Maturity: 70 days from transplant
Kent Whealy of the Seed Savers Exchange brought this rugged early tomato to us from a Czechoslovakian tomato breeder in 1976. The 4’ tall semi- indeterminate potato-leaf plants yield clusters of 2” diameter bright red fruit when other varieties are just beginning to flower. Often eaten as a fresh slicer, Stupice has a bright tangy flavor that also holds well in soups and preserves. We found it to be extra sweet and the tastiest of our tomatoes that had to ripen indoors after the frost hit. Grow under hoop or green house cover.
