A.W. Livingston's Famous Tomatoes
About Our A. W. Livingston  Tomato Collection:

Although we are not keen on self-promotion or calling attention to ourselves, the work that we do here at the Victory Seed Company is significant and we are proud of our accomplishments.  This collection of A. W. Livingston tomato varieties is a great example of the seed variety preservation work that revenue from your orders supports.

After more than a decade of searching, growing, and matching our observations to original documentary evidence,  we are proud to offer the most complete, as well as, the most accurate collection of A. W. Livingston tomato varieties available anywhere, in perhaps seventy years.

A word of caution regarding opportunistic vendors . . . Just as they did in the time of A. W. Livingston, other seed sellers have purchased seed from us, grown out their own stock and are offering some of these varieties that we have worked hard to re-release.  Please understand that the seed that they are offering has not been grown by us.  We only offer our seeds direct to you, our gardening friends and supporters and never through third parties.

If you would like to grow out seed that is as close to what you could have purchased from old A. W., please consider ordering from us. Your purchases do directly support our continued seed variety preservation work.  Without it, varieties like these would remain in obscurity or worse, lost forever.
