The yield of a variety depends on several factors:

  1. Way of landing. The best choice is a horizontal landing, at which the formation and development of additional processes is possible.
  2. The formation of the bush. It is not necessary to plant several plants in 1 well.
  3. The distance between the bushes. If the planting is thick, then there will be more yield from 1 m².
  4. Top dressing by biostimulants. When choosing a top dressing, the main criterion should be the safety of the substance for a person.

If you properly care and apply small tricks, you can collect a good harvest, even under adverse weather conditions.

The fruits ripen in July-August, depending on the region. In 1 brush forms from 4 to 7 tomatoes. The average weight of the fruit - 0.2 kg, maximum - 0.5 kg. In 1 bush, all tomatoes are the same size. The tomato is sweet, meaty and very dense. Due to the density of the fruit, the crop is well stored and easily transported over long distances.

One of the main advantages of the hybrid variety is resistance to parasites and diseases. So, Cornabel is not susceptible to fusarium, verticillus and tomato mosaic.

Sowing and planting seedlings

Sowing seedlings produced no earlier than 60 days before planting in the soil, usually in March, so that the tomato does not outgrow. Planting need to seedlings before the flowers appear, otherwise the plant may not settle down or will develop poorly.

The grade is unpretentious to soil - special preparation of the soil is not required. However, it is recommended to fertilize the land before sowing. Use fertilizers containing phosphorus, potassium and nitrogen. Organic matter, humus or peat, will do, but as an addition. It is possible to sow in boxes, but after the appearance of the leaves, the seedlings are spiked and transplanted in separate containers.

Tomatoes can be planted at a permanent place when the earth warms to + 15 ° С, the depth of the holes is 10 cm. Bushes are formed from 1 stem. The distance between the bushes and rows may be different. When planting sprouts close to each other, additional stading will be required, which increases the risk of contracting diseases. But this method gives greater yield. If you leave enough space between the bushes, additional intervention is not required, which facilitates the process of caring for the plant.

Watering should be frequent, but not abundant. Top dressing is injected as necessary. Use nitrogen to improve the growth of bushes, phosphorus to strengthen the roots and potassium, which ensures the growth of fruits. It is important not to overdo it with fertilizers, especially those containing potassium.

Characteristic variety

Hybrid refers to generative gene indeterminate tomatoes. The plant does not stop growing until the end of the growing season, regularly tying new brushes.

Generative type of development of tomato Cornabel eliminates the "fattening" of the bush when grown in greenhouses on well-fertilized soils. It forms a powerful root system, has an open habit, due to which it is well ventilated and poorly exposed to the most common diseases of tomatoes.

Advantages and disadvantages

The variety is middle-ripening, in a hand up to 7 fruits with an average weight of 200 g. The fruits of the hybrid Cornabel are red, leveled, of a pepper-shaped form, up to 15 cm in length. The elongated shape, the same size and high density of ripe tomatoes are convenient for whole-canning. Tomatoes differ juicy pulp and excellent sweet taste.

Cornabel is grown through seedlings, both in greenhouses and in the open field with mandatory garter and bush formation.

  • amicably tying the fruit under adverse conditions,
  • resistant to major diseases and does not suffer from pests
  • excellent sweet taste
  • fruits have high transportability, long storage.

The lack of tomato Cornabel vegetable growers consider the high price of seeds, and the inability to collect them from a hybrid.

Features agrotechnology in the seedling period

Tomato F1 Cornabel is grown through seedlings. Before sowing, the seeds are treated with a pink solution of potassium permanganate for 15–20 minutes, washed well, immersed for 20 minutes in diluted Fitosporin and soaked in the Epin, Zircon or Energen biopreparations for several hours. Soil for seedlings is bought in the store or prepared independently from equal parts of peat, compost, sand and garden soil. The earth mixture is disinfected by freezing, followed by heating to 100 ° C in the oven.

Spill potassium permanganate is not recommended, as it strongly acidifies the soil.

Prepared seeds are sown in boxes to a depth of 1 cm and kept at a temperature of 25–28 ° C until germination. Hatching seedlings need bright light and low temperature. Ideal for them would be 20–22 ° C during the day and 16–18 ° C at night. In such conditions, the seedlings are not drawn out.

When a second true leaf appears, the seedlings swoop - pinch the spine and seat on separate containers.

Caring for Cornabel tomatoes consists of moderate watering with settled water, 2-3 fertilizers with complex fertilizers with a predominance of nitrogen and bleaching if necessary. 2-3 weeks before planting in open ground, seedlings need to be hardened - carried to a balcony or loggia at an air temperature of at least 10 ° C. Begin tempering at half an hour, and at the end of the seedling period, when warm weather sets in, it is left outdoors for the whole day, entering the room only on cold nights.

