Rose Italian Tomato (Italian Pink)
This dark pink tomato comes from the Lower Saint-Lawrence, more specifically from Rivière-du-Loup. The seeds come from Mrs. Francine Mailloux. She gifted some to René Paquet, who gave them to Michel Richard (Potager d’Antan), who then handed them to me. It is now our turn to share them with you!
René describes this tomato as hefty and says that the indeterminate plant will have high yields of pink-fleshed red-skinned fruits. They will usually weight between 400 and 850 grams, but could be even heavier in some cases.

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.
