Sioux Tomato

         
 
8 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
One of the best-known historic tomatoes, the medium-sized fruit are early. Productive plants and great flavor made this one of the most popular Midwestern tomatoes in the late 1940's. In 1947, Oscar H. Will & Co. stated, "It out-yielded all other varieties in South Dakota trials." Peter Henderson & Co., in 1951, "Two weeks earlier than Marglobe or Rutgers." This tomato was one of our most requested, as people love the smooth, beautiful fruit and heavy yields. Introduced in 1944 by the University of Nebraska.

What are the pros? Delicious flavor/nice size

What are the cons? Stopped producing mid-summer

Review:

Initially, plants were sturdy and productive. I planted six plants, and they produced steadily until about mid-summer. Past mid-summer the production dropped off and fruit was prone to rot very quickly. Although I was disappointed that they didn't last the entire season (perhaps what is meant by "early" in the sales description), their early production was profuse, and kept me busy canning what I couldn't eat. The tomato is round, acidic, and apparently not a favorite of stink bugs (very bad here in VA). I plan on growing these again this season.

Review:

The Sioux was the prize winner of our garden this year. We had so much rain here that all off our other tomato plants suffered, producing very small and few fruits. Not the Sioux. We got some softball sized fruits from it, but most were a little bit bigger than a baseball. We got a heavy yield of beautiful, round, bright red fruits. I gave some to a friend and she said it was the best tomato she's ever had. If it wasn't for these tomatoes, I would have considered our tomato garden this year to be a crop failure. This tomato has earned it's keep and will be planted in our garden every year.

Review:

Our Sioux tomatoes were the prize of our garden this year. We had a very prolonged hot season (90 degrees), and while all of our other tomatoes dropped flowers right and left the Sioux just kept on pumping out big, 4" beauties. We're in initial dieback for the year now and we STILL have a few fruits ripening, despite the cold nights. I'm very pleased with this cultivar, and will be main-cropping it next year for our church's affordable foods program. This year we grew it in companion with Anaheim peppers, cilantro, and carpet of snow. All of these did really well with the Sioux, while the same combo companioned with beefsteaks (which suffered in the heat) did not.

What are the pros? Very sturdy plants.

What are the cons? They died early.

Review:

These grew into nice sturdy seedlings, and matured into short, stocky plants. They put on 4-6 clusters of peach-sized tomatoes. Then we had a stretch of hot humid weather and the plants seem to have shut down and never bounced back. I have 4 of these plants and they're all pretty much dead, it looks like from late blight, but none of my other plants (11 others) have it, only these. Will probably try something else next year.

Review:

My favorite tomato. It is the only tomato I have found that has the "old fashion" flavor of my childhood. Lots of med size fruit and great for canning as well.
