@Scorpio Rising wrote:The two have similar shapes.  It is in the color.  Cherokee Purple are typically purplish brown almost, whereas Brandywines are red or pinkish.  They taste very similar in my opinion.  Rich, sweet.


For me I have found the Brandywine Reds to be Dark Red - "Orangeish"  for lack of a better word, "Brandywine Red" on the right and a Pinkish "Boxcar Willie" on the Left.
The color of the BoxCar willie looks similar to a Mortgage Lifter.

I agree on the color being a purplish brown, sort of. Here is a Brandywine (Left) with a Cherokee Purple (Right).

You can definitely pick out the three different tomatoes in this picture.

What I like about the Cherokee Purples is when you cut them open, they may not be as pretty on the outside, but the inside is beautiful.

Thanks for the good laugh from your description.  I have 'planted' new things too then waited and waited only to realize later I must have pulled the authentic plant and nurtured a gorgeous weed.  It happens and its funny later on. At the moment of discovery its not so humorous.  You will have your brandywine next time!
Thanks for sharing. Now I don't feel quite so stoopid. Embarassed

Yeah, that was one weird looking tomato plant.  I once nurtured a cherry plant, and was so excited that I'd have a tree one day, only to find out it was a wild loosestrife that must have come up out of the compost.   Rolling Eyes

So, we cut open the mystery tomato and it looks just like the Cherokee Purple that SQWIB posted above.  It was good but we decided we didn't like it enough to grow it so I tossed the seeds.  I always thought that my homegrown Brandywines were a bit bland for my taste and this was the same.  

But, IMO, different gardens, composts, locations, etc, produce different flavor results, if only subtle, even if the same seeds used.

Foiled again! My seeds turned out to be "Purple Russian" instead of Cherokee Purple. I may still order seeds, but probable for starting inside next winter. Sad

Will tomatoes grow in winter? Even in CA, the days get kind of short.

I have an unobstructed southern exposure floor-to-ceiling window and full-spectrum LED grow lights. I should be able to get it done. Fingers crossed.
