General Information: Easy-to-care-for prolific plants provide more fruit longer.
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.
Idea & Tips: Water thoroughly twice per week, and try to water early in the day so that plants will dry off before evening.
Tomatoes prefer regular feeding once the fruit sets, but too much early in the season will grow a large plant with fewer tomatoes.
Mulching helps ensure an even supply of moisture.
