Brandywine Red Tomato seeds
Brandywine Red tomatoes are one of the Beefsteak strain of tomatoes that belong to the species Lycopersicon esculentum (also known as Solanum lycopersicum.) Tomato plants that belong to the Beefsteak set all have fruit that is large in size. There is plenty of speculation regarding where Brandywine originated from with many believing it to be Ohio, USA. The tomatoes are big and red. Not only is the red colour uniform all over the fruit’s surface, but it also extends to the insides. The fruit has pulpy flesh that’s covered up under a thin layer of skin. The fruit has an undeniably classic flavour and no acidity whatsoever.
Brandywine Red is an obvious candidate for many dishes owing to its minimal acidity, size and flavour. The juicy sweetness is reason enough to eat the fruit raw or use them as toppings for burgers. The sweetness also mingles beautifully with the flavours of other fruit in salads. One can also count on it to pair well with both herbs and cheeses. Brandywine Red is a very productive plant both in terms of size and number of fruit. One can expect to harvest fruit that weighs 350 grams and sprout in clusters of between 4 and 6. The plant’s maturation period lasts between 85 and 100 days.
