About Livingston’s Ohio Red

Livingston’s Ohio Red AKA Ohio Red. Released in 1929 by the Livingston Seed Company. Picking up where the Livingston’s left off, Victory Seed Company has been growing and selecting for the traits described in the historical record. But taking their queue from Livingston’s, they re-released it ‘Ohio Red’ in 2012 with the disclaimer that its fruits do have variability in shape. As Livingston’s put it in 1929, “It is not entirely fixed in type as yet, but we are making some of the finest selections for our yearly plantings, and it will be interesting to note the improvement as the years go by.”
Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce 4-12 oz., red, elongated to flattened globe-shaped fruits with good flavors.
