late, indet., pear shaped yellow tomato, thick flesh, I knew that I have seeded this tomato but then there was an error by the writing at the label, so I wondered in late summer – what a surprise and joy with this wonderful tomato

  • Russian commercial variety 'Lampa Aladdina' (a.k.a. 'Grusha Oranzhevaya'). Unfortunately, the name got translated into other languages when seeds were sent from Russia to other countries, and it is now known as Aladdin's Lamp in America.
  • 'Aladdin' is an Arabic (originally Syrian) name, which means "nobility of the faith". Aladdin is a hero of the famous Arabian tale, "One Thousand and One Nights".
  • First offered in the Seed Savers 2007Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio (OH AN A) Yearbook by {{{2}}}, who obtained the seed from Gary Millwood of Louisville, Kentucky.

Russian name: Лампа Аладдина

The name means 'Aladdin's Lamp' in Russian, hence the name of this tomato.
