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? Prolific, heat tolerant

Review:

This is the first year I have grown this variety in south central Kansas. I am getting lots of 2" tomatoes but they seem to be more tart than sweet. That isn't really a problem since I have several varieties growing--I will probably do some cooking or make sauce with some of my Abu Rawan fruits. The plant is unfazed by the heat wave we are having

What are the pros? Flavor, easy to grow in a pot

Review:

These tomatoes have an intense flavor, and grow well in a container with a cage. They are larger than a cherry, but smaller than a full size tomato. They grow well in our Middle TN heat & humidity. I planted twelve different tomato varieties this year & this is easily one of my favorites.

Review:

I have been growing this this variety for several years now. These do well in our heat in AZ. I however have not needed to purchase new seeds as I let the tomato's that the birds don't finish lay and reseed themselves.

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.
