Product ID: stupice
Stupice are one of my favourite tomatoes and possibly the most favourite. I originally bought the seeds several years ago when I was trying to find cold resistant heirloom varieties. I bought several packets of cold tolerant seeds such as “First in the Field” “Sub Arctic” "Father Frost", etc but Stupice were the ones that I most liked. There are several reasons why I am a stupice tomato aficionado which I will list below.
Taste: The taste is perfect with just the right contrast of sweet and acid flavours.
Blight Resistant: If there is a lot of blight they do still suffer but a lot less than other varieties planted next to them. Size: They are gold ball sized which means that they don’t take ages to pick and process like cherry tomatoes.
Productivity: They are very prolific and produce vines of several tomatoes.
More Information: Stupice tomatoes originally came from the Czech Republic. I pronounce Stupice as “STEW PIS” but it should be “STU PEACH KA” or “STOO PEET SAY”. Stupice is naturally disease resistant and tends to suffer less from blight than other tomatoes planted next to it. It is compact indeterminate (vine) type with potato leaves. The golf ball sized tomatoes grow in clusters. They matures in 60-65 days. They are said to be cold tolerant.
Bowl of Stupice Tomatoes
One of the best ways to use these tomatoes is to make a tomato salad. Just cut them into chunks. Add a sprinkle of salt and a good glug of extra virgin olive oil. Wait 20 minutes for the salt to pull out some of the juices and you have a dish fit for heaven.
