Organic Brandywise Tomato, Hybrid 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.

Enjoy!

5 of 5 Excellent. January 3, 2020
Reviewer: Michael Boujoulian from Arlington, MA United States  
100% germination.  

Awesome fruit.  My community garden is generally poorly managed around us, and the fungus/blight is rampant.   These performed better than true heirlooms as well as big/better boy hybrids.  

20 plants produced all our summer eating (and we eat a lot of tomatoes) as well as 10 gallons canned.   if we weren't battling armies of vermin, we'd likely have had 15 gallons or more put up.

Definitely will grow again.  Probably will start a bit later than recommended, as my transplants were a bit leggy by mid May.

Very pleased! We usually only grow heirloom tomatoes, and we were pleasantly surprised at the texture and flavor!

5 of 5 Good, disease-resistant variety December 16, 2019
Reviewer: Angela from Johnstown, PA United States  
I've been having problems with septoria for a number of years and tried a number of disease-resistant varieties in 2019. This one did very well and lasted until the end of the season. Will definitely buy again!
