Rare, French heirloom. Red fruit with greenish collar, 120 to 180 grams, round, slightly flattened.
A rare heirloom variety from France dating from the beginning of the 20th century. Selected by Mr Perdrigeon, a market gardener in the Paris region, developed from "Belle de Massy".
Red fruit with greenish collar, 120 to 180 grams, round, slightly flattened with the beginnings of ribbing on the shoulders.
Firm, full flesh with a balanced, fragrant flavour. Dwarf variety with small development not exceeding 1.0 m. Very good medium to early production.
Description taken from the Vilmorin-Andrieux catalogue of 1904: "A vigorous, semi-early and very productive variety, selected by Mr. Perdrigeon, a specialist grower in the Paris region, and recently propagated in cultivation.
Very dwarf plant, not exceeding 1 metre; very thick stem; smooth, very divided foliage, with purplish petioles. Fruits are not very ribbed, in bunches, large, thick, somewhat like those of the "Queen of the Early Birds", with firm and delicate flesh that does not split as it approaches maturity. - A little less early than the latter variety and the "very early outdoor tomato", the Perdrigeon tomato nevertheless ripens very early and is particularly recommended for the beauty and good conservation of its fruits.
