We have A.W. Livingston to thank for this sweet, juicy, uniform size tomato with flavor that we have come to expect from this iconic fruit. Livingston’s Paragon was released in 1870, one of thirty-five varieties that his company introduced between 1870 and 1941. Paragon tastes the way all tomatoes should: sweet, yet not too sweet. Mid-season and mid-sized fruit will brighten your tomato patch with a bit of history.
Plant Information
Introduced by the Livingston Seed Company in 1870, Livingston's Paragon tomatoes were renowned for their flawless round shape and shiny red skin and remain a top choice among home gardeners today. The plants are very hardy, tolerate frosts better than some other varieties, and have a faster ripening time, making them a popular pick for northern gardens with shorter growing seasons. Livingston's Paragon tomatoes are an exceptional slicing variety and their juicy sweetness is ideal for salads, sauces, and canning. Pleasingly plump and perfectly spherical, they're about 4-5 inches in diameter when mature. Like all tomatoes, Livingston's Paragon tomatoes are packed with healthy nutrients, most notably lycopene. Tomatoes have the highest concentration of this powerhouse of an antioxidant, which has been found to aid in the prevention and treatment of cancer, promote cardiovascular health, and help maintain healthy eyes.
