    My brandywines plants, the leaves look smoother and not as veiny as other mater plants, the stems also look different from the average .... they're smoother and lighter green.
    hope that helps....

    edited to say as far as seedlings...no I wouldn't be able to help ya there, mine are plants....

    Rutgers has regular "tomato" leaves, most (but not all) Brandywines are potato-leafed. It should become obvious as they grow; Rutger's fruit averages 6 ozs, Brandywines are monsters weighing a lb or more.

    Here's a picture of brandy wine. The leaves are smooth around the edges.

    Since clicking the image didn't work. Let's try posting a different one.The first pot is brandywine and the one behind it is beefsteak. Note the differences in the leaves.
