You say potato, I say tomato – Get ready for the TomTato

The TomTato is a grafted plant that produces both potatoes and tomatoes. The concept has been worked on for over 15 years, but Thompson & Morgan are the first to succeed in producing these plants commercially.

Tomatoes are members of the potato family and are naturally compatible with potatoes. There’s no genetic modification, it’s all safe and natural.

The TomTato tomato variety is a sweet cherry tomato with a Brix level of 10.2, which basically means they are sweeter than average supermarket tomatoes and great for cooking The potatoes are a typical white-fleshed variety, great for baking and steaming. The plants are suitable for growing both indoors and outdoors and easy to grow in a patio pot, on an allotment or on the vegetable patch.
