Abstract

‘Quinte’ (ST-19) is a midseason, large, firm, crimson-colored tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum Mill.). It was developed in the early 1970s to replace ‘Moira’. Named after the Bay of Qunite, it is now extensively grown in eastern Ontario, Canada, and the northeastern United States, especially in areas where Verticillium wilt (Verticillium alboatrum Reinke & Berth, and V. dahliae Kleb.) is a problem. The fruit is suitable to the fresh-market and processed-juice industries.
