Growing Azoychka tomatoes is a good choice for any gardener who prizes all the different varieties of tomatoes. These are productive, reliable plants that will give you tasty, gold tomatoes.
Azoychka Tomato Information
Azoychka beefsteak tomatoes are heirlooms from Russia. They plants are regular-leaf, indeterminate, and open pollinated. They produce abundantly, up to 50 tomatoes per plant and are early producers, often done before the first frost.
The tomatoes are yellow, round but slightly flattened, and grow to about 10 to 16 ounces (283 to 452 grams). Azoyhka tomatoes have a sweet, citrus-like flavor that is well-balanced with acidity.
How to Grow an Azoychka Tomato Plant
If you manage to get some seeds for this heirloom tomato, growing it in your garden will be very rewarding. It is an easy tomato to grow because it is reliably productive. Even in a season when other tomato plants struggle, the Azoychka is usually just fine.
Azoychka tomato care is much like how you would care for your other tomato plants. Find a spot in the garden with plenty of sun, give it rich soil, and water it regularly. Stake or use a tomato cage to let your plant grow tall and stay stable, with fruits off the ground. Compost in the soil is a good idea, but you can use fertilizer instead if you don’t have any.
Use mulch to help with water retention, to prevent splash back that can cause disease, and to keep weeds down around the tomatoes.
The Azoychka plant will grow to about four feet (1.2 meters) tall. Space multiple plants about 24 to 36 inches (60 to 90 cm.) apart. Like other heirlooms, these tend to have natural resistance to diseases, but it is still important to watch out for early signs of any infections or pests.
Azoychka is a fun heirloom to try, but it isn’t common. Look for seeds at exchanges or search online for them.

The sun is shining, the garden is growing, and the temperatures are rising. It is summer time again. This is a great time of year.
But not just because of all of the canning and preserving that goes on during this time.
For me, it is because of all of the fresh tomatoes that hang on the vine waiting to be preserved, eaten, or turned into the best tomato sandwich (which is a personal favorite of mine.)
However, in order to grow enough tomatoes to fulfill everything you want to do with them, you need to be aware of the best varieties to grow.
So that is where this post comes in. I’m going to share with you some of the best tomato varieties that will hopefully help you to boost your tomato harvest this year.
These unique Beefsteaks have a variety of colors on a single tomato. They are sure to stand out amongst others!
Tomatoes are not at all hardy and need warm weather to grow well. They can't stand any frost.
Tomatoes are warm-season plants and should be planted only after danger of frost has passed. Temperature is an important factor in the production of tomatoes, which are particularly sensitive to low night temperatures.
If you have a very long growing season you can direct sow them outside.
It is important that the soil be sufficiently warm (60° F minimum) for planting Tomatoes. If it is too cold they will simply sit there without growing and may even be permanently retarded.
Full sun. Tomatoes need a warm sheltered site and a minimum of 6 hours of sun daily. Any less and they won’t produce very well.
These deep-rooted plants are quite drought tolerant and don't really need a lot of water once they are established. In fact, keeping them dry encourages strong root growth. However you will get more and larger fruit if you keep the soil evenly moist once they start flowering and bearing fruit.
Drip irrigation works well with tomatoes, as it keeps the soil evenly moist but the plants stay dry.
Uneven watering may cause Blossom End Rot or cracking.
High nitrogen. Moderate phosphorus. High potassium. Tomatoes are quite heavy feeders. They have deep roots that may go down 5', but most of their feeder roots are in the top 2'.
Tomatoes can be quite successful when grown in containers. Your container should be fairly large, at least 24-48" deep and 18-36" in diameter for most varieties. Tomatoes have somewhat deep roots and larger pots will give them the room they need to grow and gather nutrients. Plants in containers will need to be watered more frequently than plants in the ground or even in raised beds, as sun on the pot will heat the soil causing the moisture to evaporate more rapidly. Water them regularly, but do not to let them sit in water. It is crucial that your container drains well, as you want to avoid rotting the roots. Selecting a container with drainage holes and then lining the bottom with rocks or gravel can help keep your tomatoes properly drained. Use a fertile soil mix and water regularly. Tomatoes are heavy feeders, so it is best to fertilize regularly with fish emulsion or seaweed extract. You can do this once a month or every other week at half strength. A smaller pot will require even more frequent watering and feeding. Be sure to provide access to full sun, as tomatoes are a heat-loving plant. Your beefsteak tomatoes probably won't mature to the same size as those planted in the ground. The plant will still get large, and will need adequate support. Put your containers near a fence or plan on having a structure for them to grow on.
