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? prolific, early, hardy

What are the cons? cracks

Review:

I grew 25 varieties of tomatoes last year and this one was one of my favorites. The plant had great germination and grew to be a very hardy, self contained plant that did very well in a container. It was my very first to set fruit and ripen and the most prolific of all my reds that grew in pots, probably because the fruits are more of a medium in size. Very much of a laid back plant like a previous poster stated. After the first wave of tomatoes were picked it quickly put on another wave. Some of the tomatoes had cracks but I think that was more grower error in watering. I liked the tangy tomato flavor. If you are new to tomatoes and want to be sure of getting SOMETHING to grow, I recommend this guy.

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.

Nice acid but had blossom root
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 2.0
 

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.

Great tomato to grow

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.
