1. Original Name: Brandywine. Brandywine is a liquor produced on the basis of wine. In short, brandy is a distilled wine. Its name is derived from the Dutch word 'brandewijn' literally meaning 'burned wine'. In some sources, this variety is known as Pink Brandywine because it has numerous variants of red, yellow or brown color now.

2. History: It is an old heirloom variety. It became known thanks to a woman named Dorris Suddhut Hill. That is why this variety is also known as Sudduth Strain. As reported by Craig LeHoullier, a gardener from Ohio named Ben Quisenberry received the seeds from Dorris Sudduth Hill from Tennessee, who claimed that she could trace the variety in her family for 80 years starting from 1900. In 1982, Ben Quisenberry introduced this variety to the Seed Savers Exchange collection. There is also a version that this variety is of Amish origins. In Pennsylvania where Amish settlements used to be located, there is a river named the Brandywine River. The last name 'Suddhut' means 'southern Dutch' and Amish are known to be of Dutch origin.

3. Plant Specifications: Mid-season. A good choice for a greenhouse and outdoors. Indeterminate, tall bush, growing up to 6.5 feet (200 cm) tall and more. Thick stem. Potato leaf. Regular truss, 3-5 fruits per truss.

4. Training Instructions: It is preferable to train the bush to one or two or not more than three main stems. Pruning and staking are a must.

5. Shape and Weight: Beefsteak fruits of the salad type. The fruits often have shallow ribs near the stem end. Weight: 10.6-21.2 oz. (300-600 g).

6. Color: Bright pink. The fruits may have green spots on the shoulders but these spots disappear when fully ripe. The color of the flesh is also pink.

7. Flavor Profile: It has become a heirloom variety due to its taste. Are there any people who do not like large pink tomatoes? They are very sweet with refreshing tartness and a pleasant mild tomato flavor. This flavor is typical of pink tomatoes. The balance of the flesh and juice is just perfect.

8. Culinary Use: Perfect for fresh salads, delicious juices and sauces.
