Tomato, 'Stupice'

Very early and very productive Czech variety with a strong following amongst PNW gardeners. Bred in the mid-’50s at an ag station in the community of Stupice just east of Prague and introduced to the US by Abundant Life Seed Foundation in 1977. 2-3” deep red tomatoes with a nice balance of sweet/acid flavor. At this point, Stupice (pronounced “stu-peach”) is a reliable old friend regardless of whether it is one of the first red tomatoes out of the garden year after year. Potato leaf foliage on compact 4’ Indeterminate vines. We have never been let down by their full flavor, early and ongoing productivity, and quality. Harvested by the bushel from field-grown plants which can be challenging in our climate. Mix with similarly sized Jaune Flammee and Czech’s Excellent Yellow for an eye-catching tricolor heirloom mix.
Indeterminate. 60-65 days. UO

Growing Info


Sow 4-7 weeks before your last frost date.

Transplant out after danger of frost (50+F nighttime temps).

Note: Don't start too early or plants will be leggy and root-bound! Tomatoes do well in clay to loam soils. 




18" spacing in rows 5' apart.


10-14 days @ soil temp 70-85F


Full sun


Medium-Heavy. Prefers well-drained, well-balanced fertile soil with a pH between 6.0-7.5. Note that excess Nitrogen will encourage foliage, not fruit! Low calcium and irregular watering will result in blossom end rot.


Row cover may be used for extra warmth and possible earlier fruit set.

Irregular watering can result in blossom end rot.

Plant deeply to encourage healthy root structure.

Indeterminate varieties may benefit from pruning suckers to encourage air flow, plant health, and energy towards plant top and fruit.

Trellis! We really like the Florida weave.
