Brandywine Tomato

90 days. The flesh of this extraordinary variety is the color of a ripe, red Watermelon. Exceptionally rich-tasting with just a hint of spice, the slightly flattened fruits grow to 6" to 7" in diameter. Brandywine is borne on large, indeterminate plants with strongly aromatic leaves resembling foliage - it is, in fact, a potato-leaf type. The sturdy vines require support, as each Tomato can grow to one pound in size - not a good variety for containers! Brandywine is an authentic Amish heirloom variety and we know you'll be astonished by the taste: like sweet ambrosia, fit for the gods. (OP.)

Absolutely nothing compares to eating a sun-warmed, homegrown Tomato straight off the vine. This garden mainstay is easily grown and most rewarding. Start seed in a warm, bright, well-ventilated area six to eight weeks before setting out. Transplant out after the last spring frost date. To encourage stockiness, sink seedlings deeper into the well-enriched soil than you grew them - soil should cover the lowest layer of leaves. Position stakes, cages or supports at that time to avoid disturbing the plants later on. Keep soil evenly moist and well-fertilized. Once harvested, store Tomatoes at room temperature, as anything below 50°F destroys the enzyme that gives Tomatoes their flavor. When a variety is said to have determinate vines, it means that the vines top out and all of the fruit ripens at once. When a variety is said to have indeterminate vines, it means that the vines keep growing and bearing fruit until a killing frost. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 2 years.
