About Urbikany (Uribikany)

‘Urbikany’ is of former Czechoslovakia origin, bred by a famous Czech tomato breeder named Jaroslav Homola. Milan Sodomka bought the seeds of four commercial Czechoslovak tomato varieties in a shop and sent them in original bags to the USA in the late 1970s (possibly 1976).*
A determinate, regular leaf, tomato plant producing small (2-4oz./50-120g), roundish, red, fruits that are high in acid and medium in sugar, yet very good, old-fashioned, tomato flavor. A fantastic addition to salads. Production begins early, sometimes very early in the season and fruits set well even in cooler summer climates.

*Vladimir from Check Republik (MrBig46), a member of Tomatoville forum, describes as follows on August 3rd, 2016:
‘He was interested in the American magazine (everything American was with us behind the Iron Curtain at the time in 1974 either banned or at least inappropriate). We each wanted the forbidden fruit. Milan Sodomka went to the store, bought tomato seeds for commercial, which was available at the time, and sent them to the US along with a request for the magazine. Long name someone edited for easier Stupice (still to Americans about the unspeakable word). Milan Sodomka sent: Stupice – Stupické Polní Rané, Olmovic – Olomoucké Nízké, Czech Bush – Imun, Urbikany – Vrbičanské Nízké.’
