Best tomato I have ever had!
Reviewed By: Steve (Centerville, SD)
Brandywine is my favorite, but continue to try other varieties. Fun to experiment,lol. That's really what a home garden is all about. Great tomato, perfect blend of acid and sugar. Great BLT's.

Unbelievable
Reviewed By: Nelly (Charlotte, NC)
"I couldn't believe how good this tomato tasted. I have always been kind of ""ick"" about tomatoes since I was a kid. I was literally pulling these off the vine, slicing them and eating them, no salt or anything! Only problem was they didn't bear for very long. It was still worth it!"

Delicious
Reviewed By: BRC (Tahlequah, OK)
This was my first season growing tomatoes and the Brandywine is one of the two varieties we are going to grow again for sure (the other is Mortgage Lifter). These tomatoes are meaty and the flavor is amazing! The vines are still producing this fall and they are a good 8' tall!

My Favorite
Reviewed By: Robert (Herbert, Kentucky)
Last year was my first serious attempt at a garden. I planted several different varieties of tomato plants to see which one I liked best. These were my pick of the lot! They had the best taste and produced very large tomato's. Even though we had a very dry year the plants were huge and did very well. I also really liked the Mortgage Lifter but thought these had a slightly better taste.

VERY disappointing
Reviewed By: Cindy (West Lafayette, IN)
If you want flavor, pass over this tomato. We were VERY crushed after planting this variety and ending up with absolutely NO flavorable fruit. I purchased after reading the reviews and my family was extremely disappointed.

Brandywine plants
Reviewed By: Autumn (Georgetown, TX)
I was excited after reading the reviews of this tomato, but they've been planted for about 2 months now and the plant is very healthy and growing very tall with healthy leaves and tons of blossoms, but the blossoms keep falling off. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I even used the tomato food from Gurneys on them. I know it's hot in TX, and the hot weather is not agreeable with the plants, but it hss been relatively cool here so far and still no fruit. I guess brandywines don't do well in TX. Bummer.

MMMMmmmm
Reviewed By: Deb (Boise City, Oklahoma)
"Brandywine is about the last one, I have come in every year, and it is the sweetest one. Wonderful flavor! I cry every year, when I have to take that vine down and, I miss it terribly until the next year's one produces. It likes to crack, and everything seems to like to chomp on them too, but. This year that squirrel will find my Brandywine in it's own hardware mesh cage! No more getting my last haul of over a dozen just as they turn! It is a large vine and needs good strong large cage to keep it up though. Plant one and you will need one every year, no matter what other tomatoes you plant."

Reviewed By: Matt Reed (Rockwell, Iowa)
I love this tomato, It is the sweetest tasting tomato I have ever eaten, it makes the biggest meatiest tomatoes I've ever eaten. It is great for canning because it doesn't take as many of these tomatoes. It is more susceptible to insects than other breeds of tomatoes.