Scheme of planting and the subtleties of growing indoors

After the end of return frosts seedlings are planted in the greenhouse. To reduce the stress of tomatoes, before planting boxes with seedlings, it is desirable to hold them in the greenhouse for several days, covering the night from the cold weather and at midday from the bright sun.

The density of planting tomato Cornabel depends on the method of formation of the bush. When forming in one stem, planting density is 4 seedlings per square meter, in two stems - no more than 3.

Planting pits plentifully shed with warm water with a solution of "Fitosporina", then tomatoes are planted, bury them in cotyledon leaves. After planting, the plants are not watered for a week or more until there are clear signs of a lack of water. This agrotechnical technique makes saplings build up the roots going deep. In the future, this makes it easier for tomatoes to tolerate the lack of watering.

About a month after planting the seedlings to a permanent place, it is fed with liquid organic fertilizer with the addition of ash. Until the end of the growing season, tomatoes are fertilized several times, in which phosphorus and potassium prevail. If tomatoes are poorly tied, which is usually in extreme heat, spray bushes with complex fertilizer with boron or boric acid, which is diluted in proportion to 1 gram per 1 liter of water.

Features of cultivation in the open ground

Plants are planted in open ground 1-2 weeks later than in greenhouses. Before the onset of steady warm weather, the beds with tomatoes are covered for the night. It should be remembered that tomatoes in the open ground are more susceptible to fungal diseases and carry out appropriate preventive measures.

At the end of August, tomato bushes are pinched to stop growth and allow ripened fruit to ripen.

To get a big harvest, tomatoes are harvested in the stage of technical ripeness and ripen in boxes. This saves the power of the tomatoes Cornabel for tying new brushes.

Shrub formation and disease prevention

Bush Cornabel form in one or two stems, the other stepchildren must be removed. For the second stem, the stepson is left growing in front of the first flower brush. Both stalks are tied to a support. Promptly remove diseased or yellowed leaves.

After collecting the fruits on the brush, remove the leaves that grow below. This technique allows you to damage the thickened crown and prevent fungal diseases.

Kornabel is rather resistant to phytophthora, but in rainy summer preventive spraying with biological preparations “Alirin-B” and “Fitosporin” are necessary. If the disease has developed, the diseased specimens are removed and the rest are treated with copper-containing agents.

Reviews of Tomate Cornabel F1

It is always interesting and informative to get acquainted with the opinions of people who have already grown this hybrid, have their own opinion and give advice on cultivation and application.

Hope, Kaluga. He considers Cornabel to be the best among pepper tomatoes and appreciates excellent taste and good keeping quality.

Natasha, Volgograd. I am sure that with the observance of agrotechnics, the tomato brings a high yield, bears fruits until frost, it is well preserved. Prefers to use it fresh.

Nick, Kursk. He loves variety for simplicity and yield. Вся семья употребляет его как в свежем виде, так и в маринадах. В консервированных помидорах сохраняется их структура и плотность. Недостатком томата Корнабель считает высокую цену на семена.

Description and characteristics

Plant indeterminate (generative type) mid-season. The height of the bushes to the end of the season reaches 160-170 cm. From shoots to the beginning of fruiting, it takes from 110 to 120 days. Bushes powerful, with a developed root system. Their structure contributes to uniform illumination of foliage. Hybrid wrist. Up to 7 tomatoes can be formed on each flower brush. This tomato can be grown both in open ground and in greenhouses.

Fruits are pepper-shaped, outwardly they strongly resemble Bulgarian peppers. Tie well even in adverse weather conditions. Length - up to 15 cm. Mass - from 150 to 220 g (individual specimens up to 450 g). Color red. The flesh is thick and juicy. The taste is sweet. According to the content of dry substances, Cornabel F1 is one of the leaders among all known varieties and hybrids. Crop tolerates transportation

The plant practically does not get sick, as it is characterized by innate resistance to almost all characteristic diseases of tomatoes, including verticillous and fusarium wilt, tobacco mosaic virus.

Harvest is suitable for salads, fresh consumption and canning.

Cultivation and care

Purchased seeds have already been treated with Thiram fungicide, therefore, it is not necessary to soak them in a solution of potassium permanganate. Landing perform in mid-March. Soil mixture should be loose and nutritious.

In phase 1-2 of these leaves you need to perform a pick of young plants in separate cups. Before this procedure, seedlings in the common seedling container must be watered properly.

Also an important step in the cultivation of seedlings is its hardening. Carrying out plants in the open air should begin 2 weeks before the planned landing.

