Description
Golden Queen Slow Food USA - Ark of Taste Certified Naturally Grown Seed
78 days, indeterminate — Introduced in 1882.  The standard catalog description over the years claim have been fairly consistent. Characteristically described as the "Queen of all the Yellows," "Of superior flavor," "it is solid, always smooth, entirely free from ridges."5, 13   The fruits are early, a good size, beautiful and excellent for slicing.

Referring to the history of the 'Golden Queen,' in his own words in his book entitled "Livingston and the Tomato", he writes, "In one of the county fairs which I often attended for the purpose of selling seeds, I saw a very pretty yellow tomato. As I was examining it closely, and admiring it, the owner saw fit to make a present of one of them, which I highly prized, and took special care to preserve, test and improve. I had it a number of years before I released it; but in 1882 I thought it advisable to give it a wider circulation, and so advertised it extensively under the above name."3

Several companies are selling yellow fruited tomatoes called "Golden Queen." Our seed was grown out from stock obtained from the National Seed Storage Lab and is true to the original descriptions. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
