HEIRLOOM Extremely productive. Good ‘old time’ tomato flavor. Open pollinated, heirloom variety. Amish variety heralded for best taste since 1885! HEIRLOOMBrandywine, which dates back to 1885, is the heirloom tomato standard. One taste and you’ll be enchanted by its superb flavor and luscious shade of red-pink. The large, beefsteak-shaped fruits grow on unusually upright, potato-leaved plants. The fruits set one or two per cluster and ripen late-and are worth the wait. Brandywine’s qualities really shine when it develops an incredible fine, sweet flavor.
