Lycopersicon esculentum. Indeterminate tomato plant with potato leaf foliage. Huge beefsteak type fruits that seldom have blemishes or cracking, this red variant is among the famous line of American heirloom Brandywine strains. Brandywine was passed on from the Sudduth family to an Ohio tomato enthusiast named Ben Quisenberry. The flavor is very rich and complex, but not sweet as you might expect.

Additional instructions: Cage or stake indeterminate tomato plants to support expected growth. Cage or stake plants to support expected growth. Indeterminate varieties can grow 6 feet tall or more. Roots will form on buried portions of the stems of tomato plants, so vigorous, compact transplants can be planted about 2 inches (5 cm) deeper than they are in the pot. For taller, lanky plants with few leaves, pinch off the lower leaves and set the plants into the soil horizontally with just a few sets of top leaves showing above the ground. 
Harvesting instructions: Pick your tomatoes when the fruits turn a pink to red, are beginning to soften and they release easily from the stems.
