Determinate—Another variety contributed to the tomato world by our friend, expatriate Iraqi seed collector Nael Aziz. He stated that it is a bit unusual for an Iraqi type, because in Iraq the people tend to favor tart tomatoes, while this one is sweeter. Having solid, all-purpose flesh, it will take the heat, like Iraqi types generally. Named for the onetime caretaker of the greenhouses at the Agricultural College at Al Ghraib. Maintained in cultivation in private gardens there since the 1970's.

Review:

I'm growing more of the tomatoes from Iraq each year. I only planted 4 Abu Rawan this year, but also planted Basrawya, Rouge D'Irak and Al-Kuffa. Our summers are usually hot, but this year the heat set in long before it usually does. Our night temperatures have been high and the heat index during the day is well over 100 degrees for quite awhile now. This sort of heat doesn't usually set in this early. I usually start a lot of different varieties and many of them set tomatoes before the heat wave set in. Now most of the other varieties are dropping their blossoms without setting fruit. I'll always grow some of my favorites each year, but plan to dedicate most of the space to the Iraqi varieties that are able to set fruit at higher temperatures than most of the others. When it gets too hot for too long, only my Asian Traveler and Iraq varieties still set fruit. I don't normally grow a lot of cherry tomatoes which handle heat better than larger tomatoes.

Review:

I bought this tomato to try in our scorching Central Texas Heat, and was not disappointed! I assumed that because of its origins, it would perform well here, and it did. I grew it in a container, had no pest or disease problems and have plenty of medium size tomatoes on the vine. Despite getting a late start, it has set fruit and I am picking fruit along with varieties that I started sooner. If you live in a hot climate, I would highly recommend this tomato!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, best flavor

What are the cons? small fruit

Review:

I grew three different varieties, Bonny's Best, Glacier, and Abu Rawan summer 2015. Abu Rawan was by far my families' favorite. I thought they would be bigger tomatoes than what grew. But the smaller size didn't stop us from eating them all summer long. They produced a lot of smaller tomatoes! The other two verities were good too but I won't be growing them again. Abu Rawan will be in my garden again next year. They even made it into my salsa. I started the seeds inside and they grew extremely well.

Review:

This is the first time I was able to start tomatoes from seed. They have grown very well for me this year! We have had crazy weather this year with a lot of rain from May-July and the fruit hasn't split like some other varieties I have this year have done. The fruit is medium in size and is very flavorful. The plants are loaded with tomatoes and they are ripening nicely. Now that the heat has started here in Oklahoma the plants are still setting fruit which is a first for me. I am looking forward to a longer growing season this year.

Review:

We only grew 3 plants this season because we are moving in the fall and had seeded grass in our garden bed for the sale of the house. These guys will be in my garden from now on. Clusters of tomatoes so heavy that the 3 fiber glass stakes were wishful thinking in holding them up. I had to augment the stakes with 2 metal fence posts to get them off the ground but they are sturdy enough to not bother them. We love the tast and even with just 3 plants we are getting enough to eat, give away and freeze. I would like a bit bigger tomato but I won't blame the type until I try them in a 'real' garden with ample space to grow.
