I grow Brandywine tomatoes from seed. My plants are vigorous and fruit is large and delicious. This year I planted late because of all the rain here in Ky. They are just now starting to ripen and the plants are healthy in spite of the high temp. The other tomato plants are doing ok but feeling the effects of the heat. Hope to get some much needed rain this week.

I've grown Brandywine, Brandywine Pink, and Yellow Brandywine. For me, 'Yellow Brandywine' has been the best producer -- the other two were lackluster in production (although equally huge on taste), even grown in the same conditions as Yellow Brandywine (an every-year tomato for me since I first tried it). The only other yellow that comes close for flavor & productivity is Mr. Stripey.

And yes, I'm pretty sure the name is 'Yellow Brandywine' (historically), even though listed in our DB as 'Brandywine, Yellow'.
I'm learning to dance in the rain. Thank you, Sally & Chris & Sharon.
