Prolific fruiting plant, even in the cold
by Vanessa F
I live in the Pacific Northwest, and it has been a very cold summer so far with a few searing hot days. It has gotten as low as 40 at night some nights. I started my tomato seeds indoors in early February and didn't put my plants out until mid-May. I almost didn't put my stupice starts out as they were TINY compared to my others. Boy am I glad I planted them anyway. They were my first plants to set fruit and the first to ripen. As I type, I have two handfuls of fruit on my counter from one plant. The fruit size varies greatly--some bigger, some cherry-sized--but these things are prolific. The plants have handled the crazy weather without any pampering, and they are the only plants I haven't pruned heavily to encourage more fruit development. I will definitely be planting these again. If they produce this well in such an off/cold year, I can't wait to see what they do in a warmer summer!
Best early tomato, I have been growing Stupice for decades
I have been growing Stupice for decades in the Pacific NW. They are very early but keep producing until September. Tastes is very good--not Brandywine good but better than most. I grew them just to try out one year and have been growing ever since. One of the two tomato varieties that I ALWAYS grow.
