Organic Brandywise Hybrid Tomato Finally, a juicy red slicer full of disease resistance and flavor! Here you have Brandywine flavor paired with Cornell's cutting-edge Late and Early Blight as well as Septoria resistance.
The whole story:
Whether you hope to harvest ten or ten thousand tomatoes, diseases like Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria Leaf Spot are affecting your abundance every season here in the Northeast. Though many cultural practices can reduce the spread of disease (like growing under plastic and watering soil rather than leaves), sowing seeds with natural genetic resistance is the single greatest thing you can do to increase your success, whether you are an organic or conventional grower.
Martha Mutschler-Chu develops such tomatoes at Cornell University.
Brandywise is our favorite of Martha's tomatoes, one of her triple-resistant lines crossed with the quintessential heirloom tomato 'Brandywine.' Indeed, Brandywise is the best of both worlds: succulent flavor and resistance to Light Blight and Septoria as well as Early Blight tolerance.
