Topaz tomato is a heavy producer of 1-3 ounce fruits that are yellow with green and gold speckles.My mom enjoys selling this unique tomato at the farmers market. The fruits are crack-resistant and pretty as can be.
The skin is a bit tough (that would explain its crack resistance), and the texture is on the mushy side. However, the flavor is pleasant, mildly sweet and tangy. When the fruits are fully ripe, they develop a fascinating translucent look.
Tomato 'Topaz' comes from China, where it is called Huan U. Try it with its companion, Violet Jasper.
Sowing Topaz Tomato Seeds:
Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date, 1/8" deep. Transplant tomato plants outside when danger of frost is past. Full sun. Spacing 2-3'.
