1051 - Alacrity 60-70 days, det., regular leaf, 4-8 oz round red fruit. Almost multiflora, heat will limit fruitset, tasty, early. The oldest named variety in Canada

About 1900 W. J. Macoun at the Dominion Experimental Farm in Ottawa started making selections from Sparks’ Earliana, mainly for early maturity and heavy yield. This selection was carried on for about 10 years and resulted in Alacrity, the first tomato cultivar named in Canada. It produces medium to large red fruits and is mid-season in maturity.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
