Tomato Black Opal is a dark chocolate coloured cherry tomato that was bred from the popular heritage variety 'Black Cherry'.
Black Opal has an improved growth habit, firmer texture and much better flavour recording a brix value of 9 compared to the 7 of the older variety. The small sized fruits when mature weigh about 20 grams, and each plant should average between 150 - 200 fruits if correctly looked after.
This traditional indeterminate tomato can be grown staked or caned in an unheated greenhouse or outside. Black Opal shows good general disease resisatnce and shows better resistance to late blight compared to other cherry fruiting varieties.
Harvesting time will depend on sowing time and growing conditions. Highly Recommended.
