Named after the town of Chioggia in the Venetian Lagoon, this beet can be eaten raw or cooked. Delicious sweet taste and a pleasure for the eyes, with its distinctive concentric red and white stripes. Will loose some of its color once cooked, but is perfect for carpaccio. Leaves and stems are edible too.
Developed in Italy before 1841, the Chioggia derives from another traditional variety, the Bassano beet, named after a town in the Veneto region. The Chioggia beet was introduced in the United States before 1865 and furthermore perfected by seed producers.

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!

On the outside, with its pale white skin, this ball-shaped radish looks boring. But inside awaits a splash of pink-colored flesh, truly like a watermelon.
Crisp and sweet taste, milder than many radishes. It is better to peel the hard skin. Ideal for carpaccio, can be eaten raw, roasted or stewed. Great if you wish to cause a sensation or want the children to discover radishes !

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.

Heirloom variety introduced to the Saint Lawrence River Valley by French settlers in the 17th Century. It is still eaten today and makes delicious pea soup. High yielding plants. They will need trellising and can grow up to 1 meter tall.
The Potager d'Antan reports this story : « According to an old European tradition dating back from the 15th Century, Hubertus, patron saint of hunters, was associated with the pea soup.
To make a long story short, during his lifetime, in the 7th Century, Hubert went astray, hunted on Good Friday, and while pursuing a stag, he had a vision in which he saw the animal with a crucifix between its antlers and heard a voice enjoining him to lead a holy life.
Hubertus later performed many miracles, evangelised pagans in distant countries, and erected temples dedicated to the Lord. He died on May 30, 727. His relics were translated on November 3, 743. His feast day is November 3 in Belgium and May 30 in France.
In memory of Saint Hubert, European settlers in Quebec supposedly kept the name of this pea variety, used in the preparation of the hunting soup ».
