Absolutely loved this one. It is very different from Brandywine, but just as good in a different way. Tomatoes got huge for me - I didn't weigh them but they were about as big as the Brandywines. Bright cheery red color, excellent meaty texture, and fantastic flavor. It remained healthy and produced fairly early. More productive than Brandywine last summer.

I always plant this variety among my heirlooms. It withstands the Southern heat and produces a fruit with superior tomato flavor.

Red Brandywine does very well for me in terms of production, and is also great tasting. I get fairly uniform, round fruits that are generally 8-12 oz or so. Seed source is important on this one, there is a lot of incorrect seed out there for this variety.
Important to note that this variety is Regular Leaf, and not Potato Leaf. A few years ago, there was seed incorrectly distributed for Red Brandywine that was potato leaf. Also, the fruit shape and size was not true to type. Some like this variety, others don't. In any case, it is certainly not Red Brandywine,although some may still be selling it as such, or may be offering a PL "Red Brandywine".
