Gulf State Market (Livingston's Strain) Certified Naturally Grown Seed
80 days, indeterminate — 'Gulf State Market' was developed for harvesting in the immature state for shipping to distant markets.  As its name implies, it was intended for the regions "touching the Gulf of Mexico"[1] where it is typically four to five days earlier than 'Globe'.  It does very well in other parts of the county and has been a popular home garden variety over the years. The pink fruits reach up to twenty ounces and are nice and mild flavored.

'Gulf State Market' was found by Walter Richards of Crystal Springs, Mississippi in 1917 as a single plant in a field of 'Early Detroit' tomatoes.  It was released by D. M. Ferry & Company shortly thereafter in 1921.[1,2]  Our strain is Livingston Seed Company's selection which we grew out from USDA ARS accession number NSL 193978.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Informational Sources:
  1. Descriptions of Principle Types of American Varieties of Tomatoes", USDA, October, 1933.
  2. "Tomato Varieties," by Gordon Morrison, Michigan State College A.E.S., Special Bulletin 290, April 1938

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.
