Description
Stupice Certified Naturally Grown Seed

50 days, indeterminate — Pronounced "stu-pitza," the potato-leaf, four foot tall plants are loaded with 2˝ inch by two-inch diameter fruits that are borne in clusters. Extremely early, great flavor. Heavy yields all season long.

Kent Whealy received this variety in 1976 from Milan Sodomka, a Czechoslovakian tomato breeder. It was commercially offered here in the United States by the early 1980s by the Abundant Life Seed Foundation. Produces very well in northern climates. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Lots of tasty tomatoes
In 2014 I grew these in full shade. They still produced ripe tomatoes! They were small, bland, and mealy. But, tomatoes! In full shade in zone 6! (I don't mean just "on a north-facing balcony," either. I mean "at the bottom of a hill and shaded by trees.") In 2015 I put them in a part shade area near where Old Brooks had failed to produce the previous year. Despite the no-real-rotation and the part shade, these guys produced loads of very tasty tomatoes a bit smaller than a tennis ball or about the size of an egg. I grew these along with Legend and Old Brooks. All three are supposed to be resistant to early and late blight...but all three got early blight. These got it last and seemed not much affected (again despite the part shade). I would definitely call these tolerant to early blight. And they did not get late blight either. They survived and produced right up till frost. Tasty tomatoes in part shade...these guys are great. (Oh, and they're early, too. ;))

LOVE this little guy!
I started growing Stupice tomatoes in the early 1990s and every year I garden it is the one tomato I will plant without fail. Why? Because no matter what, Stupice does not fail me! The first year I planted it, I picked thirty-odd ripe tomatoes off of one plant in a single day. It doesn't care what the weather's like (as long as it's above freezing) it will bloom its little head off and set fruit on every blossom. This past summer we were hit with unusually high temperatures (one week of 110F, followed by consistent 98-105F until this week) and although several of my hot-weather tomato varieties have either not produced or at best struggled to set a crop, Stupice is one that performs consistently (it's also way earlier than any "early" tomato I've grown--normally have ripe tomatoes within 40-45 days). Its sweet flavor also makes it great for snacking, in salads, adding to sauces, or my favorite use yet: no sugar added catsup and BBQ sauces. <3

I'll definitely be doing more of these next year!
This is my first year successfully starting these from seed. By July 11, I had a ripe tomato on one of my Stupice plants. I don't usually get ripe tomatoes till the end of the first week of August, sometimes later, so I was very excited! I have a few more that look like they'll be ripe in a few days. I'll definitely be doing more of these next year!

Easy to grow/great produce
I have grown these for several years now, they are a very EARLY tomato; the taste is good too. I put this plant outside with protection in late April one year and picked my 1st tomato on June 24, a personal best. This is a prolific tomato also.

My Favorite
I have been planting this tomato variety every year for the past 5 seasons, when I really got serious about home food production. Stupice is a very early producer. I start seeds indoors in mid-march and plant outdoors in mid-May. Harvesting begins around mid-July and I continues to get fruit until I pull plants in mid-October. Medium sized fruit that has a wonderful tomato flavor. In 2012 I successfully used seeds that were purchased in 2009. I will continue to plant older seeds every year as an experiment to see how long they stay viable.
