75 days, tree-type — 'Al-Kuffa' is a variety that was shared by Aziz Nael from Iraq with Baker Creek Seed Company and commercially introduced by them in 2009.  The sturdy, rugose-leaf, compact, indeterminate plants set good amounts of small (two to four ounce), red, globe-shaped fruits.  They are tasty and mild.

Nael reported that it was a popular variety for growing in cool greenhouses in hot, Southern Iraq for personal and late spring, early summer markets.  It was also grown outdoors in the cooler north.  It 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 resistant 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!
