Organic Brandywise F1 Tomato

Indeterminate 75 days to harvest Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Description

Finally, a juicy red slicing tomato full of disease resistance and flavor!

Organic Brandywise Tomato pairs the rich heirloom flavor of Brandywine with Cornell’s cutting-edge resistance to Late Blight, Early Blight, and Septoria Leaf Spot. Best of both worlds, indeed!

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! And if you’re looking for other disease-resistant tomatoes, we have four that are resistant to Late Blight, Early Blight, and Septoria Leaf Spot: Brandywise, Summer Sweetheart, Chiapas, and Coyote.

Grow your tomato and eat it, too!

  1. Pat LaPoint

    This is my main tomato crop – it never disappoints, it will always be my favorite. Have not had a trace of late blight since I began planting it.

  2. Kat (verified owner)

    I only planted one of this variety last year because I tried so many. The fruit on my plant looked a bit different than the pictures, with gold shoulders and some streaks, making it hard to tell when the first few were ripe. But once I figured them out, they were beautiful and delicious. This plant did get some disease around the same time as the rest, but it continued to produce large tomatoes after some other varieties died, and up until frost. Will grow more this year!

    Planted these last year (2021) and will again. We’ve had serious early blight issues in the past, but these survived to give a decent crop of delicious fruit. Nevertheless, the plants eventually succumbed to blight, limiting the crop. My reading of Cornell resources suggests that the blight resistance is limited to the fruit, while leaves and stems are still susceptible. I would have given 5 stars but felt this fact should have been clarified. This year I’ll take more care to treat for blight despite the resistance.

    First year trying this variety. Started seeds early inside. Plants grew fantastic to a height of two feet. Within one week all the plants have developed an issue where the leaves turn tan then brown. When they first turn tan they almost appear translucent.

  5. Mmmm (verified owner)

    I grew eight varieties this year and this was by far the standout (and of prior years). Very prolific and the last variety standing after the rest succumbed to blight. My only complaint is the fruit is smaller than regular brandywine, however, I have always found brandywine to be the first to die from blight so the trade off is worth it. Next season I might cull to our fruit on each cluster to see if they will grow larger.
