Tomato Mon Plaisir (Solanum lycopersicum "Mon Plaisir")
In 2016, a lady approached me at a Seed Festival, telling me that her mother-in-law had a tomato called Mon Plaisir which had long since ceased to be available in the catalogues, but whose seeds she kept and cultivated years later. years. We exchange contact details, then I forget the discussion until a few months later, when I receive a letter in the mail. Inside, a beautiful card with a paper on which were pasted about fifteen seeds. Those of the Mon Plaisir lost tomato. Here is what Ms. Frappier told me when I contacted her following her letter: "We used to order our seeds through the catalogs of WHPerron, and another company. I believe it was called Norseco. We produced tomatoes in greenhouses in Abitibi, in Matamic, near Lasarre. It was the Frappier greenhouses, in 1976. We made a few plants to sell, but it was mostly market gardening. I really liked these tomatoes- there they were making long bunches of beautiful cherry tomatoes. We stopped production in the early 2000s, and I would say I had been saving my seeds for 20-25 years already, because the variety didn't appear. no longer in any catalogue. I couldn't find it anywhere. I think it was replaced by the Sweet 100 variety, or Sweet mignon. I tried it, but I much preferred the Mon Plaisir.";So we the pleasure of making it available in our turn. Thanks to the Frappier family for saving this variety. Thanks to René Paquet for providing us with a vintage photo from the 1987 Semences Laval catalogue.
