Brandywine Tomato VTO-5780



Mid-season. Indeterminate vines.

Big pink heirloom from 1885, sets the standard for tomato flavor.

Rich, perfectly balanced taste, and meaty texture.

Potato-leaved vines like space, consistent water and lots of compost. Large fruits in clusters, so support vines well.

BOTANICAL NAME: Solanum lycopersicum


Start in flats or pots 2 months or so before setting out. Transplant into well-composted soil after danger of frost is past. Set plants several inches deeper than in the pot-they will root along the stem. Greedy feeder-needs ample amounts of compost or decomposed manure. Needs lots of potassium, phosphorous, but not as much nitrogen. Needs calcium to prevent blossom-end rot; use gypsum or bone meal if necessary. Keep soil most in dry weather with periodic, deep watering and mulch.
