Description
Super Sioux (a.k.a. Super Lakota)
70 days, indeterminate — An improved version of the old (1944) variety 'Sioux', bred at the Nebraska Experimental Station. This variety is a good choice for hot, dry locations and it sets fruit well in high temperatures.

The red fruits are globe-shaped, about four ounces, thick walled and fleshy with a nice old-time tart flavor. A good processing tomato for home gardening and early fresh market sales.  There are approximately 80 seeds per 0.25 gram.

Wanted to like this one
Seeds sprouted easily and plants grew abundantly but with our temps. At 100F for several weeks, the blossoms dropped and fruit didn't set well til late in the season. The flavor was pretty bland which was very disappointing as I grew this because the description said "old-time tart flavor." Will try something different this year.

VSC NOTES: Even though 'Super Sioux' is more tolerant of high temperature than many varieties, no tomato variety that I can think of will set fruit at 100F sustained temperatures. This is simply due to the biology of the plant. Tomato pollen is killed at high temperatures. In regards to flavor, since the fruit were set late and it takes nice warm sun to fully develop the flavor components, you didn't get to taste their full potential. If you try it again, I would recommend starting much earlier so that they are flowering and setting fruit before the peak of your hot season arrives. Thank you for sharing . . . this is good to know! ~Mike

A definite favorite
Super Sioux was one of the first heirlooms and hot dry climate tomatoes I ever grew and they normally do extremely well, this year being an exception but then again, we had almost two months straight of temperatures over 100F. A few miles away from us is about 5F cooler so this summer's temps there were like ours are normally and all the friends we gave these to in that area are tickled pink because their Super Siouxs are going like gang-busters while the usual "tried and true" varieties aren't doing anything but dropping blossoms because of the heat. This tomato is a great size for canning and has excellent flavor so makes an awesome slicer too. (I'm fond of them stuffed with tuna salad or sliced on fried or scrambled eggs.) I also like adding them to blander paste tomatoes to add some zip to sauces.
