What is a Grafted Plant?
Grafted vegetables are created when the top part of one plant (the scion) is attached to the root system of a separate plant (the rootstock). The rootstock contributes vigor and disease resistance while the scion is chosen for fruit flavor and quality. Grafting has been used in agriculture for centuries to improve plant health and yield (fruit trees and grape vines are two familiar examples). Grafted vegetables are currently widespread in Asia and Europe among produce growers and are gaining popularity in the US, especially with organic farmers. Our plants are grafted by hand in a unique, carefully controlled environment using innovative methods recently developed here in Oregon.

Grafted vegetables help solve common garden problems. Vigorous rootstock enables more effective uptake of water and nutrients, and increases plants' resistance to pests or disease and tolerance to temperature extremes and drought. This allows commercial growers — and now home gardeners — to plant earlier and harvest longer. Healthier, stronger plants also mean greatly reduced pesticide use and more yield. With grafted tomato plants, even gardeners in challenging climates can enjoy ample harvests of America's favorite garden crop.

Grafted plants are drop-dead gorgeous
Statuesque, strong, and loaded with flowers and fruit, they remain beautifully healthy and disease-resistant when the same non-grafted varieties oftentimes struggle.

Benefits of Grafted plants over non-grafted plants
• Better quality crops and increased fruit production
• Increased water and nutrient uptake
• Extended harvests
• Increased disease resistance including resistance to early and late blight and blossom end rot in tomatoes
• Increased overall plant vigor
• Increased tolerance to environmental stresses (extremes in heat and cold, salinity, etc.)

Already picked 2 nice sized cukes from this plant. Many more on the vine. Flavor is a little off for me, almost grassy in flavor. Going to try a couple more before deciding if I like them or not.
Welcome Surprise from colder-than-normal Michigan

It's been a colder-than-usual Michigan summer. Just harvested though my first Gigi bite cucumber at the 8" x 1" mark. EXCELLENT thus far. This is my first experience with a grafted cucumber. If this keeps up will do again next year. I believe it will be worth the up-front expense of a grafted plant. Nice job Territorial.
A Winner!

I have grown grafted tomatoes for the past three years, but this is the first time I try a cucumber. My experience this year with two grafted "Giga Bites" cucumbers meets and exceeds all my expectations. Very vigorous growth, very prolific, dark green shiny skin and tasty flesh. Very resistant to the powdery mildew that has pretty much wiped out my other cucumbers and melons. Today, October 20, there are still quite a few cucumbers in various stages of development. Even a couple of female blossoms, although I don't see any pollinators any more. Each plant has several vines growing on a west-facing brick wall to a height of at least 13 feet. I harvested several cucumbers with a pruning pole. I am definitely doing this again next year.
