Genuwine Hybrid #2542 --
Crossing two different heirlooms creates a variety that is much higher yielding and earlier maturing, while retaining great flavor and fewer blemishes. Such is the case with this cross between Brandywine and Costoluto Genovese. Brandywine is legendary for sweet, rich taste while Costoluto Genovese has beautiful scallops, great production, and ability to set fruit in hot weather. Genuwine plants are regular-leaved and produce delicious 10 to 12 oz. fruits that have some of the ribbing of the Costoluto Genovese but with the larger size and fuller shape of a Brandywine. 70 days.
