Late Maturing


Black Russian

The best variety of our “black” tomatoes is Black Russian, which gives a heavy yield of large flattened well-shaped fruits. Unfortunately it is somewhat late but the flavour is wonderful.

Clare’s Tomato

Clare’s Tomato came to us without a specific name from Jim’s Aunt Clare. It seems to be similar to something out there called “Mystery Keeper.” An excellent storage tomato, but very different in color. Plants have dense foliage hiding the incredible fruit production of this variety. When finally ripe and cut open, insides are quite red in color, compared to the outside which is often a lighter pink/yellow/cream colour. Keeps for months after harvest, some reporting having kept a few fruits until Easter!

Savignac, which is also known as Dufresne, was given by Raymond Dufresne of Joliette to Frère Armand Savignac CSV (Clerics of St. Viator) in the 1930‘s. The indeterminate plants are mid-season in maturity, and give a good yield of 3″ fruits.
