Description
Red Brandywine Certified Naturally Grown Seed
80 to 100 days, indeterminate — It is by far one of the best known heirloom tomato varieties. There is a lot of lore surrounding the 'Brandywine' category of tomatoes.

Reportedly it is an old Amish heirloom, dating back to 1885 and named after Brandywine Creek in Chester County, Pennsylvania.

The disease tolerant, regular leaf plants yield fruits that are red, globe to oblate shaped, and full of flavor. Our parent stock is from heirloom tomato collector Craig LeHoullier who got the seed from Landis Valley in the early 1990s.  Click here for more Brandywine history. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

A mixed bag...
These are tasty tomatoes, but can be difficult to grow. The first one or two turn out quite huge and if you don't have even water conditions, they can end up pretty cat-faced (cracked near the stem end). This part is easily cut off and you still have a HUGE fruit to use. My husband loves them for sandwiches. The fruits are smaller and nicer looking as the season goes on.

Nice tomatoes
This plant produces lots of tasty tomatoes that are nice and round with a smooth skin. The tomatoes are a little more than 2 inches in diameter. The only drawback for me (not for everyone) is that the plant grows, and grows, and grows! It is definitely a big vine and you must make lots of room for it so the branches don't smother each other and can let air flow through. If I had a bigger garden I would plant many more of these.
