Large vines need caging or staking, 70 days, medium nearly round red fruit, very good full flavor. I have observed some early production, then a lull of about two weeks, then very reliable production for an extended period.

The large indeterminate regular leaved plants took seventy-nine days to produce. The fruit are bright red and range from half a pound to a pound and a half. They are rounder than most beefsteak tomatoes, but their flavor is great, no aftertaste, and the taste is a sweeter version of Stupice. This variety produces easily throughout the season, but is prone to cracking, so keep the watering to a minimum when the fruits start to form.

History

  • Said to be named after the Brandywine River in eastern Pennsylvania.
  • According to Carolyn Male, Tom Hauch at Heirloom Seeds in Pennsylvania was the first to get Red Brandywine out of the SSE Yearbook and offer it commercially. He sent seeds to Steve Miller at the Landis Museum in PA which features Amish varieties. Red Brandywine is the only one of the brandywines to have a documented Amish history and that's the one that Steve got when he followed up on the background.
  • A few commercial seed vendors mistakenly offered a potato leafed version of Red Brandywine in the early 2000s. The authentic Red Brandywine has regular leaf foliage.
  • Tomato Growers Supply continues to offer potato-leafed Red Brandywine, as Linda Sapp, the owner, believes that her customers like it and will miss it if it is removed from the TGS catalog.
