Product Description
This heirloom type has good, "old time" tomato flavor. Brandywine is an Amish variety that has been around since 1885 and is the standard for flavor for most tomato growers! It yields large, 1 to 1 ½-lb. boat-shaped beefsteak fruits with pink-red color and a rich, creamy aftertaste. Blooms, sets fruit and ripens until killed by frost. Indeterminate. 90 days to maturity.
