Tomato Livingston’s Favourite

Medium sized red heritage tomato on an indeterminate plant.


From the 2018 Seed Swap.

This is described across the web as a very old variety (introduced in 1883) in the Livingston Seed Catalogue. Said to have good flavour, etc. so we will see how it compares to others.

Unfortunately, it didn’t do anything. 2019 was a bad year for tomatoes for us (I blame the weather but I know I was partly to blame for not looking after the plants properly and letting them grow rampant which meant that the stronger ones outgrew the weaker ones and everything was shaded).

Anyway the result is that I’ve not got any seeds to grow again. I’ll have to keep an eye out to see if there are some to buy.
