Grafted Vegetable Plants

Grafted Ketchup 'n' Fries™

Grafted Ketchup 'n' Fries™

YTG140

Potatoes and Tomatoes harvested off the same blimey plant! This exciting grafted combination was first introduced to U.K. home gardeners, and was a smashing success. Now this same tomato/potato grafted combination known as Ketchup 'n' Fries is being exclusively offered mail order to American gardeners by Territorial Seed Company. This thoroughly tested duo is the ultimate container plant, but will do equally well in the open garden.

ABOVE GROUND: Tomatoes
You can expect harvests of over 500 red cherry tomatoes with a Brix level of 10.2. Makes for delicious snacking, salad toppers, drying and some very sweet ketchup!
BELOW GROUND: Potatoes
Incredibly you'll be making your French fries from delicious white potatoes. They also taste great baked, mashed, or roasted.

Tomatoes are members of the potato family and are therefore naturally compatible with potatoes. Each Ketchup 'n' Fries plant is hand-grafted to create this unique double cropping novelty. There is no genetic modification—it's an all-natural process.
Plants come with complete growing instructions (not that you really need them as TomTatos® are easy to grow) and a certification of authenticity to demonstrate proof to your astonished friends. They are going to think Ketchup 'n' Fries are the Bees Knees!
Ketchup 'n' Fries TomTatos are shipped in 2 1/2 inch pots in our custom designed plant shipping box so you can be sure your plant will arrive in perfect shape. Brilliant!

PLEASE READ: Available only within the contiguous US.

Transplants are shipped via FedEx. A shipping charge based on location and number of plants is calculated during the checkout process.

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.)

Our plants are available individually in 2 1/4 inch pots! At Territorial you don't have to buy 6 plants of each variety. You can mix and match your plants just the way you want.

When you order our transplants, you will receive the same quality and selection that our customers have learned to expect at our retail store. For gardeners who are pressed for time or prefer to have Territorial start their plants, our selection of vegetables, flowers, and herbs is an easy and economical way to fill your garden with summer goodness. Plants are available individually. For the best shipping value, order any combination of 6 plants.

Great tomatoes-no potatoes

The tomatoes were fantastic flavored! There weren't a lot, but enough. NO potatoes however - not even a start. Going to try again once more this year to see if we have better luck.
Ugh

One little stick of a plant about 3 ft. high with no side shoots. Only 9 small tomatoes (2 oz. total), and so far no more coming (mid-august). That translated into $160. per pound! I don't have much hope for many potatoes.

what a treat for me and the grandchildren. Every night my granddaughter picked a basket full of tomatoes until we had so many even after giving them away. I managed the determination in late August to cut the plant to size and waited for the potatoes to grow. And grow they did. What looks on our faces to actually see the good size potatoes & tomatoes we grew. I estimate the value of the tomatoes at give away prices of 1.00 a basket would be about 25.00 and 10.00 in potatoes. Thank you territorial.

We bought one last year an were inundated with tomatoes up to the first frosts. More than half of them we gave away as they were to good to throw away. I just ordered another for this year. Roll on Summer salads! Wasn't too worried about the spuds, but they made a good mash. BTW, The price here is half of what one i saw on a shopping channel for the same plants last month.
Don't buy

Loved the idea and the tomatoes. Follwed the instructions to a t- zero potatoes. Totally not worth the price tag. After reading all the similar reviews I think Territorial should refund the price. Thinking twice about ordering this year.

I grew this plant in a very large container (18" diameter). The plant had loads of tomatoes and I was so excited to dig up the potatoes. Sadly, there were zero potatoes. Too expensive of a plant to get only tomatoes. Great idea though :)

The plant grew well and the tomatoes had an excellent taste. However, we didn't get any potatoes! Followed all instructions to a tee! Figured it was a novelty...but want to advise you it's not worth it- we wasted our money.

We spent the entire summer nursing our plants and wondered why there were no blossoms at all. Suddenly, a few weeks ago (beginning of Sept) we started to see flowers! Now we have loads of tomatoes waiting to turn red. I hope the potatoes yield a nice crop as well. seeing how they grow, we wont be as scared next year when we buy a lot more!

I was excited to try this plant just because the name was so cool! But .... although the cherry tomatoes were good, FOUR small potatoes does not make this worth the high price tag.

Glad I ordered this item which on first thought would be a novelty but then I've realized the crop late in August and I can't wait to order it again next season! Thanks Territorial Seed for giving this awesome product a try, it's a hit with my family and friends.

I didn't get my plant in the ground right away, but it is growing like crazy, I can't count all the blossoms and little tomatoes all over it. I can't wait to see how successful the potatoes are. If it does well I would buy several next time.
WOW
