Brandywine, Yellow (Platfoot Strain)

About Brandywine, Yellow (Platfoot Strain)

Since 1991 Yellow Brandywine has become an American favorite heirloom tomato. The Platfoot strain of Yellow Brandywine, from Gary Platfoot of Ohio, is considered to produce smoother fruit and a better yield than the original strain from Charles Knoy of Indiana in 1991. Big, indeterminate, potato-leaf tomato plants that yield large amounts of 12-16 oz., 3 to 5-inch, yellow-orange (gold), flattened, slightly ribbed shouldered beefsteak tomato with delicious, intense sweet flavors balanced with a slight tartness. One of the best-tasting yellow tomatoes. A great variety for commercial farming. Suited for eating sliced, in salads, and sauce.
