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? Easy grower, good flavor

What are the cons? Pruning would help open vines

Review:

I am saving seeds from this tomato! To me it tastes like good tomato flavor with a little lemon juice added. Very pleasant. The real bonus is how hardy and disease resistant it is. I thought a small tomato cage would hold it--after all, is said it's determinate. Was I wrong! With cages bent in all directions, this row ripened first in our Oregon garden, produced perfectly round red-orange tomatoes that held well on the vine, and is the most consistent heirloom I have grown. No splitting, no blossome end rot, no problems. Tomato plants grew so bushy that they became a stout short hedge when planted two feet apart. They had a small amount of early blight that they quickly overcame. Production is in flushes, but the amount of fruit from these vines is more than any tomato we are growing. I recommend it.

Review:

I love these more than any tomato I've grown so far. Weeks of 100 degree heat didn't perturb them. They take fantastically to pots or in ground. I had so many successfully grown from seeds I shared with neighbors. My husband describes the flavor as almost having a chile kick. They are tangy, but it's not particularly sour to us. I love the taste. They are also prolific. If you live in a desert, this is your tomato.

What are the pros? OMG flavor! Vigorous!

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I was a little apprehensive given that the review made this tomato sound decidedly sour, but I was intrigued so I tried it last year anyway. I am SO glad that I did! I trialed over 33 varieties for the first or second time - this was the first year for Nineveh - and I was blown away. It’s a keeper for sure. Nineveh handled the numerous days of 100 degree heat here in SW Idaho like a champ and grew into rather massive plants that just couldn’t stop bearing fruit. And the flavor of the fresh sauce was simply delectable! For Mediterranean dishes in particular, Nineveh has a delicious, authentic flavor that beats the more common varieties cold. It grows well in a pot, too, although the fruits are smaller. The only thing that limited our harvest was the oppressively heavy smoke from the fires at the end of summer. Otherwise we would have drowned in fruit. After just one year, Nineveh has made it to our short list of staple tomatoes. I never want to be without it.

What are the pros? Sma[[ compact plant

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew 100 Nineveh tomato plants this year for fresh market sales, they were a hit, with many returning customers requesting them. I was looking for the most acidic tomato I could find, for customers who love acidic tomatoes, with customers reporting blisters in their mouths I think I have found it. I planted 8 week old transplants from my greenhouse into the field on black plastic mulch on the 1st of April. I started picking baseball sized tomatoes 45 days later from very compact, bushy plants. I plan on growing 500 for the 2018 season!

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.
