Pink Brandywine Tomato At Last!


This is the only time I have been able to grow a Pink Brandywine. Ever. In our area they are just too late of a season. Every year II grow them because of customer request but I generally push the Red Brandywines over the pinks since they are more reliable. While they may be the epitome of an heirloom tomato by which all heirloom tomatoes are judged by, I have yet to be able to grow them successfully.

This was a sad looking leftover, in a gallon pot, which were 2 months ahead of the game. No one wanted to take it home and there were already two tiny tomatoes growing so I put it into the garden. I’m a sucker that way, I shudder to kill something that is obviously trying so hard, even if it is just a plant.

So here we are, pictures of the elusive Pink Brandywine! One of the pictures has a tag that I make and sell. (I know, shameless plug). Today we will have BLT’s or put it into a salad and try it. I will let you know if I think they are worth all the hype.
