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.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call.
