An all-time classic now made even better!
Brandy Boy captures all the rich flavour of the beloved Brandywine heirloom tomato (long the flavour favourite among heritage tomato enthusiasts) with a more shapely form, tidier growth habit, improved disease-resistance and bigger, earlier yields. Our new hybrid produces loads of large pink fruits up to 14cm (5½") across. The fruits ripen evenly and share Brandywine’s soft heirloom texture, thin skin and exceptional tangy-sweet taste. Beefsteak tomato.
(Cordon variety - one stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear, needs staking and tying in.)
Versatile in the kitchen, this is one of the tastiest tomatoes you can grow! Their meaty texture and rich tomato flavour are complemented by an abundance of juice - roasted, stuffed or just sliced, you can't ask for more than that!

On Arrival - Remove the plants from the box as soon as they arrive and check that the compost is adequately moist, watering if necessary with tepid water. Leave them on a shaded windowsill or in a greenhouse for a few hours to settle before further handling, ensuring a frost-free non-draughty situation. Potting On - These plants should be potted on as soon as possible, but they will keep quite well for 2–3 days if necessary, provided they are kept in a warm light place and are not allowed to dry out. Use 10cm (4") pots and a good quality moist proprietary compost and set the plants so that the top of the root ball is level with the compost surface. After potting, give a thorough watering, but thereafter take care to avoid overwet conditions, particularly as the young plants become re-established. Grow on in a light, humid position, and maintain an initial temperature of 16–18˚C (60–65˚F).
