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!

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.
