I planted a few of these in 7 gallon grow bags a couple of years ago. They continued to set fruit during high temps when most of my tomatoes just dropped their blossoms.
The flavor was average, but it kept producing medium sized red tomatoes when most of my plants provided nothing.
This year I have some planted in an Earthbox.
I keep trying various tomatoes from Iraq and most of them set fruit when others won't.
Since our summers are hot and dry and the heat seems to set in earlier than it used to, I will keep growing Iraqi tomatoes.
I've had good luck with Abu Rawan and Basrawya in the past. This year I've added Al-Kuffa and Rouge D'Irak to my garden.
