Redfield Beauty Certified Naturally Grown Seed

90 days, indeterminate — Also known as 'Hastings' Redfield Beauty', the fruits are beautiful, smooth, globe to slightly oblate-shaped, weighing six to twelve ounces, pink in color and are borne in clusters of three to five tomatoes. Excellent flavor, mild but slightly tart. Good slicing variety.

Some vendors state that 'Redfield Beauty' was a selection from 'Livingston Beauty' but we have not found documentation to support this claim. As a matter of fact, in 1890, Hastings seemed to be tired of hearing this statement and refuted that the two company's 'Beauty' tomatoes not the same (refer to the scan in the photos above).

In 1894 they stated, "For five years this splendid variety has been grown by thousands of our customers in all southern states," indicating that it was released before 1889. It was prominently featured on several of their catalog covers, here is a link to their 1923 H. G. Hastings Seed Annual.

Our original seed was USDA, ARS accession number NSL 27430. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
