80 days, indeterminate — The regular leaf plants of Livingston's 'Beauty' are vigorous, dense, and productive. Its fruit are a deep pink color, average four to eight ounces in weight, are smooth-skinned with some minor ribbing, and as the name implies, very beautiful.

As described by Alexander W. Livingston, 'Beauty' tomato fruit are, "The greatest of all Purple-Colored Home Market Sorts. Strong Grower, Very Productive. Large, Smooth and Early."[1] In his autobiographical work entitled, "Livingston and the Tomato," Mr. Livingston further describes 'Beauty' as:
"My labor was rewarded with what I claim to be THE CROWN JEWEL OF THEM ALL. It has a stouter stalk than the Acme; heavier foliage, that protects it from the scalding hot sun, is slightly darker in its purple color [ed. pink]; almost, if not equally, as early, and much larger than Acme, being deeper through from stem to blossom ends. It is a constant bearer, "holding up" its size on till the frosts kill the vines."[2]
His sixth tomato introduction, it was bred and introduced by A. W. Livingston in 1886.[2] Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
