Ok since I have mentioned this tomato often I was wondering if anyone here has grown it.To me it is in the dwarf size and very productive. I got mine out late last year but still had an abundance of fruit the size of I would say a Campari. Flavor was outstanding and despite the cool wet summer we had very little cracking. A very good tomato for folks with limited space. Anyone out there to share their experience on this one ?

I got them from Baker Creek. They are the only commercial source I know of. They sold out this year.

Seems like after selling out of Al Kuffa two years running, they'd contract to grow a sufficient supply.

Yes you would. Especially if they are in the business of selling seed!

That is one of the things I wanted to do this year.I planted about five seeds someone sent me. But they have not come up yet. If I do get some plants going and have a good yield like last year you can bet I will do my best to save seeds.I would really like to see this variety gain in popularity. I think folks would really enjoy it.
