About Livingston’s Favorite

Livingston’s Favorite AKA Favorite. Originally developed for canneries, ‘Favorite’ withstood shipping over long distances and had very desirable market qualities. In A. W. Livingston’s 1892 book entitled, “Livingston and the Tomato,” he recounted how he had developed his ‘Favorite’ tomato:
“I selected from a field of Paragons a tomato quite distinct from it, as any one can see who grows them side by side in the field. This new tomato I improved, and introduced in 1883, naming it Livingston’s Favorite Tomato.”
Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces 6-10 oz., red, smooth, round, oblate (flattened-globes), with exceptional flavors. Livingston described it as follows: “It is an early, blood-red, smooth, and most prolific tomato. It has no open spaces about the seeds in cavity, or ridges and hollows from stem to blossom ends. It ripens evenly, is a solid, meaty tomato, and has thicker flesh parts, of finer fibre, than any other used up to that time.” 90 days
