What are the pros? fantastic size and taste

What are the cons? none

Review:

this was the BEST tomato I have eaten in a very long time. The size of the fruit was massive and yet so juicy and full of flavor. We have BLT where the slice would hand over the but toast. The family loved them and could not get enough. It was my first "pink" variety and I had to get use to when to pick them. At first kept thinking it would get darker before picking. Just fantastic tomato. I had little to know blight or fungus issues with these I am growing them again this year

What are the pros? Taste is wonderful.

What are the cons? Uneven ripening, prod.,disease

Review:

UNEVEN RIPENING. Brandywine is a fabulous taste. That is, the part of each fruit that is ripe. The different lobes of each fruit ripen at different rates. You have the choice of picking a fruit when it is half ripe/half green or you can wait until the rest ripens and you have a fruit that is half rotten/half ripe. This uneven ripening put Brandywine on my "never grow again" ****list. EXTREMELY LOW PRODUCTION. While other cultivars are pruducing bushels, Brandywine only puts out a few fruit per plant: about 5% as much weight in fruit as equally tasty cultivars grown in the same row in identical conditions. VERY PRONE TO DISEASE: If there is any disease around, Brandywine is sure to get it. ------------- I am an extremely dedicated tomato grower, fussing over my plants as my babies. I have known " back yard" gardeners who planted Brandywine and expected it to care for itself like Early Girl. They don't even get a single half-ripe fruit per plant.

Best tasting tomato

What are the pros? Flavor, size. And flavor

What are the cons? Susceptible to disease

Review:

I try to find tomatoes that taste better, but none compare to pink brandywine for me. They aren't overly productive, usually a dozen to perhaps 15 per plant, but half of them will weigh a pound or more. They are more susceptible than most other heirlooms to wilt and the blight can be tough if you're into raised beds, but I grow them every year. I pinch most of my my tomatoes to a single stalk, but with pink brandywine I will let the foliage go a little to support the plant if it wilts. It makes for a longer season. Rotate the location as much as possible They are as good as their reputation.

Great for Marinara
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Sweet and low acid

What are the cons? Slow to mature

Review:

I used to live on a large farm where we dedicated an acre just to growing tomatoes. We must have grown every heirloom variety out there but we always agreed that the best tasting was Brandywine. Amish paste was our favorite plum. Mixing the two makes the most amazing marinara sauce we (Italians) have ever had. Saut? an onion and garlic in olive oil, add the peel ground tomatoes and fast cook on med (stirring very frequently so it doesn't burn) in a frying pan for about 15 minutes. Turn off heat, add chopped basil. That's it. Put over your favorite pasta and top with cheese. I guarantee that this will be the best tasting sauce you'll ever have in your life. We could eat it everyday. Brandwines are also delicious eaten sliced, or as a tomato sandwich. We call them the Queen of the Heirlooms. Give them a try and see what you're been missing.

One of the best tomatoes

What are the pros? Taste is perfect

What are the cons? None

Review:

For anyone looking to get into heirloom tomatoes this is the first I would recommend. Some of the best tasting tomatoes I've ever had, and not hard to grow. The tomatoes can get really huge and the plants need to be staked. Well worth having a garden just for these.
