Stupice Tomato (Heirloom, 65 Days)

Czechoslovakian Heirloom. Very early to mature. The flavorful 3 to 4 ounce fruit are borne in clusters of 5 or more. Yields are quite high and nearly every fruit is perfect. The color is an intense red and the sweet, tangy flavor is what you would associate with larger beefsteak types.

25 seeds

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after last frost. 

Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

    Outwits Early Frosts

    Some years Idaho has early light frosts. Real early like late Aug. early Sept. With a sheet thrown over the plant, Stupice lasts better than other varieties. The seeds don't turn black as some do with a little night time drop in temperature! Love it.

    Earliest harvest ever for me in Maine!

    These seeds came highly recommended from a grower in northern Indiana. I was tired of waiting till August for homegrown tomatoes and was assured these would be cold tolerant and early. Stupidest came through brilliantly by July 3 here in Wiscasset, Maine. The tomatoes were very red, sweet and all perfectly shaped. You won't be disappointed.

    Yum!

    I love this tomato! It grows OK here in my cool pacific climate, produces smallish fruit that has an exceptionally sweet taste (for a tomato). And it's early!!
