Gardeners' Notes:

The hybrid tomato that was banished for impersonating a Brandywine. It was Burpeeís first attempt at hybridizing heirloom tomatoes for a plant that is more productive and easier to grow. In spite of once being marketed as Red Brandywine, it doesnít taste much like a Brandywine. It does happen to be one of the better mild & very smooth tasting red beefsteak types, as if the world really needed another one. It even won an heirloom tasting competition. LOL!! Not bad at all, just know what you are getting.

One other thing. I have grown this next to Better Boy. The plant has nearly identical form and was half again more vigorous. Use a large 6X6 concrete mesh cage. Itís going to be a monster. Lots of tomatoes.

Started from seeds. Plants look great and produce well. Tomatoes produce well, no splitting BUT taste very average. I was SO disappointed as they were producting so well with great shape, but the taste is what I'm after. I'm still searching for Brandywine taste with good production and no splitting. I must be dreaming.. I'll keep looking.

Mine was productive but the fruit cracked and the taste was only average.
