The smallest tomato you will ever eat!
Currant tomatoes are cousins with the common tomato we all know, both originally from Central and South America. The plants grow clusters of several tiny sweet fruits. The seeds we are selling however have a peculiar story…
Léon was a grumpy gardener who didn’t like kids. Always a smoke between his lips, he would chase them with the back of his hand whenever they got too close to his parcel in Montreal community garden. Yet the kids couldn’t help but want some of his tomatoes, which were shining under the sun just like rubies. Truth be told, Léon didn’t really like anyone regardless of age… but how did we love his tomatoes! So, under the full moon (for real!), I sneaked into the garden, and stole a couple seeds.
Ever since I’ve been growing them, and my kids love them!

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 ».
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!

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.
Fruits weigh between 80 and 100 grams and have a diameter of 6 to 8 cm.
Natural cross between the Green Zebra and an unknown tomato. Red round fruits with yellow stripes grow in clusters. Very productive and uniform in quality, with sweet juicy flesh.
