Brandy Boy versus Brandywine et.al.
After a 2009 of severe Septoria, for 2010, I'm going to try several of the Potato Leaf varieties recommended in "100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden" by Carolyn J. Male. On at least part of my plants, I'm also going to spray with Daconil. Perhaps a couple of other plants will get foliage "home remedies" such as baking soda, etc. (?)
Of her recommendations, I've previously grown only Pink Brandywine. I only grew it once, and it did not do well for me -- low yield and really ugly tomatoes. But I have grown Brandy Boy several times with pretty good to very good success. Plants are not huge, yields good, taste is very good (but to me no better to me than a well-grown Big Boy or Better Boy). So in my little backyard experiment, Brandy Boy will be the benchmark for the others.
Has anyone else grown Brandy Boy with an eye for comparison against Brandywines or others?
