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.

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.

What are the pros? Giant tasty tomatoes

What are the cons? They are kinda deformed.

Review:

I don't care about the deformity, it's the only think I can think of that is a con. I planted in the low desert, along with beefsteak and cherry toms around Feb 1st. I had my first fruit ripen around Cinco De Mayo. I've had several since and they are very juicy, and tasty.

What are the pros? Candy... tomato candy

What are the cons? cracking

Review:

These take a little care, they are a LARGE plant and need fence posts or serious caging. They will come in late in your season unless you start them early and are a slave to uppotting them a few times (not many can handle a 5 gallon pail or 7 gallon nursery pot until plantout). I am in a high desert and altitude so afternoon shade (thanks to a big tree) and misting when temps go above 85, and stopping it a few hours before sundown so plants dry out.... I can get 20 or so fruit over a pound and another 20 or so in 12-16 oz range. They will crack on top but that is water after they are turning ripe and just cut that slice off. I find they go good at Farmer Market IF you sacrifice a few and use the toothpicks and let someone have a taste. To me they taste like tomato-candy. I don't like a raw tomato usually but I'll eat these raw. Hornworms, I get a few, these aren't the only ones that get some.
