Brandywines are not the most beautiful tomatoes. They are not the hardiest. They are not very portable; they don’t travel well. They are not uniform in size or shape. They don’t always ripen evenly. Sometimes they get to be so large and juicy on the vine that it’s nearly impossible to pick them off without rupturing the skin. And, again, they are not so pretty.
They just the best tasting tomatoes we’ve grown.
Next year, we will plant a whole lot more brandywine tomato plants. Sadly enough, this year, there were not enough to satisfy our love for them.
