If this tomato had a mantra, it would be "go big or go home!" A top-rated tomato since the late 1800s, the Brandywine variety is one of the largest you can grow, producing fruits as big as 7 inches in diameter and weighing up to 2 pounds. Meaty, juicy, and very sweet. Stake upright for biggest fruits. 75-95 days.
Plant Information
One of the most famous of the heirloom tomatoes, Brandywine is an Amish variety that was introduced in 1885. It comes from the collection of the late Ben Quisenberry, who collected hundreds of tomato strains from 1910 to the 1960s. The vine-like plants can be left to grow on the ground, producing higher yields of smaller tomatoes and eliminating the need to prune. However, the preferred growing method is to support the vines with staking, enabling them to climb upward and produce much larger fruits. And these tomatoes do get large (up to 7 inches in diameter and 1.5 pounds apiece!), so be sure your staking structure is of ample size and sturdiness to support the fruits' weight. Brandywine tomatoes grow in clusters of 1-2, each tomato becoming a beautiful, reddish pink color with ribbing that's very slight. They're very meaty, juicy, beefsteak fruits with a deliciously sweet flavor. Like all tomatoes, Brandywine tomatoes are filled with a variety of healthy nutrients, most notably lycopene. Tomatoes have the highest concentration of this potent antioxidant, which has been found to aid in the prevention and treatment of cancer, promote cardiovascular health, and help maintain healthy eyes.
