A. W. Livingston (1821-98) was a Reynoldsburg, Ohio, tomato seedsman who was the best known developer of tomato varieties in the United States in the nineteenth century. First published in 1893, Livingston and the Tomato contains both descriptions and drawings of the tomato varieties he released. The book features over sixty tomato recipes, including ones for slicing, frying, escalloping, baking, and broiling tomatoes; as well as for tomato toast, custard, soup, pie, preserves, figs, jam, butter, salad, sauce, and omelets.
A Personal Hero
Those of you that know me or have explored the Victory Seeds™ web site know that Alexander W. Livingston is a hero of mine. This is the book that helped me figure out the time line of the tomato variety releases from the Livingston Seed Company and set me on my decade long search for his tomato varieties. It was awesome to be able to read words penned by the father of the modern tomato!
