Cowlick’s Brandywine is a strain of Brandywine, that was found in the mid 2000’s by Mike Henry. He bought it as a plant labeled ‘Brandywine’ or ‘Pink Brandywine’, but the plant was much more productive and earlier than all other strains of ‘Brandywine’ tomato, that Mike Henry also grew in the same year. The fruit were larger and prettier and tasted better in Mr. Henry’s opinion. He decided to name this strain ‘Cowlick’s Brandywine’ after the nursery, where he bought the plant, and share the seeds with other tomato growers in the USA, Canada, Europe and Phillipines.
Indeterminate, strong and healthy potato leaf plants with very good yield of large (300-450g), round and oblate beefsteaks with very dense, meaty, dark pink flesh and small seed cavities. Excellent, rich tomato flavor, more sweet than acidic.
