When making “homemade” tomato juice, the choice of tomato variety depends on the preferences of the supplier. Someone likes sweet, someone slightly sour. Someone likes thick with a lot of pulp, and someone prefers "some water". You can use “culling” for juice: small and ugly tomatoes that will not look good in home preservation, or, on the contrary, are too large and non-standard. But a mandatory requirement when making juice is the degree of ripeness of tomatoes.
Tip! For juice, it is better to take slightly overripe tomatoes than those that ripened at the stage of technical ripeness.
The latter give tasteless juice is not saturated color.
If different varieties of tomatoes are planted on the site, you can try to combine them in different proportions, creating an “author's” bouquet of taste, since each variety usually has its own flavor and taste.
For lovers of “liquid” juice, not too fleshy “cherry” varieties are very well suited, fans of “thick” can choose for themselves salad tomatoes. In this case, it is necessary not to overdo it with the "fleshy." Tomato with "sugar" pulp is not able to give a lot of juice.
