I picked and ate my first Brandywine tomato today. It was intoxicating (not the posion you to death toxic, but the falling in love with the juiciness kind), to say the least. It was amazingly juicy, low in seeds... and not very acidic in taste. So it was great for slicing for sure. It was cracked and most of my brandywines are, so I can honestly say they are ugly.... but don't judge a book by it's cover!!!
Ok I wanted to post an image of a pink Brandywine to show what it looks like! Notice the dark crack on this one... mine look worse! HEhehehe Several of mine have been this big though. Its a great Heirloom variety if you chose to grow your own, you should most definitely make room for these... they are also EARLY producing and quick ripeners.
