The tomatoes in the picture really look like cocktail tomatoes. But this is because this year's weather was extremely sunny, warm and dry. Tomato fruit ripened before they grew to their usual size. They are about 30% smaller. The only Czech cocktail hybrid tomato with excellent taste is Bejbino F1. New Galant F1 lacks good taste.

Bower, thank you for your advice. I'm not a great chef, but I dared for that baked sauce. A month ago, the son bought a 75,- Kč ($ 3 US dollar) baking electric pot in the sale at a ridiculous price. So I put the tomatoes there and the others gave them and in half an hour I had a sauce which I then mixed. Yum. Today I will continue, I will make the sauce of all the tomatoes I had in the hotbet and are already very rally. Thank you once again.

Hi Vladimir, I hope you are well. I see things a bit differently than you wrt the CZ hybrids. For me this summer - also hot & very dry - the CZ hybrids delivered ripe fruit earlier than their American hybrid counterparts, and imho, there are a couple of gems. Here are my rankings & thoughts:

Will grow again:
1. Start S F1 - 57 DTM - This is my favourite because the taste is #2 (of the CZ) and it is the earliest. Much better taste than Toro F1, also Burpee's Fourth of July & Early Treat, and all of the 5 Stupické varieties I grew this year.
2. Uragan F1 - 63 DTM - Taste is #1 of the CZ, imho better than Start S. The first & only seed to germ. took 19 days. The taste is as good as the mid-season US hybrids, and it is earlier than all of them.
3. Toro F1 - 59 DTM - Taste is #3 of the CZ. The plants are very vigorous and for me more productive than Start S. We made some early/tasty tomato soup from these.

Will not grow again:
4. Gallant F1 - 71 DTM - A very beautiful plant with piles of thick skinned, tasteless fruit. Disappointing.
5. Charmant F1 - 58 DTM - Not a sweet cherry, so of limited interest for me. Flavour is just ok, similar to Juliet F1.

I did not grow Rubinka.

Seed planting date was Apr 16, and plant out date was Jun 3 (6.9 week window).

Robert, I'm glad you like some of these Czech tomatoes. This year I was not happy with them All fruits were significantly smaller than usual . Maybe it's a way of growing, weather, I do not know. I tasted them only at the beginning of the season, not all of them were mature enough, I was disappointed. Then I did not worry about them, because I had a big heart and big Spanish beefstaeks. I'm going to compare tastes now in the late of season.
Uragan F1 - I've had the same seed germination problems, I'm going to buy new seeds in the autumn, and I'll send you them along with other StartF1 and Toro F1 seeds (I do not know if you have enough of them).

PS.: Rubinka was the biggest disappointment for me. All the fruits cracked, and to this day I did not taste a good tomato.
I agree with your rating of Charmant F1 and Gallant F1
