Indeterminate. The is easily the earliest and most productive yellow beefsteak-type tomato we’ve grown, producing loads of 6-10oz fruits. Tomatoes are slightly flat (oblate) and bright yellow with a hue or orange on the bottom. Azoychka ranked high in our 2018 taste tests, blending sweetness with a touch of acidity and tang. Growth does taper down mid-season as other tomatoes are just getting going. Brought from Russia to North America via Seed Savers Exchange in the early 1990s.
