People are crazy about any tomato with the name of Brandywine in it. But I have to admit that this is not my favorite black tomato. I prefer more zing. However, it's not bad. The flavor is mild, sweet and earthy.
True Black Brandywine was bred in the 1920's by Dr. Harold E. Martin of Westtown, PA. It is a cross between Brandywine and a brown beefsteak called Feejee Improved. Medium-large fruits.
