About Brandywine, OTV

A potato-leaf heirloom named and released by Carolyn Male and Craig LeHoullier who state this tomato, “the best strain of Brandywine set apart from others by its smooth, creamy, almost buttery texture, and harmonious sweet flavor.” The fruits of this potato-leaf heirloom are rich red with a slight orange undertone and weigh an average of 1 lb. This variety is known to set fruit better than the Pink Brandywine. According to Carolyn Male “The only Brandywine that seems to set fruits well in the south is OTV Brandywine, which is not a strain of Brandywine, but is the result of an accidental cross between Yellow Brandywine and an unknown male parent.”
