- The Brandywine tomato is legendary for its delicious taste and the Sudduth’s Strain is considered by many to be the most delicious strain available. This particular strain was obtained in 1980 from Dorris (?) Sudduth Hill. Ms. Sudduth said that it had been in her family for 80 years. The large deep pink beefsteak fruit can grow 1-2 pounds and are quite late maturing. (Start indoors early.) It is simply an exceptional tomato that no gardener should be without! This strain is rather hard to find although Brandywine is quite common. Indeterminate, potato leaf foliage. A must have! (90 days from transplant) .

- Also known as Quisenberry’s Brandywine. Ken Ettlinger got the original seed from Ben Quisenberry and was told years later that it was called Brandywine, Sudduth strain. The plant has had some variability over the years due to different seed savers. This Brandywine is probably the best Brandywine we grow due to the great taste.

- Collected by Ben Quisenberry in the early 1980s from Dorothy Sudduth Hill of Tennessee whose family had grown it for nearly a century.
- A tomato named "Brandywine" was introduced by Johnson and Stokes in 1889; woodcuts of the variety in catalogs indicate that their release was regular leaf, and it has been seen listed as a "red" tomato. It is a possibility that Johnson and Stokes' "Brandywine" is actually the tomato known as "Red Brandywine". More research is needed on this.
- Variety recommended by OSU for growing in PNW areas.
