Hello Carolyn,

thank you for your posting, too.

Well, I have read the thread.

But: Livingston released Acme in 1875. And the German Company Ernst Benary sold the seeds in 1881 as a new variety of America. At the end of 19th century it took a long time to order seeds and deliver to Germany. So I don`t think, that so many other companys copied Acme and sold to Europe. So there is a good chance, that Benary ordered originally seeds by Livingston.

Also there are no descriptions for LYC 291 at IPK Gatersleben.

So who will know, if LYC 291 is not the true Livingston's Acme?
Best wishes,
