The tomato ‘Big Brandy’ is the perfect marriage between two great Heritage varieties, 'Big Dwarf' and 'Brandywine'. This tomato plant will yield masses of beautiful pink coloured beefsteak tomatoes (350-425g) which are highly ribbed and very attractive. Higher yielding and earlier maturing than either parent, you will be harvesting these delicious tomatoes from late July-early October. Reaching heights of 151-200cm (59-79") and spread 41-50cm (16-20").
The Big Brandy variety is a fruit with rich complexity that works well fresh and cooked. Sweet, juicy and flavoursome these fruits will create an impressive addition to salads during the summer months.
The ‘Big Brandy’ is included in the Rob Smith Heritage Range that is dedicated to his love for gardening and allotment growing. So why not try a tomato variety that has stood the test of time, a must-have for any keen gardener.
