History of tomato varieties Sevryuga
It is difficult to find official data on this variety: who brought, in what year, varietal characteristics. Sevrugi is not in the State Register of breeding achievements. Seeds are sold under the brands: "Seeds of Altai" and "SibSad." The latter company is famous for its regraders, as well as the ability to sell absolutely identical plants under different names. It happened with Sevruga. The gardeners, who bought both the seeds of Pudovik and Sevryuga, discovered during cultivation that these tomatoes are identical. Moreover, on packages with seeds Pudovik in brackets sign - Sevruga.
Many gardeners have long and to no avail are puzzled with the question: why does one tomato have two names?
However, the tomato Pudovik is listed in the State Register of breeding achievements. Its authors are Novosibirsk entrepreneurs and breeders: V.N. Dederko and O.V. Postnikova. According to the description, Pudovik, officially recognized, is indeterminate, that is, the main stem is not mouthed, it grows upwards, as long as the weather permits it. And the company "SibSad" calls its Pudovik and Sevrugu - determinant, as such they turn out at cultivation.
It turns out that Sevryuga has no relation to Pudovik from the State Register and, possibly, is sold by SibSad under various names. Nevertheless, this variety is loved by many gardeners who grow it for several years. Fortunately, this is not a hybrid, you can collect your seeds and not go for re-pricing. The idea of a tomato is easy to compile from the words of members of the forum and video blogger reviews, as well as from the Seeds of Altai website; there is no Pudovik’s assortment and confusion associated with it.
It is for certain known that Sevryuga is a variety of Siberian selection, suitable for cultivation in the northern regions. It appeared about ten years ago and won the sympathy of gardeners with one unique feature - to tie large and tasty fruits on low-growing bushes. The first brushes are formed not somewhere at a height of half a meter, but near the ground itself.
Description of tomato Sevryuga
The variety shows itself well both in greenhouses and in the open field in conditions of a short summer. In terms of ripening, it is a mid-season tomato, that is, the first fruits are sown about 100–110 days after emergence of the seedlings. The height of the bush under the most favorable conditions is 1.5–1.8 m, and in open ground in Siberia it is less than 1 m.
Not once and not once did a tomato grower call the Stevruga shrub frail: the stem is thin, branching heavily. However, rather massive fruits grow on weak branches, and the plant falls to the ground under their weight.
The bush at Sevryuga is weak, falls on the ground under the weight of its own fruits
Tomatoes are heart-shaped, ribbed, ripe stained in red and crimson color. Varietal feature - on the surface of ripe fruits there are spots of yellow or orange color.

The taste is very good, the flesh is sweet, fleshy, with a tomato flavor. Some gardeners call Sevryuga the most delicious among all the varieties available on their site.

Reviews of Tomat Sevryuga
Tomato Pudovik (Sevryuga) Poludut. In the greenhouse height up to 1.7 m. The bush itself is “frail”. Fruits are heart-shaped, weighing up to 600g. Delicious. I first gave the entire crop on the main trunks, and then began to tie fruit on the stepsons. Harvest about 5kg. from the bush.
Pudovika yesterday at the All-Russia Exhibition Center did not find, but Sevruga, please. About the pictures on the packages already written many times. I will add that on Pudovik and Sevryuga pictures are different. I compare the text. On “Sevryuga” the color of fruits is bright red, on Pudovik - raspberry-red. The rest of the text is one to one. But the funny thing or the sad thing is this. In the State Register it is written that Pudovik is Indeterminant, on packages it is determinant. The color of the fruit in the registry - crimson. So draw conclusions, gentlemen.
I bought almost a month ago Pudovik at VVC. On the cover is written “Pudovik”, on the reverse side, where the description: Tomato Pudovik (Sevryuga) is super-large and super-tasty! New! written that determinant and raspberry red. Then what kind of tomato is Pudovik or Sevruga?
Sevruga is unpretentious, I sow on seedlings in the middle of March, I plant it in the ground around May 25, I cover it with spanbond until June 10. If it turns out to be a fruitful year, I sell the surplus to my friends at the store price, fly away! Usually they manage to fill themselves with 4 clusters on a branch (form into 2 trunks), but I don’t allow them to ripen on the bush, I take them off when they start to grow, we live in Siberia! I did not suffer from phytophtora; I preventively sprinkle all my tomatoes with nettles, whey, and garlic, of course, of course. In the greenhouse, the harvest would have been better, but at the same time, there is much more trouble.
Stellate sturgeon. SibSad, half coming (170 cm), pink, 350–600 g, 4–5 pcs., Yields are average, but they grew for the first year, there were shortcomings in growing seedlings, so it is difficult to judge for now. I love for: the most delicious and sweet I have today, very pleasant flesh and a real tomato flavor, did not crack.
In 2009, I planted both Mazarin and Sevrugu and Pudovik all on the same bed in the greenhouse. Almost the same, but Mazarin had bushes “prettier” and there was no notorious yellow spot on the fruit (it came across to others) and it seems to me that they were even more tender. My choice of them "fell" in favor of Mazarin.
Sevruga is a large-fruited variety, but determinant. Short I don’t know how to apply it in a greenhouse - I don’t have a greenhouse.
This season, due to the weather, Sevruga has raised higher than usual, but the ovary is plentiful. So Sevryuzhka not let you down! I hope ...)))
Sevrugu can be called a problem-free tomato with large and incredibly tasty fruits for Siberia. When growing, consider the fragility and tenderness of the bush, water well, feed and do not overload. Pasony grading is a must!

Formation of the crown of tomato Sevryuga
In order not to have tomato thickets 3 m high with clusters of unripe fruits, the indeterminate varieties are grown in one stem, getting rid of side stepsons. To the vertical trellis or anvil, the stalk of Sevryugi is tied up with growth, and heavy clusters are also fixed.
If a tomato is grown in a greenhouse, then removing the leaf above the fruiting brush is an incentive for early ripening. The top of the indeterminate variety is pinched 30 days before full harvest (exact dates are calculated based on the region and place of cultivation).
Attention! Removing the growing point immediately after the fruiting brush will result in the discharge of the fruit. Above the brush, leave 2 green leaves and carry out the embossing.
After cutting off the main stem, the plant actively produces stepchildren, education should be monitored, and timely removed. Lateral processes are formed not only at the top, but also in the lower part of the plant.

For example, the first difference lies in the fact that the variety “Pudovik” appeared before Sevriuga. The first was made in the State Register of Russia back in 2007. The mention of the second grade in the State Register is absent altogether.
In this regard, many disputes arose and the most meticulous gardeners conducted hundreds of experiments to prove the similarity of all characteristics. They grew seeds with the words “Sevryuga” and “Pudovik” on neighboring beds, under the same conditions, and they came to the general conclusion a long time ago that this is the same variety.
Russian breeders brought this variety back in the XXI century. A very popular opinion is that the tomato of Sevryuga is the same Pudovik, but its seeds are more adapted for planting in the harsh northern conditions of Siberia. That is the opinion that
Pudovik is the official name, and Sevryuga is a common folk. It is believed that the name of the tomato "Sevryuga" was due to the fact that if you cut it, the flesh will resemble the flesh of the fish of the same name.
