Description
Beauty Certified Naturally Grown Seed

80 days, indeterminate — The regular leaf plants of 'Beauty' vigorous, dense, and productive. Its fruits are a deep pink color, average four to eight ounces in weight, are smooth-skinned with some minor ribbing, and as the name implies, very beautiful.

As described by Alexander W. Livingston, 'Beauty' tomato fruits are, "The greatest of all Purple-Colored Home Market Sorts. Strong Grower, Very Productive. Large, Smooth and Early."[1]

In his autobiographical work entitled, "Livingston and the Tomato," Mr. Livingston further describes 'Beauty' as:
"My labor was rewarded with what I claim to be THE CROWN JEWEL OF THEM ALL. It has a stouter stalk than the Acme; heavier foliage, that protects it from the scalding hot sun, is slightly darker in its purple color [ed. pink]; almost, if not equally, as early, and much larger than Acme, being deeper through from stem to blossom ends. It is a constant bearer, "holding up" its size on till the frosts kill the vines."[2]
His sixth tomato introduction, it was bred and introduced by A. W. Livingston in 1886.[2] Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

  2. "Livingston and the Tomato: Being the History of Experiences in Discovering the Choice Varieties Introduced by Him with Practical Instructions for Growing," A. W. Livingston, 1893, pages 31-33.

Although the name of this variety contains a modern company's name, the seed we are offering is in no way sourced from, "owned by" or connected with that company. The name is simply the historically accurate, common name for the variety giving credit to the seedsman that originally released it.
