Opalka Paste Tomato Certified Organic Heirloom
Opalka Paste Tomato Certified Organic
(82 days) Open-pollinated. Indeterminate. Its third time in our taste test proved the charm for Opalka. Our tasters have commented, “an oasis of flavor in a desert of tomato hell,” “a pleasing texture and good aftertaste lingers,” “round and mellow flavor…full-bodied.” Expect copious yields of 3x5" massive solid bull’s horn–shaped red fruits with dry texture and few seeds. This is the largest paste tomato I have ever grown and runs close in size to Polish Linguista. Also dries well. While some tomatoes falter during hot dry spells, Opalka produces consistently. The crinkly foliage is normal and not an indication of plant disease. Polish heirloom brought by the Opalka family to Amsterdam, NY, around 1900. Approximately 100 seed per pack.
