Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral papayaman On Jun 2, 2013, papayaman from Los Altos, CA wrote:

I will provide a further update later in the season, but for now (June 2) I am disappointed to say that Sub-Arctic Plenty has not turned out to produce the earliest tomatoes in my garden. The prize goes to Supice, which I planted a week later, instead. My Sub-Artic tomatoes look to be at least a week away from any ripe fruit, and the only reason I planted these tomatoes was because they were supposed to be the earliest on the planet. :-(

Very impressive production. Said to be determinate, but it kept producing most of the growing season in my garden.

Very abundant with about 80 fruit per plant. Set fruit very well even with cool nights. Did not sweeten well perhaps due to too many tomatoes on one plant. Will add extra Nitrogen next year to see if it fixes problem.

An excellent tomato choice for making salsa. You will harvest an abundant crop of ripen tomatoes early June through late September.

They claimed it would be ripe in 42 days and it was easily true. Plenty of great medium sized guys. A determinate but by the time they run out the "really good ones" will be available. A terrific tomato for your early start!
