Red fruited tomato, with a similar flavor and shape as the infamous pink colored Brandywine heirloom.

Medium to large fruit are slightly flattened with slight ribbing. Great uniformity of fruit and ripening. Indeterminate.
Days to maturity: 78 days
Tomatoes love hot days and cool nights. For the best tomato harvest:

Growing conditions
  • Fertile, well-drained soil
  • Soil pH of 6.0-6.8
  • Moderate to high levels of potassium (P) and potash (K)
  • Transplant when daytime temperatures reach 70F and night time temperatures are above 55F
  • Average spacing: 12-18" between plants in rows 36-48" apart.
Harvest
  • For storage and shipping, harvest when the blossom end turns pink.
  • For fresh market harvest when color develops but fruits are still firm.
Storage
  • Store ripe tomatoes at 45-50F and 90-95% relative humidity.
  • Hold mature-green tomatoes for ripening at 65-70F.
Pest and Disease Prevention
  • Avoid overhead irrigation
  • Practice crop rotations with all Solanceae species
  • Staking and orienting rows to increase air circulation can aid in disease prevention.
Notes:
  • Deep, infrequent watering encourages deep rooting and higher quality fruit production
  • Indeterminate varieties should be staked, caged, or trellised to obtain best yields and to prevent disease
