  • Regular price $3.50


(50 -70 days) This variety does extremely well here on the farm. Superb and popular potato-leafed Czechoslovakian heirloom, pronounced “stu-PEACH-ka”. Produces heavy yields of 2-3” plum-shaped, red-orange fruits borne in clusters, producing very early and continuing to give large crops all summer. Stupice is a very reliable, cold tolerant, disease-resistant determinate plant for northern climates, compactly growing to about 4 feet tall. Produces fruits all season that are juicy and tangy with a wonderful, sweet flavor for fresh eating and salads, and they also dry well. A perfect choice if you only have space for a single plant. Very early, 50-70 days to maturity, small-medium size.
