Pink Brandywine report.

Posted by nugrdnnut 6b (My Page) on

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.

RE: Pink Brandywine report.

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.
