Redfield Beauty

A very old, classic heirloom from the 1800’s that is pale pink in color. The smooth but flattened globes range from 6-12 oz and 3-4” in size. They grow in clusters of 3-5 on vigorous plants that have great production. They are good for slicing with a great flavor, having a good balance of acids and sweetness. 

Similar to Eva Purple Ball, the fruits are lighter in color, the plants are not as large and the fruits also drop to the ground when ripe.


From Victory Seeds:

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). And 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.
