Commercially introduced by us

Phonetically pronounced: kuh-peck high-ya-suh

This is an old Turkish heirloom from Alakır Basin of Western Taurus Region, Turkey. Once widely grown in the region, Köpek Hayası almost became extinct until, in early 2000’s, Birhan Erkutlu and Tuba Günal recovered its seeds from an eco-village in France.

Large, meaty fruits have excellent flavor and develop dark green shoulders which eventually fades into red as the fruits ripen. Plants are prolific and many fruits weigh around 1 lb. This is a multi-purpose, mid-season variety for eating off the vine, canning, and making sauces and paste.

Seeds for Köpek Hayası were originally sent to us by Volkan Yalazay, an olive farmer from Çanakkale, Turkey.

Packet has 20 seeds

    Nice, meaty, large tomato with great flavor. Did not produce a ton of fruit here in Pennsylvania, but I saved seed and am growing it again, so… yeah: It’s a good one!

      Planted seeds on a Monday and we’re coming up by Thursday. ALL the seeds I planted have sprouted into sturdy little plants. Looking forward to fruit production and how many tomatoes we will be getting.
