Tender Annual Semi-determinate. Heirloom. Stupice is a popular, vigorous plant which yields abundant, early 3-6 ounce red fruit. Its good, potato-leaf foliage results in high quality, round, crimson fruit. This Czechoslovakian-bred vine has exceptional flavor and ripens very early.
Grown In Containers: Transplant one seedling per pot; with a minimum size of 18 to 20 inch diameter and 18 inches high. Use fresh potting mix to prevent soil borne disease. Water regularly: in hot weather, pots may need water daily. Fertilize every other week with a low nitrogen fertilizer for strong plants and good yields.
GROWING NOTESTomatoes need full sun at least 6 hours every day. Provide strong stakes or wire cages at planting time as plants get heavy with fruit. Mulch plants well to maintain even moisture. Pick fully ripe. Don’t store tomatoes in the fridge.
