Stupice Tomato

SKU: tstu $2.95

Winner! The second earliest of more than 300 of the earliest heirloom tomato varieties tested in our gardens over the years. This variety was our winner for years until beaten by a new cultivar, Joe's Earliest Slicer, in our 2015 trials. Stupice is medium size. Early and determinate. Produces tomatoes for about six weeks, with production slowing over time after the first heavy harvest. Approx. 15 seeds. Annual. Free shipping on orders over $26.


NUTRITION INFO:

Amish Paste Tomatoes provide potassium (10%DV), dietary fiber (4%DV), vitamin A (40%DV), vitamin C (20%DV), calcium (2%DV) and iron (4%DV).

HOW TO GROW: Plant seeds indoors or in a greenhouse in March, or 8-10 weeks before your last frost date. Plant quarter-inch deep and keep moist until germination. Seedlings must have direct, full sunlight. Plants cannot be exposed to freezing temperatures. Harvest the tomatoes as they turn red and slightly soft to the touch. Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost. Transplant outside after all danger of frost. Tomatoes begin to grow heavily in hot weather, but do not produce fruit in temperatures above 95 degrees. Stupice (prounounced stew-pee-chay) tomatoes are medium to small in size and determinate, which means they will heavily set fruit in a short window, instead of setting fruit randomly through the season. Determinate cultivars like Stupice are preferred for canning and freezing because the crop comes on at basically the same time. Tomatoes may be pruned if you wish fewer fruits that are larger, but I don't prune my plants because I'm happy to have more tomatoes that are slightly smaller. Tomatoes tend to crack easily when overwatered. Make sure you reduce watering when tomatoes begin to ripen. Amish Paste tomatoes are about 20 percent larger than Roma tomatoes but set about 30 percent fewer tomatoes.
