These "cold climate" tomatoes are tomato varieties that are better suited to colder growing climates. Many of these tomato varieties originate from the cooler growing areas in Russia and other northern growing areas. Many of these tomato varieties can flourish within these cooler weather conditions regardless of whether they are early, mid-season or late maturing varieties, but most are early maturing tomato varieties suited for shorter growing seasons.

Remember that tomatoes need sufficient heat and light to mature into ripe, flavorful fruits. Starting tomatoes indoors and use of other season extenders (caps, row covers, etc.) may be necessary to maximize the quality and quantity of your harvest. With the use of season extenders a majority of the other tomato varieties offered by TomatoFest can grow well in cooler climates. For example, we supply many warm and hot weather varieties to our gardening friends in Canada.

A very productive Russian heirloom found at the Bird Market in Moscow. ("Azoychka" is a woman's name.). An indeterminate, open-pollinated. regular-leaf tomato plant that produces an abundant crop (40-50 tomatoes per plant) of smooth, 3-inch, 10-16 oz., slightly flattened oblate, meaty, yellow/orange tomatoes with a luscious sweet citrusy flavor. Azoychka has become one of the favorite in my garden for harvesting a crop for market. Dependably productive, delicious and deservedly in demand. Unlike most yellow tomatoes this variety has a good acidic balance to it’s fruity sweetness resulting in lots of robust, complex flavors. A great variety suited to coastal and both warm to cooler growing regions. Produces well into the season. Great for eating in salads, sliced into a sandwich, cooking in sauces or canning. 68-78 days to maturity. Rare tomato seeds.  TomatoFest is probably one of only a few commercial sources for this tomato seed.
