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? Beautiful dark red

What are the cons? Too small, flavor wasn't great

Review:

I was excited to try this variety but it wasn't what I was expecting. Kinda small and useless in my kitchen. It wasn't great tasting in a salad or by itself. So I ended up pureeing it in to sauces when I was canning. The plants didn't get very tall and were robust with dark green foliage, very beautiful - One plant was threatened with disease but came through and grew back healthy as ever. The tomatoes themselves were a deep, dark red, GORGEOUS! But very small, almost a cherry tomato size. The skins were a bit thick too. I won't be growing these again because there are many other varieties to try. But had fun experimenting with this one.

What are the pros? can take heat and humidity

What are the cons? not much taste

Review:

This is my first year growing this particular tomato. The season so far has been very hot and humid. These tomato plants dont seem to mind it at all, all look healthy and strong while the other variety that I am growing is having a rough time. However, the yield has been low and tomatoes are mostly tasteless.

What are the pros? Prolific, heat tolerant

What are the cons? A bit tart but no real dislike

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

What are the cons? none

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.

What are the pros? Great tasting

What are the cons? Sometime smaller then normal

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.
