“Kurdish Red Cherry” is a variety that you might not find in the seed catalogs. This is an heirloom with a story, and my seeds came from the person telling the story, who is a wonderful friend and member of our gardening forum. Let me share this with you:
“The story is as such. In a pizzeria where I live, I met a worker there about 10 years ago (he still works there) and talked about life in general with him each time I visited. But, we talked about something very important and that was growing tomatoes. This man came to Canada from Kurdistan about 20 years ago with a group of people. One in the group brought back tomato seeds from their country and they have been growing these tomatoes here ever since. I was fortunate enough to obtain seeds from my friend and I will be growing them this year.”
The photo of the dried fruit with seeds shows how my friend received the seeds he first grew. This is his photo, and I love it as it shows just how we who are crazy to grow tomatoes can manage to get seeds in so many ways. My friend shared seeds with many members of our forum, and those who grew it all spoke highly of the flavor and productivity. Kurdish Red Cherry produces well in the heat, and is crazily productive in temperate weather. In my own garden it did not like the constant rain and nightly 100% humidity this season, but I do plan to grow it again next season and increase the seed count in my packets. Lovely shiny red cherries, strong fine flavor, and easy to grow…recommended!
