Hefty beef steak type fruits that have the deep color and amazing flavor of “black” tomatoes…
80 to 90 days, Indeterminate, Heirloom, Potato Leaf. With “Brandywine” in it’s name you know it’s gotta be good! Generous fruit size, deep red/brown/purple color, and that very rich, sweet, smoky flavor that black tomatoes are known for. The vines get large and produce quite abundantly for such a large tomato. Does well in hot and muggy Southern Missouri. There is a tendency to crack. Like with all large heirloom tomatoes, it is best to prune lightly, if at all, so leaf cover will keep sun off the fruits. This is the heirloom Black Brandywine that was bred in the 1920’s by Dr. Harold Martin and handed down by William Woys Weaver.
