Very nice tasting, late ripening Brandywine. Large plant, grows well in the S Fla winter season.

Deep yellowish orange coloration, fabulous taste. Great sugar/acid balance, definitely not bland. Tends to be low yielding in hot climates.

This is a distinct strain of Yellow Brandywine, and came from the garden of Gary Platfoot.
