50 days. Determinate. One of the very earliest tomatoes, the compact plants produce lots of 2-oz red fruit. One of the best for cool conditions and will set fruit in lower temperatures than most. It has even been grown in the Southern Yukon. Developed by Dr. Harris, Beaverlodge Research Station, Alberta, Canada.

What are the pros? Lots of tomatoes

What are the cons? Not early at all

Review:

Seeded on February 24th, had 9 of 12 seeds germinate. We transplanted on May 13th. It's a 50 day variety so we were expecting our first ones in early/mid July. It's July 27th now and while there are loads of green tomatoes on them, we are finally just getting a slight blush of color on one tomato! While waiting for these we've already had 2 of our 75 day varieties ripen, as well as an 80 day variety (Chadwick Cherry). I don't think we'll bother with this one again. The plants are quite healthy and productive, but if it's going to be late-season tomato, there are other types I'd rather buy.

What are the pros? Taste, Hardy, productive

What are the cons? Nothing bad to say about these

Review:

Best of the many early toms I've tried over many decades of gardening. They taste best, are highly productive, and start producing a full 2 months earlier than my earliest main crop...and continue til the main crop toms come in. They look like heck when the weather gets hot, yet continue to produce some toms til late August/Sept.

What are the pros? Largest tomato for our area

What are the cons? lower production

Review:

We live on a west facing mountain slope, in a cooler part of Northern California. Because of our location, we cannot grown anything bigger than cherry or grape tomatoes. Even plum and icicles are a bit touchy. This year I was given some subarctic plenty plants. They have produced the largest tomatoes we have ever had up here! Taste and texture are great. Habit is small. Each plant produces slightly less than I would like, but really, who cares? We are able to grow slicers for the first time ever! Highly recommend this to anyone with very short days.

What are the pros? Hardiness & consistency

What are the cons? size

Review:

My seed source was not Baker Creek but my experience may be helpful. I planted this variety back in the 80s. Didn't clean all the tomatoes up in the fall and in the spring had a cluster of volunteers. I thinned to the strongest 4 or 5 plants, and repeated this process for over 10 years. Throughout that time these tomatoes were the most consistent of all the varieties I planted, the hardiest, and the most disease and bug resistant of all the dozen or so varieties I tried. Plants are a little bigger but similar to Roma tomatoes in not needing to be staked. Not quite as meaty as a Roma but similar. Tasty, but not the tastiest tomato I ever grew but far from the worst. Drawback for me was the size - too big to pop in your mouth like cherry or grape tomatoes and too small to be really useful for slicing. Good salad tomato.

Review:

I have grown SubArctics from seed for about 5 years. This 4 year old seed produced 3 out of 6 seeds planted. I kept 2 They are planted in 5 gallon paint buckets with holes 1/3 filled with fine sandy gravel the rest in Black Gold Alaskan mix. I filled with dirt as the plants grew because they become very root bound by end of summer which is Aug 1 here. An exceptionally warm spring they were in the greenhouse overnight by May 14. About 3 ft tall they are loaded with 1" to 1 1/3 inch green tomatoes and I found 2 ripe today. I fertilized with fish emulsion 1-2 x a week. Also alternated water direct from the well and water that has been through the filtration and softener to avoid mineral build up. They are out doing the compact variety I planted in the same medium . Temps here range from 48 at night to 80 in the greenhouse during the day. No lower than 59 daytime for the last month.
