Description

Extra-large fruit, blocky and deep red

Days to Maturity: 68

Determinate

Introducing the best saladette (Roma) tomato for any climate—hot, cold, or temperate. Supremo earns its name with every extra-large, blocky deep red fruit it sets. You're going to use it not only for sauces and canning, but as a go-to salad slicer.

Supremo is very heavy bearing, and the fruit ranges from large to extra-large size. It holds well on the plant too, so even though this is a determinate variety (setting its crop all at once instead of repeating all season), you can stagger your harvest a bit if you like.

But the flavor is the best part. Firm yet juicy, very uniform and smooth, and rich in vitamins, Supremo is a taste treat fresh from the vine, canned, frozen, or sauced. And the disease resistance of this compact, early to midseason plant is unbeatable: it demonstrates superior resistance to Fusarium wilt races 1-3, bacterial speck, root-knot, and verticillium wilt, as well as good resistance to spotted wilt.

Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Take seedlings outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Let them acclimate for a day or two, then plant them about 2 to 2½ feet apart in the garden. Watch out for late spring frosts, protecting them with a row cover or Kozy Coat if freezing weather is forecast. You'll fall in love with over-the-top productive Supremo.
