Livingston’s Globe Tomato
Livingston’s Globe tomato is a three-inch rose-red fruit with a good yield. It was created when Livingston’s New Stone and Ponderosa were crossed. Pretty and pale, it kicks you in the mouth with a lot of flavor but the taste doesn’t linger. High in acidity, it is sour and very juicy with an old-fashioned taste. This could be a good canning tomato because of its high acidity and may be good as pizza sauce -- striking enough to support ingredients while holding its own. Livingston’s Globe won first prize in 1906 Topsfield Fair and was also part of another prize-winning exhibit in 1985.
