I grew what I call Brandywine Dark side by side with Black Brandywine last fall. To my surprise Brandywine Dark (BD) was easily as large or larger than the Black Brandywine (BB) tomatoes that I grew. Vine size was large and similar for both. Both were regular leaf and both appeared to be a tolerant to modest nematode activity. Color is somewhat different with BD having somewhat less green shoulders and a bit less dark, i.e. a bit more of a red color. The larger BD tomatoes develop much more a an oblong shape (boat shape) than BB. And important to me BD is a much more productive tomato than BB. Also, both my wife and I liked the taste of BD over BB. If anyone would like some Brandywine Dark seeds to try, PM and I will do my best to get them to you. Larry
