The Classic Heirloom -- Big, Deeply Lobed Purplish Fruit!
Indeterminate vines bear heavily over a long season.
80 days from setting out transplants. Indeterminate. This is an heirloom that really looks like it was developed and grown long ago. Bearing little resemblance to bland, smooth, evenly red modern hybrids, Brandywine startles with big fruit of purplish-red, deeply lobed and not at all "uniform"! And the flavor. All the better, of course!
Brandywine is a favorite among connoisseurs of classic tomatoes. The plants are indeterminate, for good yields over a long season. The fruit is surprisingly large -- 12 ounces or more -- and no two will look exactly alike. Attention-getting, distinctive, and tried-and-true, Brandywine is truly a classic!
Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart
