Dwarf Stone

85 days, dwarf — The compact plants of Livingston's 'Dwarf Stone' have sparse, rugose leaf foliage, and produce attractive, red-colored, smooth fruit. Very prolific and the fruit ripen evenly. The fruit are larger than 'Dwarf Champion' but slightly smaller than standard ''Stone'.

Introduced by the Livingston Seed Company in 1902, here is how the announced it in their seed catalog:

Henderson's Crimson Cushion
"We consider this one of our best introductions, and, in our judgment, based on extended experience, one that will meet with general favor; especially will this be true with the class of growers whose gardening is limited to a few acres and where economy in saving land must be taken into account. The strong, upright habit of growth of Livingston's New DWARF Stone admits of very close planting, at least a half closer each way than the distance required for the ordinary vining varieties. In small gardens the plants may be set 18 X 24 inches apart each way and yet produce an abundant crop. The shape of the fruit is very desirable and beautifully smooth, with a good skin, which is free from cracks about the stem end. It is very solid, ripens very evenly, and is of most excellent quality."[1]

Our original seed was sent to us by Craig LeHoullier who obtained it from the National Seed Storage Lab as accession number NSL 5805. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

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. Informational References:
