Oncle Tom Yellow Tomato
This yellow tomato comes from a friend’s uncle, named Tom (as you might have guessed), whose family had been growing it for several years already. Tom sadly passed away, and we decided to adopt the variety which would otherwise have disappeared. What a nice addition to our garden these gorgeous, sunny, juicy, and tasty tomatoes make! At its heyday between two slices of bread.

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.
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.
