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.

What are the pros? Loaded plants

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.

What are the pros? Compact growth

What are the cons? Nothing to dislike

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.

What are the pros? Holds up to the heat

Review:

We live in Zone 9 sub-tropical south Texas so tomatoes are a challenge due to the heat. Usually the season is over by the middle of June but these tomatoes are still going strong. Without them, I'd have no tomatoes right now. I have canned them and canned spaghetti sauce and they taste wonderful. I highly recommend them for those who live in very hot areas. Not sure it would do as well for those in the north.

What are the cons? tops cracked but who cares?

Review:

I grew 20 varieties of 40 tomato plants this year in my garden. I will admit, I wanted the Italian varieties to be my favorites, but this tomato was so flavorful and prolific that it won top honors this year in our taste tests. Of the smaller varieties, only black cherry beat it out for taste. I grew 3 plants and all 3 produced huge amounts of fruit. We have gallons frozen whole to use in soups this winter. My plants produced somewhat smaller sized tomatoes but that could be due to the fact that I didn't continue fertilizing the garden regularly once the plants came into full production. They were still triple the size of the Italian varieties though. And I like this size much better than a cherry tomato. We found this to be a great multipurpose tomato and will continue to grow this in the future.

What are the pros? Prolific, tasty, hardy

What are the cons? A bit small

Review:

These were the best performers in my high plains garden in 2012. We have alkaline soil. I started inside and moved them out too early and had to cover through some record breaking late frosts. Then we had a typical hot and dry summer. They did great and produced a ton. Most went into pico de gallo and I froze some for use in cooked salsa this winter. They are a bit hard-skinned, but that was good: no cracks or rot. Nice taste. They were on the small side, so a bit more work in chopping.
