Tomato, Stupice (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. 55 days. Indet. Potato leaf.

Flavor is rich and aromatic with that summer tomato taste sometimes missing in early tomatoes. Shrubby plants are short yet viney and continue to yield clusters of 2″, red, 2 oz fruit throughout the season. A very special Czech variety introduced to the Seed Savers Exchange Yearbook in the late 1970s and it has been a go-to workhorse variety in the Pacific Northwest ever since. We try to specialize in rarities and Stupice is definitely not a rarity any more. However, it is so good, so tasty and so early, that it is our yardstick to measure all other early tomatoes. Seriously, if you have never grown it we recommend trying it at least once. Originally introduced to the US from the former Czechoslovakia by Milan Sodomka.

Geographical Origin

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.

    The best Stupice strain

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    Stupice is one of the best varieties to grow in our garden (besides “Glacier” which you do not carry) and while every seed company out there carries Stupice the strain from you folks at Adaptive seeds is by far the best. Over time they seem to have gotten even larger and ripen earlier than say 5 years ago. This year they were immensely aromatic and sweet as never before. I did nothing different so it must be the result of Adaptive Seed’s breeding and developing their Stupice strain, it is noticeably different and so much better than strains from other seed companies I tried.
    Our garden is in the coastal range of Oregon and has good sun but not as much as other places, it is a bit shady actually.
