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.

Prolific cropper and looks good in a mixed tomato salad.
Sunday, 30 August 2020  |  Lynne

Dark purple cherry tomato, I grow one plant every year because it looks so good in a mixed tomato salad. The flavour isnít anything to write home about and later in the season the skin seems to split easily, however itís a heavy cropper and I will continue to grow it for its looks if not flavour.