At the age of 50-55 days, the grown bushes are ready for transfer to the greenhouse or open ground. By this time, the temperature of the earth at 10 cm depth should be at + 15 ... + 16 C.

Planting scheme - no more than 3 plants per 1 m2. Shrubs should be formed in 1 trunk. Garter to support perform a few days after transplantation, when the seedlings adapt to the new location.

  • Abundant watering with warm settled water at the root with a frequency of 1-2 times a week in the morning or evening hours with mandatory ventilation of the greenhouse.
  • Fertilizing fertilizers (10 days after planting, use urea, an extract of mullein or bird droppings, use potash-phosphate fertilizers during flowering and fruiting).
  • Loosening and weeding should be done once a week.

Productivity remains good even in adverse seasons. The period of fruiting in greenhouses lasts until mid-September.

Appearance and description of the variety

“Cornabel” is suitable for lovers of indeterminant tomatoes, this is a variety of hybrid.

For those who do not know, we will explain that such tomatoes do not cease to grow during the whole season, respectively, they grow quite high and need to form a bush and a mandatory garter.

But the fruits of such a powerful, possessing a developed root system of the bush can be collected much more.

The advantages and disadvantages of the variety

Among the many advantages of the hybrid should be highlighted:

  • high yield even under adverse environmental conditions
  • unusual appearance and the same regular shape of tomatoes,
  • excellent taste of fruits,
  • a long period of fruiting, which distinguishes this tomato from the determinant varieties,
  • resistance to major diseases and pests, in particular, to the mosaic of tomatoes, fusarium wilt, verticillous wilt,
  • good transportability and keeping quality of fruits.

As disadvantages, it is worth mentioning a rather complicated agricultural technique. Like any indeterminate tomato, Dulce needs a good support and requires serious efforts to properly form a bush, and the productivity of the variety directly depends on it.

In addition, they also note the relatively high cost of seeds of this hybrid, which can also be attributed to the "minuses".

As it is known, the mark “F1” in the name of the variety indicates that this is the first, most valuable generation of a hybrid, and such plants are, so to speak, “disposable”: there is no point in collecting seeds from such tomatoes for subsequent planting, because they do not retain the valuable characteristics of the parent variety.


The agrotechnical cultivation of the hybrid "Cornabel F1" is determined by its affiliation with indeterminate tomatoes.

This type of tomato can be grown both in open ground and in greenhouses. Seeds, as already mentioned, each time must be purchased in specialized stores.

Planting seeds on seedlings begins a maximum of two months before the planned planting in open ground. For residents of the middle zone, for example, you can be puzzled by this process in mid-March.

Indeterminate tomatoes begin to sow for a week or two earlier than standard ones, but overgrown seedlings are always not very good (it is better to plant seedlings in open ground before they begin to bloom).

If tomatoes are intended for cultivation in the greenhouse, it is possible to begin to prepare seedling much earlier.

In advance of the soil mixture prepared for sowing, the main mineral additives, potassium, phosphorus, nitrogen, as well as organic fertilizer (peat, humus, compost) should be introduced. When the seedlings have formed 1-2 true leaves, picks are carried out - transplanted into separate cups. The presence of space at the stage of formation of seedlings is the key to the yield of the bush in the future!

When the earth warms up to 15 degrees to the depth of the hole (10 cm), seedlings can be planted to a permanent place, pre-hardened by moving cups of seedlings to a balcony or under an open window, first for a short time, and a few days before disembarking - for the whole night .

Usually this term comes in May, but certain amendments are possible for different climatic zones. In greenhouses, conditions suitable for transplantation are created about a month and a half earlier.

After planting the bush, painstaking work on its formation begins, and even before that you need to worry about creating reliable supports for tall tomatoes. It should also be borne in mind that the constant pruning and pinching inevitably lead to an increase in the risk of hitting the hive with various infections that penetrate "open wounds."

For this reason, if there is enough space on the site, many gardeners prefer to plant bushes less crowded, but allow them to grow without any human intervention.

Such a method, as will be said below, yields a somewhat smaller crop, but it requires minimal effort and is therefore quite suitable for non-commercial cultivation.

Among the features of tomato cultivation "Dulce" it is also worth mentioning the mandatory feeding:

  • nitrogen to increase green mass
  • ] potassium to accelerate the development of fruits
  • phosphorus to strengthen the root system.

Conditions for maximum fructification

Yield increase is an intensive way of agricultural development. There are many methods to achieve maximum yields by mobilizing the internal reserves of the plant itself and creating the most favorable conditions for it.

In this case, the increase in quantity does not go to the detriment of quality, that is, this is exactly what we need.

