This tomato variety is an indeterminate heirloom known for its unique, teardrop-shaped leaves and of course, its delicious, massive fruits! The Brandywine tomato plant is a vigorous grower that produces large fruit with pink skin and red flesh. These tomatoes reach over a pound each, are rich in flavor, and have a distinctively spiced taste.

Brandywine Tomato Plant Care  

Start your tomatoes inside about 2-4 weeks before the last frost. Plant seeds one-quarter inch deep and keep them in a warm location. In ideal conditions, sprouts should appear in 5-6 days. Keep the sprouts warm until you are ready to plant outside. After the last frost, move sprouts outside to harden off, providing them with adequate space to grow large, heavy tomatoes. They require 24-36 inches of space between plants, and if you’ll have rows, make sure they are planted at least 3 feet apart. A robust trellis for support should be provided for each plant.

Growing Brandywine Tomato Plant 

Brandywine tomato plants should be ready to harvest in 80 to 100 days. They absolutely need full sun, about 8-10 hours of direct, full sun per day. A 1-inch layer of mulch at the base (not touching the stem) can be beneficial as it will reduce weeds, improve drainage, and keep the soil warm.  

Brandywine tomato plants can grow 8-10 feet tall! Prune suckers off at the nodes of your Brandywine plants to encourage more flowering. These massive plants will need to be kept from sprawling. Trim off the foliage that touches the ground to decrease the risk of diseases. The soil for your Brandywine Tomato Plant should be rich in organic matter, and well draining. A slightly acidic soil pH of about 6.5 is best for strong growth.

Watering Brandywine Tomato Plant 

Water at the soil level, avoiding the foliage. Once established, water the plant twice a week (or when dry), fully saturating the soil. Keep in mind that the roots do not like to be left sitting in soggy soil. On average, your plant(s) should receive one inch of water per week.

Feeding Brandywine Tomato Plant 

These plants benefit from access to plenty of nutrients. When planting, use soil that is rich in organic matter. When plants begin to grow fruit, apply an organic fertilizer with a NPK ratio of 5-10-10, and repeat the feeding every 1-2 months. An excess of nitrogen will encourage only leaves, not that great fruit!

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
