Formerly grown by New England’s Algonquins, this squash is now very rare. Like most of First Nations’ varieties, its genetic make-up makes it very hardy.
Its oblong shape makes it look a bit like a zucchini. It is also reminiscent of the Long Pie pumpkin, but the algonquin pumpkin is a bit smaller. It should be harvested when still green, except where it touches the soil. When this part starts to turn golden, it is time to pick the fruit up and let it ripen indoors, until it turns a nice orange shade.
The flesh tastes like sweet hazelnuts, and is not fibrous. It stores well over winter and keeps ripening after harvest, getting sweeter and sweeter. Makes delicious purées, soups, soufflés, and pies.

Very popular a few generations ago, this winter squash almost disappeared in favor of more productive and standard varieties. Its crooked neck was judged ill-suited for industrial commerce and long distance shipping. To answer the criteria of modern market, the Canada Crookneck was used to develop the Butternut variety.
But Canada Crookneck has a unique flavor. Is is listed on Slow Food Ark of Taste. Excellent in soups, exquisite as chips and fries and so sweet it can be used instead of sweet potato in your recipes.
It is slowly making a comeback, thanks to small seed producers. At Terre Promise we hope to grow, save and spread the Canada Crookneck for many years to come!

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.

High-yielding yellow bush bean. Can withstand comparison with the Beurre de Rocquencourt. Delicious long yellow pods with black seeds. Can be eaten when young and tender or as a dry bean. Very productive over a long period of time, the more you pick the more it will give you beans.
This old variety comes from Sainte-Hélène, Kamouraska County, where it has been cultivated since time immemorial by Rollande Labrie (born in 1923) and her family. We are proud to offer it and ensure its preservation.
