Origin: U.S. – 1883

Released by Alexander Livingston, the famed American tomato breeder, Favorite was his attempt to offer a tomato that was conducive to canning, which at the time was a burgeoning new industry.  This variety is a perfect example of a commercial heirloom. The round 6-10 oz fruits are deep red and uniform. The flesh is solid and firm and the flavor is terrific.
