When to Sow Black Opal Tomatoes

January to April

Where to Sow

Sow the seeds underglass 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays with a good seed sowing compost and lightly cover over with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C. Seedlings should appear within 7-10 days.

What to do next

Prick out seedlings once big enough to handle, into 9cm pots. When the plants have reached 20cm tall, they can be planted into their final position. They can be planted into growbags, with 3 plants in each. If planting outside, harden off beforehand once all risk of frost has passed. Tomato plants generally grow earlier and bigger in a greenhouse because they prefer the warmth. Water and feed the plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.
As Black Opal tomatoes are a cordon variety, they will need supporting with canes or with wire and string.

Maturity

July to October

Handy Tip

Pick fruits as they ripen and water regularly, but do not over water to help prevent the fruits from splitting.

High in vitamin C and lycopene.
