Savignac (Dufresne) tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Savignac')
Plant about 2 to 2.5 meters high. Fruits 10 cm in diameter weighing between 180 and 300 grams. Smooth pink-red skin, juicy and sweet pinkish flesh. Adapted to cool climates and short seasons. Discovered in the 1930s by a grower from the Joliette region named Dufresne, it was later perfected by Father Armand Savignac of the Clercs de Saint-Viateur. This monk adopted a vegetarian-type diet to stem his chronic digestive disorders, combined with a muscular deformity called "torque", and began to cultivate several varieties in his garden, including Dufresne.
