Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Stupicke Polni Rane - sliced fruit. 2014-07-31.


Compact indet. palnts with potato leaf foliage. Very early fruit set and early maturity. High yield. Fruit shape is very similar to that of Stupice tomato, with first fruit being fused and hence larger than the subsequent fruits. Fruits are round, red, blemish free, with no core, 1.5-2.5 oz. Excellent rich flavor.

  • An old heirloom tomato from Czechoslovakia. Bred by a famous Czech tomato breeder Jaroslav Homola (Selecta firm) in the 1940s, from a cross of Mikado x Sláva Porýni x Solanum racemigerum. Beginning of cultivation - 1943. Registration: Praha 10.12.1946. Named and released in 1955.
  • The breeding efforts took place on a state-owned Stupice farm founded in 1921 (Stupice is a small village near Prague, Czechoslovakia). The farm was nationalized in 1948 (as all the firms in former Czechoslovakia), then privatized again after 1989, and the 'rights' to the tomato was given to firms Sempra Praha, Seva Seed and Moravoseed.
  • 'polní' means 'field' and 'rané' means 'early' in Czech language.
  • There was also another variant mentioned (possibly later selection?), Stupické rané, but it did not receive recognition in Czechoslovakia and was not cultivated, so there are no seeds available.
  • Introduced commercially in North America by Tatiana's TOMATObase Seeds in 2015.
