Thompson & Morgan Announces Another Major Horticultural Breakthrough – The TomTato™
Specially hand-grafted plants producing both potatoes and tomatoes will soon be available to UK home gardeners for the first time. Home gardeners will be able to grow tomatoes and potatoes on one plant. This concept has been developed over 15 years, but this is the first time that plants have been successfully produced commercially. Tomatoes are members of the potato family (Solanaceae) and are, therefore, naturally compatible with potatoes. Each plant is hand-grafted to create this unique double-cropping feature. There’s no genetic modification – it’s an all-natural and completely safe process.
Above the ground – gardeners can pick cherry tomatoes with a Brix level of 10.2 – sweeter than supermarket varieties. Below the ground – gardeners will find a nice big crop of white potatoes which are incredibly versatile. They can be boiled, mashed, roasted or made into chips.
TomTato™ can be grown inside or outside, in a large patio pot or 40 litre bag, on the allotment or in the vegetable patch.
