This is my first year offering the well known Brandywine tomato. I have grown it and liked it in the past so thought I should add it to my collection of tomatoes. It is large and pink/red with a sweetness to the flesh that many love. I find most of the fruit marketable with little cracking. The flavor in taste testings is unsurpassed. Many people love a large slicer that will cover a sandwich. This is one of the best.
Use a strong trellis with this one, as the vines bear many large fruits that need support. I use livestock wire and weave the plants through the wire as they grow. I plant beans with them as it is a good companion. Our plants get lots of homemade biodynamic compost as well as trace minerals such as azomite and seaweeds giving them wonderful taste and keeping qualities.
All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
