Tomato: Brandywine

$5.99

SKU: TOMATO-Brandywine

A pink, potato-leaf, Amish variety from the 1880’s named after Brandywine Creek in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Brandywine is a tomato that found its way into the Seed Savers Exchange collection in 1982. It is probably the first heirloom to achieve "cult status" within the growing popularity of heirloom tomatoes. Fruits are reddish-pink, with light, creamy flesh that average 12 ounces but can grow to 2 pounds. It is by far the best known of all heirlooms and for good reason. Everyone who tastes it is enchanted by its superb flavor. The fruits have a very large beefsteak shape and grow on unusually upright, potato-leaved plants. The fruits set one or two per cluster and ripen late. At summer's end, Brandywine's qualities really shine when it develops an incredible fine, sweet flavor.  Indeterminate
