History

  • Heirloom tomato, an unknown strain of Brandywine, introduced to SSE in 1982. It was intentionally used as a parent in many tomato breeding projects - see Dora, Marizol Bratka or Purple Brandy. It was also one of the parents in a few accidental crosses such as Little Lucky, Little Lucky Heart.
  • This variety was mentioned in the 188? Johnson and Stokes Catalog:
"The Brandywine, or No.45 Tomato.
Two years ago a customer in Ohio sent us a small package of tomato seed, requesting us to give it a fair test on our trial grounds. A few plants were set out along with forty-five other varieties, we were testing, both new and old; this being the last on the list, was numbered 45. To our astonishment, it completely eclipsed, in great size and beauty, all other varieties we were testing, several specimens when ripe weighing over three pounds each, as smooth as an apple and remarkably solid. To still further test this tomato, we sent a few packets to tomato specialists, requesting them to report on its merits. The name given it was suggested by our friend, Thos. H. Brinton, of Chadd's Ford, Pa., who has probably grown and tested more varieties of tomatoes than any other person in the United States, who wrote September 25th, 1888: "The more I see of the Tomato No.45, the more I am pleased with it. It is certainly a magnificent new and distinct variety, and worthy of the name of Brandywine, after that most beautiful of all streams, which flows near our Quaker village. It is also spoken of in the highest terms by all to whom I gave a few plants for trial."
The have not illustrated this new tomato, as had we given it a larger notice, we are afraid we would not have had half enough seed to go around.
With two such handsome varieties as the 'Atlantic Prize' for early, and the 'Brandywine' for late, no garden could fail to give a bountiful supply of delicious tomatoes the entire season."
