The Savignac Tomato: It was born in the 1940s, thanks to the good care of Brother Armand Savignac, of the Saint-Viateur congregation in Lanaudière. The latter, suffering from digestive disorders and a degenerative muscle disease, decided to become a vegetarian, a rarity for the time. He also dabbled in organic horticulture, growing his own fruits and vegetables. His business also allowed him to pay for his medical treatment. Co-founder at 75 of the Movement for Organic Horticulture, he finally died at the venerable age of 95. Not bad for someone who had been condemned to live under the yoke of illness!... - Complete history of the Savignac Tomato to discover on your linen!
