Rocket Man

Opalka's Red Glare

We just love Opalka‘s funky, rocket-like shape.  Introduced in the United States in the early 1900s, this vivid red Polish variety is a meaty tomato with a rich, sweet flavor.  It makes quite a stir in any salad or salsa, but, with very few seeds, the Opalka is especially good in sauces.

We’ve found that the Opalka is more prolific and tasty than our favorite Roma tomato, so the Opalka will be making a return appearance in next year’s plot.

    You guys never cease to amaze us! Can’t wait to see what you bring tomorrow.

    I’m with you totally on the opalkas…I’m not planting romas next year…just a whole bed of opalkas…less BER, fewer fungal problems, and they are just fun to grow!