If we talk about the hybrid "Dulce", its productivity can be increased by about a third only through thickened planting and proper formation of the bush in one trunk.

A horizontal planting of the seedlings is also used, then the trunk sprinkled with earth begins to form its own root system and independent stepchildren, thus, the yield of one bush increases several times.

Another method is the introduction of potash fertilizers, they contribute to more rapid formation of fruits. But here you need to make some reservation. The fact is that according to the type of development, tomatoes (like other plants) are divided into vegetative and generative. At the same time, the “imbalance”, both in one and in the other direction, threatens to decrease the maximum possible yield.

At the same time, there are certain agrotechnical methods that allow to rectify the situation, however, they are different for different types of development.

It would seem that this is good, because from the tomatoes we first of all expect a large number of fruits, and not an increase in green mass, which suggests just the vegetative type.

However, if the generative qualities begin to prevail, the following happens: the plant directs all the vital forces to the development of fruits, while the growth of the bush and strengthening of the root system begin to slow down.

As a result, a weakened plant is simply not able to withstand the numerous fruits filled with juice, its branches become thinner, and the flowers continue to be laid, and there is simply no chance for the new tomatoes to mature. If there is too strong generative development of a tomato, to increase its fruiting it is necessary to take measures aimed at stimulating the vegetative growth direction.

To do this, there are the following agrotechnical tricks:

    The range between the air temperature during the day and at night should be artificially increased, slightly heating the air in the greenhouse at night.

If the most favorable night temperature in order for the tomatoes to gain mass is 15-16 degrees Celsius, it is enough to raise it literally a couple of degrees, and the bush will grow. Increased shoot growth can also be achieved by increasing the humidity of the air and creating an additional greenhouse effect by reducing ventilation.

In this case, the bushes begin to evaporate less moisture, and accordingly, it is better to grow. True, it is very important to be careful here, because high humidity is a favorable environment for the development of various pathogenic fungi that can cause the crop much more harm than excessive generative growth.

  • Vegetative development is stimulated by frequent, but short-term watering: the bush grows faster in wet soil.
  • You can also try to add an additional dose of nitrogen fertilizer to the soil and completely stop feeding with carbon dioxide (if any) [img
  • When forming a bush, additional shoots are left, thus increasing green mass and foliage.
  • Regulation of the number of inflorescences is another way to solve the problem, but in this case, we do not so much increase vegetative growth as reduce generative growth.

    Best of all, without waiting for the beginning of flowering, to remove the weakest bud, in your opinion, because too many fruits of the bush will not be able to withstand anyway.

    By the way, such a technique simultaneously stimulates the growth of new shoots and leaves, on which a new, but already strong ovary is formed on the indeterminate tomato.

  • To the tops of the tomatoes are not twisted, they are recommended to "fasten" to the supports with the help of special clips.
  • Finally, it is also possible to increase vegetative growth with the help of dimming: the more light, the more ovaries.

    In greenhouse conditions, special curtains or screens are often used to stimulate growth; it is best to install them from the hottest south side and close not the entire wall, but only its lower part, say, at the level of two meters.

    Through the use of such techniques, it is possible to achieve maximum yield of indeterminant tomato varieties “Cornabel” in good faith, without resorting to the use of chemical stimulants.

    However, not all drugs that stimulate fruiting are harmful to the environment and the health of those who will enjoy a bountiful harvest.

    Modern science offers many so-called biostimulants, allowing to achieve improved yields at times, while the quality and ecological purity of the fruit from such feeding will not suffer. Among these drugs to increase the productivity of tomatoes can be called "Bud", "Ovary", "Bioglobin", etc. Use them according to the instructions, and tomatoes will please you with maximum yield without any "chemistry".

    Fruit use

    Traditionally, all elongated tomatoes are primarily grown for preservation entirely.

    Firstly, it is very convenient, because neat and compact fruits fit perfectly into any container for twists, easily passing through the neck, and just as conveniently then removed, secondly, these blanks look extremely appetizing.

    Nevertheless, the fruits of this hybrid, due to its good taste, are well suited for salads, and it is very good to eat such a tomato entirely from the garden, as always, it is very fragrant and tasty. Another traditional way of using tomatoes in the form of "cream" is drying or drying. Sun-dried tomatoes are a real delicacy and are very expensive, while at home it is even easier to make such a preparation than to preserve a bottle of tomatoes with salt, herbs and vinegar.

    Summing up, let's say that the tomato "Cornabel" deserves the highest characteristic.

    Be sure to plant on your site a few bushes of this French hybrid, and this will be enough to enjoy plenty of sweet, pepper-like tomatoes with the whole family during the summer and, moreover, provide yourself with a good supply of delicious vitamin snacks for the winter!
