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 ».
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 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.
Beautiful golden-orange skin with yellow striped flesh. Doesn't bleed and will not stain your fingers. Delicious sweet taste, raw or cooked, as you like it. Keeps its colour when cooked. All parts are edible, the buttery green leaves and yellow stems are almost as good as the gold root.
Very easy to grow, only requires love.
