Azoychka Tomato is a Russian heirloom beefsteak that is early ripening and high yielding producing up to 50 tomatoes per plant. The fruits weigh 150 to 400 grams, are meaty and yellowish to orange in colour. In addition to its earliness and productivity, its flavour is slightly acidic with a fruity tang.

A non-commercial Russian variety bred by Valentina Petrovna Kruglova. Has produced 30 fruit by mid February in my hoothouse with more coming. Indeterminate Regular Leaf.

  • The wild ancestor of the tomato is native to western South America. These wild versions were the size of peas. Aztecs and other peoples in Mesoamerica were the first to have domesticated the fruit and used in their cooking.
  • The Spanish first introduced tomatoes to Europe, where they became used in Spanish food.
  • In France, Italy and northern Europe, the tomato was initially grown as an ornamental plant. It was regarded with suspicion as a food because botanists recognized it as a nightshade, a relative of the poisonous belladonna.
  • This was exacerbated by the interaction of the tomato’s acidic juice with pewter plates.
  • The leaves and immature fruit contains tomatine, which in large quantities would be toxic. However, the ripe fruit contains no tomatine
