Brandywine

$6.00

90 Days  (Indeterminate)

A pink, potato-leaf, Amish variety from the 1880s. The brandywine is probably the first heirloom to achieve “cult status” within heirloom tomatoes. In tomato tastings, chefs and tomato lovers alike have always placed it as one of their top three favorites. It is legendary for its exceptionally rich, succulent tomato flavor. Fruits are reddish-pink, with a light, creamy flesh that average 12 ounces but can grow to 2 pounds.

These tomato starts will be in 4” pots and will be available for local pickup in mid to late May.
