Nineveh Tomato

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? Love the tangy goodness.

What are the cons? none (kinda small size fruit)

Review:

I have been growing this one for 3 years now, and of all my (millions) of tomato plants and varieties in my garden, this one is UNSTOPPABLE! Incredible hardiness, seems to actually take a light frost without blemishing. Easy-going, laid-back plant. Makes a fantastic sauce; the sour adds just enough tang to balance the sweetness when added with sweeter varieties (such as the pinks and darks). Cooks down well. Very prolific; heavy yields on a sturdy plant. What's not to love? Lots of friends enjoyed these too.

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Blossom Rot long germination

Review:

I was hopefully ordering this tomato because we love an acid filled tomato. I started in my green house. Slow to germinate vs 5 other varieties I grew last year, but, finally broke through Transplanted well. We had a wet cool spring which resulted in first fruits blossom rot. Later fruins faired better. They lay a lot of fruit great flavor. I will try again hoping for better results.

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.
