How to Grow Brandywine Tomatoes

  1. Choose a location with plenty of sunlight and warm temperatures. Preferably a spot in your garden that gets at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. The soil should be rich and well-draining, with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. You can amend the soil with compost or aged manure to improve its nutrient content.
  2. Start seeds indoors indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date. Sow the seeds in a seed tray or small pots filled with seed-starting mix. Keep the soil moist and warm around 21-24°C (or 70-75°F) until the seeds germinate. Once the seedlings have two sets of true leaves, transplant them into larger pots.
  3. Transplant seedlings when the threat of frost has passed, and the soil has warmed up. Space the plants about 60-90 cm (2-3 feet) apart to allow room for growth. If you’re planting in rows, space the rows about 90-120 cm (3-4 feet) apart.  Or plant seeds directly after the last frost or earlier if you live in a warm climate.
  4. Water consistently and maintain moisture to produce large, juicy fruits. Deeply water once a week, or more frequently if the soil dries out quickly. Avoid getting water on the leaves, as this can lead to fungal diseases.
  5. Fertilise your Brandywine tomatoes with a balanced fertiliser (such as 10-10-10) every three to four weeks. Alternatively, you can use organic fertilisers, such as compost or aged manure.
  6. Support the plants to keep them from sprawling on the ground.  You can use stakes or cages or a method of your choice to support the plants. Staking is best for smaller gardens, while cages work well for larger plants.
  7. Harvest and enjoy after about about 80-100 days after they have matured. The fruits will be large (up to 900 grams or 2 pounds), juicy, and bursting with flavour. You’ll know they’re ripe when they turn a deep red colour and feel slightly soft to the touch. Simply pick them from the vine and enjoy them in salads, sandwiches, or as a tasty snack.
