Prized by tomato aficionados for its large pink tasty fruit, said to be the most delicious of tomatoes. The variety is well over a century old; fruits are not as plentiful as with modern varieties but each one is huge and a slice will fill a burger bun.

Lycopersicon esculentum 'Brandywine' - heirloom tomato

DESCRIPTION: Historic heirloom variety producing full-flavoured large pink tomatoes. The leaves are often different to most tomatoes, not deeply cut but whole.  
PLANTING: Spring-Summer and Winter in warmer locations. Sow seeds directly into their final position or seed trays. Transplant when seedlings are easily handled, 10-15cm. A full sun location in free draining soil is ideal. For smaller gardens grow bags are perfect, place on a sunny balcony to enjoy a bumper crop.
USE IN: Almost anywhere in the kitchen! Ideal grilled, in salads, sauces and sandwiches.
CARE: Water seedlings daily until established and follow up with regular water especially during dry periods. Pinch out lower water shoots and keep two main stems. Use stakes to support plants and fruit as they mature. Mulch plants and apply liquid fertiliser regularly for best results. Protect plants from frost. If insects are a ever a problem use an organic insecticide like eco-oil which is safe to use on veggies. For the more adventurous home gardeners try companion planting with marigolds or chives, the natural oils help to deter unwanted visitors.
