Al-Kuffa Tomato

In Stock

Compact, dwarf plants from Iraq. Small (2-4 oz.), red, globe-shaped fruits.
Al-Kuffa Certified Naturally Grown Seed

75 days, dwarf — The sturdy, compact, rugose, regular-leaf plants of 'Al-Kuffa', also marketed as 'Al Kuffa', set good amounts of small (two to four ounce), red, globe-shaped fruits. They are tasty and mild.

'Al-Kuffa' is a variety that was one of the varieties shared by Aziz Nael from Iraq with the Baker Creek Seed Company and commercially introduced in North America in 2009. Nael reported that it was a popular variety for growing in cool greenhouses in hot, Southern Iraq for personal use as well as late spring, early summer markets.

It was also grown outdoors in the cooler parts of Northern Iraq and is well suited for growing in two to five gallon containers. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Does well in the heat
I find myself growing more tomatoes from Iraq each year. They continue to set fruit when both day and night temperatures are so high that many of my favorite tomatoes just drop their blossoms. These tomatoes are quite small but continue to set fruit in the heat. Another one I grow is 'Abu Rawan', but it's not a slicer either. 'Basrawya' is slicer size, but it isn't as flavorful as the smaller tomatoes are. I usually try different tomatoes each year but always plant a few from Iraq to assure I have tomatoes when we have extremely hot weather.

Good Heat Tesistant Tomato
I didn't buy this tomato from Victory Seeds; I have it available here in Kuwait which is thirty minutes or so south of Basra, Iraq. This tomato is small and hardy, taking the heat up to 40C (104F). I'm crazy and I plant throughout the year; as long as I keep them covered and cool they survive the summer and fall here (and we just had a world record breaking summer). Produces dozens of little tomatoes that fit in my palm. Cons: None!
