NEW! Beautiful, round-globe fruit that have a delicious tomato flavor and are quite smooth and perfect looking. We received this great tomato from Aziz Nael whose brother collects seeds in occupied Iraq. These come from the southern town of Basra and seem to be adapted well to hot weather as Basra is in the hot, southern part of Iraq. Nael Aziz continues to send us seeds from Iraq and continues to write about the vast genetic depletion in vegetable crops since the war.

This variety is doing exceptionally well in our desert climate. I started the plants indoors, then transplanted late spring. We had record cold and wet weather in March, April and May, but I was still able to harvest fruit before the 4th of July! It continues to set fruit during the times other plants have flower drop due to warm night time temps. The fruit has a little bit of tang to it, but overall, a very good tomato. No cracking, no deformities, just perfectly round smooth tomatoes. I've yet to see any blossom end rot on any of them. I've been very pleased with this variety. Fruits are a little smaller than a tennis ball. We'll see how they do later this year during canning season.

The plants are slow to grow. They have been in the ground for 3.5 months and are still only 1-2 feet tall. However, they are doing great! It's 114 degrees and the plants have approx 30 fruits each and are still flowering!! They show NO signs of heat distress! The perfect zone 10 tomato!

All my seeds germinated-its amazing. I have 30 beautiful, vigorous plants to plant in a couple of weeks when the cold and wind die down some. Albuquerque gets hot in summer.90-100 degree days are common. Hoping this variety will do well here in high desert. Will keep you posted.

I was skeptical that I would get many seeds to germinate from a 25 seed packet, but to my surprise I got a nearly 100% germination rate. My plants are about 6 inches tall already and they've been very easy to grow so far. They look extremely healthy and I can't wait to test out the fruits.
