These are all descriptions that Ro has gathered together from various places. She also shared a bunch of growing tips I'll write about in my next post.
Brandywine – (Pink/Red) This variety is legendary for its exceptional rich, succulent flavor. Large beefsteak fruit can become 1-1/2 lbs. with creamy flesh. Vines grow quite tall, have potato-leaved foliage. An Amish heirloom since 1885. Not a heavy producer. This is one of my favorites and although it's listed as not a heavy producer I've had good luck with it.
Cherokee Purple – Heirloom from Tennessee cultivated by the Native American Cherokee Tribe. Very productive plants producing loads of dusky rose to purple 12 oz. – 1lb. beefsteak tomatoes with deep red colored interior flesh. Indeterminate - 80 days.
