Tomato - Black Brandywine - Lycopersicon esculentum

Tender Annual Indeterminate. Heirloom. The fuzzy "potato" leaves show that this is the desirable Black heirloom, not a more recent cross. Sought after for its luscious "tomato" taste. The tomatoes are the typical flattened-oval Brandywine shape, and fruits weigh up to a pound. Rich burgundy-purple color with black shoulders.

Soil & Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.

Did You Know? The heirloom Black Brandywine was bred in the 1920s by Dr. Harold Martin, a Pennsylvania dentist.
