Planting Instructions for Super Sioux Tomato Seeds

Start Heirloom / Open Pollinated Tomato seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date. Plant the Tomato seeds ¼” deep in sterile seed starting mix. Germination occurs in 6-14 days in soil 70-90°F. Once true leaves develop, separate Heirloom / Open Pollinated Tomato plants into 3-4″ pots, placing in full light & cooler temps (60-70°F). Set out hardened off Tomato transplants, in full sun, once soil has warmed, 18-30″ apart, in rows 3-4′ apart. Plant tall, spindly Tomato seedlings deeper, the stems will sprout roots and support and strengthen the plant. To help prevent blossom end rot, put 1 Tbs of lime, ground oyster shells, or crushed eggshells at the bottom of your planting hole. The calcium will help build strong cell walls once your heirloom tomatoes plants start producing fruit. For strong tomato plants, add 1 Tbs of aged compost and 1 Tbs of bone meal to the bottom of the hole as well.

    We do enjoy and appreciate trying different varieties to discover what grows best for us. Super Sioux came in a distant 2nd to Oregon Spring this year. Super Sioux required more garden space and provided less tomatoes in the bargain. The tomatoes are medium sized, and with OK flavor but perhaps our conditions (soil, climate, garden space) are likely a factor in not choosing to grow this variety again.

    I think this tomato is incredible here in Arkansas. It tastes great and sets fruit at temperatures over 95. It resembles the better boy hybrid in size and appearance, but is way better. It cracks often, but rarely splits wide open, so it stores decently well. It is a traditional red acidic tomato that will do excellent in the south, and probably poor in the north. I think it likes humidity as well. Keep fertilizing organically, and it will produce well until frost, like the true Arkansas Traveler seed does. Bigger than expected also…I believe we got several over 10 oz.
