IMPRESSIVE ON ALL LEVELS !

 

I am continuely impressed with how many fruits are produced, the overall vigor and health of the plant and of course, the flavor -- all summer long.

 

The fruits are relatively large, globe to oblate shaped, and offer an excellent, complex, full flavor. With intense sunlight, fruits will take on noticeably green streaked shoulders, as is seen in the photo.


HISTORY: Most likely a stabilized descendent of the original cross found in 1996 by a seed producer in Northern California who identified a sport in their fields which they believed was a cross between 'Brandywine' and 'Black Krim'. They named the variety 'Black Brandywine' and introduced it into the commercial seed trade. Seeminly, it wasn't completely stable when it was released as many growers found offspring which were both regular and potato-leaved. Some years later, Williams Woys Weaver, released his stable variant under the name of 'True Black Brandywine', to add to the confusion. 

My original seed source came from a friend and follow grower Daphne, owner of Dap's Seeds, who lives in Nieuwegein,  Netherlands. She acquired her seed from a grower in Europe. Don't be afraid to purchase seeds from her, either! She's fluent in English and has lots of great varieties available!
