Brandywine, which dates back to 1885, is probably the first heirloom tomato to achieve “rock star” status. One taste of its superb flavor and you’ll understand why. It is also the tomato that has broken the most gardener’s hearts because of a tendency to be stingy with fruit and susceptibility to diseases. Grafted onto the Mighty ‘Mato rootstock, these problems simply disappear. You’ll harvest many large, beefsteak-shaped fruits on upright, potato-leaved plants.
This particular strain was obtained by from Dorris Sudduth Hill whose family grew it for over 100 years and produces large, pink beefsteak-type fruits to 2 pounds. Incredibly rich, delightfully intense tomato flavor. Indeterminate. 85 days.
