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 1970s.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, tough plant.

What are the cons? flavor, size

Review:

I was expecting a sweet tomato per the description here. instead this is one of the more sour tomatoes in my garden, the taste isn't balanced, sourness is too sharp. besides the fruits are quite small.

What are the pros? Unfazed by the heat

What are the cons? Slow production

Review:

I'm new to this, so I'm blaming myself for slow production and small fruit. Next year will be sure not to crowd it, and to let the seedlings harden off correctly. (killed a few transplants by not bringing them inside over night in March) Even with all my problems these are very easy to grow. They look the best of all our tomato plants in the middle of July and August. They aren't as prone to spider mites as some varieties we've grown. They aren't beefsteak sized tomatoes, but they taste great with good texture.

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.
