You simply will not believe the wonderful flavor of this tomato! Named after Brandywine Creek in Chester County, PA, it is an old heirloom dating back to 1889 and passed down from generation to generation. Brandywine is a pinkish/red beefsteak type with thin-skinned, rich-flavored, 3/4 to 1 lb. fruits. Provide support for vines that reach 6 feet or more.

This packet yields approximately 24 plants when started indoors.

When to sow outside: Recommended for mild winter climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 60°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when fully colored and firm. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of green tomatoes near the end of the season, and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
