‘Minuit a Montreal’ Tomato
Dark as the streets of Montreal deep into the night. Early, just as the arrival of winter over Quebec.
Easy, to be grown in the field as well as in a pot on a Plateau balcony.
Born in our field from a cross between 2 varieties, Black Crime and Teton de Venus, this tomato kept the dark colour of the former and the shape and density of the latter. It however yields much earlier than its parents, and produces much more.
The variety is quite stable, but might still display some irregular shapes. We are keeping up our breeding work with the hope of creating a perfect tomato.
The fruits are slightly smaller than a tennis ball. Our team carried a taste test and found a …steak flavour! The foliage is regular, and the plant is not prone to diseases.

Pink Canabec tomatoes give pink, round, middle-sized fruits. This tomato was developped in 1975 by the agronomist Robert Doucet at the Saint-Hyacinthe Agriculture Research Center. It was created specially to suit Quebec regions' climate. It is therefore a productive, early-yielding variety that's quite compact for an indeterminate tomato.

Plant approximately 1 meter tall. Round fruits with a diameter of approximately 8 cm. Rare tomato variety. Firm flesh with an exquisite taste. All red tomatoes wish they were Plourde.
Grown since 1925 in Saint-Alexandre de Kamouraska, Quebec, by Aurélius Plourde and his family. Handed to Jeannot Pelletier and then to René Paquet. The latter cultivated and selected it before introducing it in Seeds of Diversity Catalog. According to the man who saved this Quebec heirloom : « The Plourde is an old beauty who forgot its own identity ».
The farmer got confused and messed up, but in the process created this mix of different varieties of tomatoes grown on our farm. Includes: Mémé de Beauce, Oncle Tom, Petit Moineau, Sun Drop, Téton de Vénus, Poil Blanc, Savignac, Plourde, Black Cherry and Black Ruffle. For diversity fans.
