Pink Brandywine report.

nugrdnnut(6a n-c WA)July 4, 2013

This is my first year in growing a Pink Brandywine heirloom tomato. It was planted May 11th in a raised bed with IRT plast mulch. At this point it has ~ 20 tomatoes (from BB to cupcake size). Additionally it must have 20 - 30 more flowers on it. It is trying to keep up with the Sungold in size, but is not able to.

I have read that it has great flavor but tends to (generally) have a little less production than some high producing beef steak tomatoes. I expect the first (larger) fruits to ripen by mid to late August.

It appears that my production will be good and I look forward to tasting the fruit when I can. I will try to get some pictures of the plant and fruit and post in the next few days.

You will be VERY happy with the Brandywine's flavor. They can get big too. Slices so large, that you can't see any part of a normal slice of bread under it, when making a BLT.

You are right about the size dropping after the 1st few really big ones. The flavor sure doesn't drop though.

Looking forward to seeing your pictures and updates.
