BrandyFred originated from a cross between Dwarf Wild Fred (one of our initial Dwarf Project releases) and Brandywine made by Vince Lavallo in 2009, named Tasty (an F1 hybrid). BrandyFred is a mid-season potato leaf dwarf with heavy yields of medium to large smooth dusky rose purple fruit with a deep crimson interior in the 8 – 12 oz range, possessing a rich, balanced, delicious flavor. Plants reach about a metre+/ 3-5 ft by end of season. This variety was selected and named by project volunteer Vince Lavallo.
