80 days. Open polinated Heirloom. Indeterm. Brandywine started the heirloom craze. The exact opposite of a supermarket tomato - very sweet, tasty, and juicy. Also, not disease resistant or crack resistant, and prone to being cosmetically challenged. But, with such flavor, who cares? Large, pink fruits, often with green shoulders. This strain is less prone to ugliness than others. Most of our fruits last year were marketable, smooth, round, with very little concentric cracking, but still had that memorable sweet/acid, full, deep, rich flavor. This strain is also more productive than others. We harvested fruits late into the season despite high disease pressure. Harvest when still a little immature and firm for best results. Tastes excellent at this stage and won't morph into a pile of mush overnight.
Germinated at 95%.
|Lifecycle:||1 (0: N/A, 1: annual, 2: perennial, 3: biennial)|
|Soil:||Adaptable. Tomatoes need phosphorous, potassium, and calcium more than nitrogen. Bonemeal is the perfect fertilizer. Too much nitrogen causes plant growth and fewer and later fruits.|
|Propagation / Germination:||Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before last frost. Keep soil lightly moist, not wet. Germinates at room temperature (60 to 85 degrees), but does best at 77 degrees.|
|Water:||Water weekly if necessary. Tomatoes appreciate a deep mulch, but wait until soil has warmed and plants are growing rapidly.|
