In the 1950s Father Armand Savignac fell so in love with this plant that he abandoned all other varieties of tomato and devoted himself to the Savignac, leading to a surge in its popularity. 70 years later, this tomato is in danger of going extinct along with so many other heirloom varieties. Connect with Canadian history and help in the fight to preserve tomato diversity by growing Savignac tomatoes.
