Organic Brandywise F1 Tomato
Indeterminate | 75 days to harvest | Lycopersicon lycopersicum
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!
