This ancient squash is rather unique. It originates from Australia, from where it was imported in the 1930s. Triamble squashes are light steel blue and grow three distinct lobes; this uncommon look makes it a nice decoration. But do not be mistaken, its taste is just as enjoyable as its look! The flesh is orange, sweet and of high quality, ideal in soups or purées.

Also known as the "Montreal Market Muskmelon" or "Montreal Nutmeg Melon". This mythical green flesh melon with a nutmeg flavor has almost disappeared.
The earliest records come from the Jesuits, who cultivated this variety in the Montreal Plain in 1684. According to the Potager d'Antan : "this melon went through many selections during the 17th Century, before being introduced under the name "Montreal Melon", in 1870. In the 1880s, it was listed as one of the best seller in New England by American seed company Burpee".
Very popular at the beginning of the 1900s and until the 1950s, it was largely commercialized and grown by three families : the Aubin, the Décarie and the Gorman. But lack of labour force, rises in wages and the spreading of the city triggered its decline. As highways paved the island, it slowly faded from our collective memory. When farms vanished from Montreal, it risked being obliterated. Until a journalist found its trace in a seed bank, in the United States.
This melon is a living proof of our seed and food diversity decline. Save your seeds and share them.
Heirloom variety. Listed on Slow Food Canada's Ark of Taste.
Pkt : 12 seeds.
Plant approximately 1,20 meters tall. Fruits between 150 and 250 grams.
This tomato is a cross between Black Krim and Zapotec tomatoes. It combines the best traits of these two heirloom classics. The flavor of the Black Ruffle is exceptional. The red purple fruit is pleated like an accordion. It is a rare variety really worth discovering.
Fruits weigh between 35 and 40 grams and have a diameter of approximately 3 cm.
Very productive pale yellow cherry tomato. You will enjoy the feel of this hairy little one (if you have nothing better to do than to caress your tomatoes before putting them in your salad, obviously). Very very sweet!
Never did I see it with my own eyes, but it is said there is a striking similarity between this tomato and the animal anatomy.
This middle-sized beefsteak tomato has a rich taste, and a right balance between juice and 'meat'. The latter resembles the flesh of the Oxheart tomato. We're in for play on words with this one.
Pkt : 35 seeds.
Plant approximately 2 to 2,5 meters tall. Fruits weigh between 180 and 300 grams and have a diameter of approximately 10 cm. Smooth red-rose skin, sweet and juicy flesh. Performs well in cool climates and short seasons.
Discovered in the 1930s in the Joliette area by a farmer named Dufresne. It was given to Armand Savignac of the Clerics of Saint Viator. Due to chronic digestive disorders and a rare malformation, Savignac became a vegetarian and began to grow vegetables. Among different varieties cultivated in his garden was the Savignac tomato.
