Opalka Tomato

75 day.  This is a very meaty, almost dry paste tomato.  It is very low in seeds and is a great choice for sauce.  I found it wasn't as good of a choice for roasted salsa because the skins didn't separate from the flesh very easily when it was roasted.

 

Minimum of 25 seeds per packet.

  1. Love love love these!

    Posted by Terry on 28th Jul 2012

    Opalkas - or Opies as I affectionaltely call them - are awesome. They are pretty large paste tomatoes and are a staple in our sauce making, with hardly any seeds to speak of. I wish we had planted more - we will definitely be dedicating more space to this variety next year! The skins weren't too difficult to remove after a ~30 soak in boiling water followed by a ~2 min plunge in ice water. If you're on the fence about these - give 'em a try, you won't be disappointed!


  2. Opalkas rock!

    I have been growing Opalkas for about 10 yrs. I use them to make sauce. The skins peel off very easily without the trouble of blanching them. I loe them!
