Brandywine Heirloom tomatoes have a thin skin so they're best eaten raw, not cooked. Slice them for sandwiches or cut into wedges for mixed green salads. Drizzle on favorite dressings, balsamic vinegar, or sprinkle with seasonings. Create a tomato relish using fresh basil, chopped red onion, diced jalapeno, minced garlic, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Grill breads with tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and some salt.
An Amish heirloom first introduced around 1885 in Chester County, Pennsylvania, the Brandywine Heirloom tomato comes from the collection of tomatoes of the late Ben Quisenberry. Tending to literally hundreds of tomatoes from 1910 to the 1960s, his work has been carried on by Seed Savers Exchange. The Brandywine's thin skin prevented it from being shipped long distances. Not widely grown commercially, this delicate tomato eventually became an heirloom variety.
