Brandywine, which dates back to 1885, is the heirloom tomato standard.
One taste and you’ll be enchanted by its superb flavor and luscious shade of red-pink.
The large, beefsteak-shaped fruits grow on unusually upright, potato-leaved plants.
The fruits set one or two per cluster and ripen late – and are worth the wait.
Brandywine’s qualities really shine when it develops an incredible fine, sweet flavor.
