Details

A pink, potato-leaf, Amish variety from 1885 named after Brandywine Creek in Chester County, Pennsylvania. It is probably the first heirloom to achieve "cult status" within the growing popularity of heirloom tomatoes and for good reason. Everyone who tastes it is enchanted by its superb flavor. Brandywine is perfect for salads, slicing and canning. Fruits average 12 oz. in weight but can grow to 2 lbs.

Michigan Seeds grown on our farm Renegade Acres in Howell, MI!
