Looking for something new to add to the garden? A British mail-order company is now selling a plant that grows tomatoes and potatoes in one.
Thompson & Morgan sells the grafted — not genetically engineered — plants in the United Kingdom for some $24 (or 14.99 pounds). The plant grows up to 500 cherry tomatoes and a “good crop” of potatoes, according to the company.
“The TomTato has been trialled for several years and the end result is far superior than anything I could have hoped for,” Paul Hansord, horticultural director at Thompson & Morgan told the Independent. “Trusses full of tomatoes which have a flavor that makes shop tomatoes inedible, as well as, a good hearty crop of potatoes for late in the season.”
The company uses a tomato plant and potato plant, combined in a pot and grown as one.
