Grafted Tomato Taster Kit consists of three plants, one each of:
Tomato Sweet Million - Deliciously sweet cherry tomato growing on long vines
Tomato Shirley - Customer-favourite, standard-size tomato.
Tomato San Marzano - The classic Italian plum tomato, used all over the world for making sauces, especially passata due to its dry and meaty nature.
Grafted tomato plants make stronger plants, give higher yields and show greater disease resistance.
Grafted Tomatoes have been grown commercially for many years because they:
■ Are much more vigorous, producing larger, stronger plants.
■ Are less susceptible to nutritional disorders.
■ Have greater resistance to pests and diseases.
■ Produce fruit earlier (by 2-3 weeks).
■ Give higher yields of top quality fruit over a longer period compared with normal plants.
■ Are particularly recommended for greenhouse growing, especially if planted directly into the soil.
Many of us have small gardens with growing space at a premium which may mean that we can't rotate crops as much as we would like.
Grafted stems are held together with a clip until the cell structures knit together producing a strong disease resistant plant. This enables you to plant in the same spot year after year.
Grafting combines a hardy base plant highly resistant to soil-borne disease, grafted onto a variety with superior fruit.
You will be amazed as the plants reach their full potential and produce amazingly healthy plants and bumper crops of delicious tomatoes.
When you receive your tomato plants by post, water lightly, then plant them up in small pots. If the stem tip is bent, rest assured, it will quickly right itself when exposed to daylight to grow straight and upright. Read our blog for more information on why tomato plants do this.
