The Opalka (Solanum lycopersicum) Polish variety tomato is vigorous, with vines that produce excellent yields of large paste-type tomatoes. These fruit have an unusual shape, which often catches the attention of visitors and double-blossomed flowers sometimes produce tomatoes with an almost cartoon-like appearance. Besides being fun to look at, Opalka tomatoes are coreless, few-seeded, and larger than most other paste-types, making them a breeze to process. I just take a thin slice off the end to remove the stem scar, halve the remainder and feed into my sauce maker. Very little work and very little waste. 85 days to harvest.
Grown in Tennessee.
