“BrandyFred” 2016 field notes: Potato leaf, pink (clear epi), very flattened beefsteaks. Production low to average. Flavor very good.

“BrandyFred” originated with a cross made between Dwarf Wild Fred and Brandywine by Vince Lavallo in 2008 and named Tasty. BrandyFred was selected and named by Vince. The vigorous potato leaf dwarf plant produces very good yields of smooth oblate purple (clear skinned black) fruit that range between 10-16 ounces, possessing a rich, well balanced delicious flavor. Involved are Vince Lavallo, Linda Black, Craig LeHoullier, Robbins Hail, Bill Yoder, Richard Watson, Patrick Sullivan, Sandra Tipton, and Shawn Conant. The starting seed sample was grown and provided by Bill Minkey.
