Organic Yellow Brandywine Tomato Seeds (90 days) 

Platfoot Strain

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Indeterminate.  Potato leaf foliage. 
The Platfoot strain of Yellow Brandywine was first listed in 1996.  It is named after Gary Platfoot of Ohio who selected for this improved strain of Yellow Brandywine. Carolyn Male author of 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden says..."the Platfoot strain offers a much higher yield than other yellow brandywine strains, and the fruits have far fewer blemishes.  Now it's the only Yellow Brandywine I grow."

Brandywine Yellow is a deep golden beefsteak tomato that has had gardeners raving for years.  It has a rich, complex flavor that is highly sought after. 

California Grown Heirloom Seed
Yellow Brandywine is always one of the last to produce in the garden as it needs a long season and benefits from warm nights.  However, it is worth the wait!  There were very few fruits less than a pound and most were closer to 2 lbs.  Make sure to have excellent support.  I noticed no disease problems and was even impressed when it went through some mild freezes unscathed.  Not as prolific as Red Brandywine so plant a few extra plants because you will need them.  Visitors to the winery couldn't keep their hands off them!

Planting Tips for Heirloom Tomatoes:

Most gardeners want to get the most out of these delicious heirloom tomatoes and therefore give them a head start on the growing season.  Start these vegetable seeds indoors in sterile potting mix being sure to keep the temperature above 70 degrees.  Some people prefer to use a grow pad but the top of the fridge has been known to be quite effective as well. 

Once the first true leaves appear on your tomato seedlings, transplant into 4" pots until you have completely hardened them off in the garden.  Hardening is a process of exposing the plants more and more to outside temperature until they are hardy enough to tollerat a complete outdoor move.  Generally speaking, by early summer heirloom tomatoes should be transplated into the garden.

Most heirloom varieties are quite productive and will greatly benefit from sturdy supports.  It may also be advisable to add blood and bone to the worked soil to help ensure healthy productive heirloom tomatoes.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Tomato Seeds:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
