  • Description
  • Laucolo
  • These tomato illustrations represent ancestral or open-pollinated varieties, handmade in watercolor and ink.

    Here is what is inscribed at the bottom of the poster:
    Ancestral, inheritance, patrimonial or heirloom these synonyms describe tomatoes whose seeds belong to the public domain, are open pollinated (reproduce identically from year to year) and are cultivated by at least one generation (50 to 100 years). These seeds are essential for the maintenance of food genetic biodiversity and are generally saved by families, communities or organizations dedicated to this cause.

    All drawings were first created in ink to be then scanned and colored on the computer.


    Printed in Quebec | 11 x 14 inches | Recycled FSC certified cardboard.
