This is by far the best known of all beefsteak heirloom tomatoes. Fruits set one or two per cluster averaging between 3/4 - one pound, on vigorous upright plants. These are not overyly productive in the first half of the season back quickly catch up when the summer heat sets in. Dark pink beefsteaks with mild old-fashioned flavor.


HISTORY:  It is believed that the Brandywine is an Amish heirloom variety from the USA dating back to 1885. I purchased my seed from a man who lives in Pittsburg, PA. He stated that he received his original seed from a friend 37 years ago and has been saving its seed ever since. In 2012, I trialed five different strains of Brandywine side-by-side, searching for the best. The one I offer here was superior in all ways to the others.
