Let $V_i$ be a finite dimensional vector space over a field $F$ for each $i = 1, 2, \ldots, m$, and let $z$ be a tensor in $V_1 \otimes \cdots \otimes V_m$. In this paper a set of homogeneous quadratic polynomials in the coordinates of $z$ is exhibited for which the associated variety is the set of decomposable tensors. In addition, a question concerning the maximal tensor rank in such a situation is answered, and an application to other symmetry classes of tensors is cited.
