Description

The ultimate heirloom tomato. Accept no substitutes — this is the real thing! This fine potato-leaf variety is a controlled cross between Brandywine and the original brown Beefsteak tomato, otherwise known as ‘Fejee Improved’, which is now probably extinct. Scintillating, full, earthy flavor with less watery juice than other Brandywines. Extra-large, deeply purple-black fruit is superior for fresh uses and cooking in a myriad of dishes. We think this tomato should be a staple in every vegetable garden in the country, it’s that exceptional! Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.

Have had Brandywine before. Curiosity got the best of me if two great tomatoes make a greater tomato.

I chose this tomato for its size and because it is a dark black/purple/red tomato which will make it high in antioxidants and pest-resistant.

I had the opportunity to taste this tomato at a friends gathering last year and was blown away by the bold flavor the fact that it is an heirloom seed was an added plus
