History * An heirloom tomato from Czechoslovakia. * An 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]]. * There are two varieties that were developed from the cross by Jaroslav Homola: ** [[Stupické polní rané]] (early field Stupice) was named and released in 1955. ** [[Stupické skleníkové]] (greenhouse Stupice), named and released in 1954. It is said to have fewer seed locules and it is more flattened globe. * 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. * There are also two more variants (possibly later selections from the two original varieties?) - [[Stupické rané]] and [[Stupické rané skleníkové]], but these did not receive recognition in Czechoslovakia and were not cultivated, so there are no seeds available. * First offered commercially in North America by Abundant Life Foundation (now [[vendor::Abundant Life Seeds|'' '']] [[Abundant Life Seeds]] '' ''). * According to the founder of Abundant Life Seed Foundation Forest Shomer of Port Townsend, Milan Sodomka sent him some seeds in March 1976, which included Stupice. Please visit [http://www.seattlepi.com/lifestyle/homegarden/article/Good-Enough-To-Eat-Kind-words-from-the-1187046.php] to read the letter that Milan Sodomka sent to Forest Shomer. * It is not clear which one of these original Czech varieties was sent to Abundant Life Seed Foundation, and who and why changed the name to 'Stupice', as there was no mention of varieties names in Milan Sodomka letter to Forest Shomer. * By 1986, it was already listed in the Seed Savers Exchanged yearbook by nine SSE members, which tells a lot about its popularity back then, and it continues to be a very popular tomato in North America. * One of the 100 heirloom tomatoes noted in [http://www.amazon.com/Smith-Hawken-Heirloom-Tomatoes-American/dp/0761114009/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1195655982&sr=1-1 Carolyn J.
