Grafted Vegetable Plants

Grafted Tomato Plant-Brandywine

Grafted Tomato Plant-Brandywine


The quintessential heirloom and Taste-Off winner. Single variety.
85 days. This winner of Territorial Seed Company's 2002 Great Northwest Tomato Taste-Off has the flavor to which all other tomatoes are compared. An indeterminate, potato-leaf variety with a sweet, rich, slightly spicy flavor. The somewhat squat, lobed fruit are large, up to 7 inches across. Not a heavy-yielding tomato, Brandywine is best staked or caged. A long-season tomato, but this is one of the earliest strains we've trialed at London Springs.

PLEASE READ: Available only within the contiguous US.

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.)

Grafted tomato

2013 I bought one grafted tomato. What a huge mistake, I should have bought them all! When my cherry tomatoes were still turning from green to red, my grafted tomatoes plant had 30 maters, the first 2 already eaten in late June on BLT sandwiches. I will actively seek out all sources of grafted tomatoes and ALWAYS have them in my garden!
Low production, excellent flavor

Seattle area is not great for tomatoes, but we had a fabulous summer this year. I was disappointed with this grafted plant's production, especially in light of the growing season we experienced, but the flavor of these beasts was incredible. New raised bed, moderately good soil, appropriate watering throughout dry summer, but the plant yielded only three ripe tomatoes before the end of September. I picked four additional fruits for indoor ripening. Other grafted plants in the same raised bed and soil gave amazing yields. This observation of lower-than-expected yield was also observed by an experienced gardener friend in Portland this year. I am debating whether or not to plant these again next year, due to the low yield. Three "stars" given for this because of the parallel observation from Portland, suggesting my low yield was not an anomaly.

For the second year I have used your grafted plants. This year one of the Brandywine tomatoes weighed in at over 2# with several others real close to it. Will use these again next year along with the Kellog Breakfast tomatoes. Both are absolutely wonderfull.
