Determinate. A very acid, almost sour-tasting tomato that is best for cooking uses. This tomato comes from Mosul (formerly Nineveh) Iraq, but is now said to be lost to cultivation due to the long on-going war and promotion of hybrid and gene-altered seeds. Bush plants set bright red, small to medium sized fruit. From Aziz Nail, an Iraqi friend that supplied us with a few seeds.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great yield

What are the cons? None

Review:

When I was looking for some sour tasting tomato to use in Indian cuisine , I stumbled upon this one. Glad I chose to grow this. I had good yield of tomatoes in 2 batches. Once around June and then a bounty around mid-september The tomatoes are super juicy and slightly sweet (if ripened on vine). Preformed well in raised bed and in the ground. Did not have any pest problem. A must try.

What are the pros? Don't know

What are the cons? Poor germination

Review:

I tried growing these a few years ago with newly purchased seed. Most of the seed never germinated at all and the seedlings the few seeds that did germinate resulted in weak, slow growing seedlings. By the time my plants were hardened off and ready to put into the garden, I only had one of these left. It slowly withered and died without ever producing a tomato. I've had great luck with some of the other tomatoes from Iraq though, but probably won't try this one again.

What are the pros? flavor, shape

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was a smaller plant that had incredible flavor. We had a cool wet year, and the flavor was incredible despite. I like the description of rich as opposed to sour. Savory instead of sweet. I think a tomato has to have this quality to be delicious. Im growing again. Also, these are a great shape and beautiful!

What are the pros? great flavor

What are the cons? small fruit

Review:

This is my new favorite tomato. I grew this for the first time in the summer of 2014. I started the seed in March but did not get the plants in the ground until the end of May because of the wet spring we had. However, our summer was extremely dry. We had one good rain in June and then no more rain for the rest of the summer. I had to water my plants and was not sure they would survive, but they did. The fruit was smaller than I expected, but the flavor was wonderful. My husband prefers a tangy tomato over a sweet one, so I decided to give this one a try. It was exactly what he liked. I will continue to grow this tomato in my garden - have already ordered my seed for this year. Love, Love, this tomato!!
