Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Al-Kuffa - sliced fruit. 2012-08-31.


Compact indeterminate dwarf (tree-type) plants with rugose regular foliage, very early fruit set. It gave me the first ripe tomato in 2012 among all the 'earlies', despite the record cold and rainy June. Small red globes about 1-2 oz with very nice balanced flavor. Plants grow very well in 3-5 gallon pots and are well suited for container cultivation. Moderately productive. It will certainly be back in my garden as one of the early tomatoes for containers. (20 seeds / packet)
