Tomato, Azoychka (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum.Yellow. 65-70 days. Indet.
Earlier than most other beefsteak types, this gorgeous, 3-5″ round oblate, 6-12 oz, yellow beefsteak comes on strong in those seasons when many other tomatoes struggle to ripen. In addition to its earliness and productivity, its impressive delicious flavor is much better than other yellow tomatoes, with a slightly acidic and fruity tang. Azoychka wins our informal ‘tomato of the year’ award regularly. Though indeterminate, production does taper off. A non-commercial Russian variety bred by Valentina Petrovna Kruglova. Brought to North America by Kent Whealey of the Seed Savers Exchange in the early 1990s. Aka, Zolotoy Borago.
