Determinate


Maskabec

In the 1960’s and ’70’s Roger Doucet led a tomato breeding program in Quebec which tried to breed varieties that tolerated cool nights in spring. Maskabec, from Precocibec X Canabec, is quite early with good cold setting ability. The medium-sized fruits are very red and show little tendency to crack.
