A very productive Russian heirloom found at the Bird Market in Moscow. (“Azoychka” is a woman’s name.) An indeterminate, open-pollinated, regular-leaf tomato plant that produces an abundant crop (40-50 tomatoes per plant) of smooth, 3-inch, 10-16 oz., slightly flattened oblate, meaty, yellow/orange tomatoes with a luscious sweet citrusy flavor. Azoychka has become a favorite in many gardens for harvesting a crop for market. Dependably productive, delicious and deservedly in demand. Unlike most yellow tomatoes, this variety has a good acidic balance to its fruity sweetness resulting in lots of robust, complex flavors. A great variety suited to coastal and both warm to cooler growing regions. Produces well into the season. Great for eating in salads, sliced into a sandwich, cooking in sauces or canning. Rare tomato seeds.
