About Nineveh

Originally 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. A very acidic, almost sour-tasting tomato that is best for cooking uses and canning. Determinate, bush plants set bright red, small to medium sized fruit. From Aziz Nail, an Iraqi friend of Baker Creek who supplied seeds.
