68 days from transplanting. Determinate.
Supremo produces a dependable mid-season crop of impressively large, uniform tomatoes that set well even in heat. You’ll have loads of tomatoes to make sauce or paste, chop for salads or salsas, or slice for sandwiches. In areas with a long growing season, a second successive planting will double your harvest! Supremo has an excellent disease resistance package that includes Bacterial Speck (PST) and Tomato Spotted Wilt virus (TSWV).

This packet yields approximately 8 plants when started indoors.

Days to Emerge:
5-10 days

Seed Depth:
1/4"

Seed Spacing:
A group of 3 seeds every 24"

Row Spacing:
3'

Thinning:
When 2" tall, thin to 1 every 24"

When to sow outside: Recommended for mild climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost. Provide adequate light to produce sturdy plants.

Harvesting: Supremo are at the peak of sunripened deliciousness when they are fully red and have a slight give when gently squeezed. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of unripe tomatoes near the end of the season and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
