Tomatoes. Potatoes. They require two separate plants to grow – right? Well, actually… wrong. Your eyes do not deceive you, that really is a picture of a plant that is growing tomatoes AND potatoes. World we introduce to you, the TomTato!
Can’t believe it’s possible?
The TomTato plant…
As both tomatoes and potatoes are members of the nightshade family (Solanaceae), you’ll be pleased to hear that, the TomTato is not a plant that has been genetically-modified. Tomatoes and potatoes are in fact compatible to be specially grown together. And it’s not a new concept – in fact plants of this nature have been around for more than 15 years.
But any double-crop plant from the past has always compromised on one thing – taste. Not this TomTato! Thompson & Morgan is convinced that this is the tastiest version yet after running extensive trials. Juicy tomatoes with ample flavour and delicious potatoes that are hugely versatile in the kitchen. You can expect a decent yield off of your plant too – it offers an impressive harvest of more than 500 cherry tomatoes and up to 2kg of delicious white potatoes. What could be better?
Whatever you think about the TomTato, one plant that can make both chips and ketchup to go with them is definitely an interesting one. And, it is something that could definitely come in useful if you’re short on space in your garden!
