Azoychka

Azoychka

Description

Tomato Azoychka is a very productive yellow beefsteak tomato growing on strong, regular leafed, indeterminate plants. 2012 was the first year we grew this tomato and, despite the appalling season, it cropped well in our polytunnel producing 20-30 fruit which weighed between 4 and 14 ounces each. The plants grew to the top of the polytunnel when we stopped them with four trusses. The meaty yellow fruit (which further ripen to a pale orange) have a citrus flavour (not unlike Limmony) and, unlike many yellow tomatoes, Azoychka maintains the acidic "tomatoey" taste without the "mealy" taste and texture that some can suffer from. Unlike many beefsteak tomatoes, Azoychka has a regular internal structure which means that it has slightly less flesh and more juice than many similar beefsteak tomatoes.

It has a long (slightly late) cropping season, in 2012 we first cropped this in early September and were still picking fruit in mid-late October. (Note that 2012 was a late year for tomatoes with most varieties cropping three weeks later than other years so we could expect Azoychka to crop in late August in a normal year).

The fruit also seem to keep quite well once picked and late green tomatoes do ripen if left in a dark place.

Excellent for slicing and cooking.
