We’ve grafted two compatible tomato varieties, chosen for their quality, onto one super-strong rootstock, so you can pick a bountiful crop of two mouth-watering varieties from just one plant! These varieties - F1 Sweet Petite & F1 Orange Paruche - have been selected for their quality and taste and will perform well in a sunny spot outside or in a greenhouse. And not only do you get bigger crops from less space but, because they’ve been grafted for extra vigour, they’ll be ready to pick earlier too! (Cordon variety - one stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear, needs staking and tying in.) Please note: There is a possibility that your plant will include a grafting clip, if it does, this is an integral part of the grafting process and that it should be left in place. As the plant grows it will naturally shrug off the clip.
F1 Sweet Petite - A vigorous-growing cherry tomato producing long, fishbone-shaped trusses of shiny red, deliciously sweet and tasty fruit.
F1 Orange Paruche - The quintessential flavour of summer is captured in these succulent, sweet and flavourful fruit. Orange Paruche excels in productivity and taste with astonishing quantities of brilliant, glowing orange fruit that are irresistible and vitamin-packed. The 1 inch round fruit crowd branched trusses on these vigorous, semi-determinate plants. Plus they're crack resistant too.
- Same type
- Same speed of growth
- Same heavy-cropping nature to produce much bigger crops from less space
What's so good about grafted veg plants? We are revolutionising the home grown vegetable market with our range of grafted vegetable plants! Commercially the grafting method has been used for some time, but we've developed them for the home gardener, and early adopters have had extraordinary results: • Big increases in yield from larger, more vigorous plants • Earlier cropping, yet with sufficient vigour to crop well later in the season • Grow in the greenhouse or outdoors - little or no heating required • Excellent resistance to soil-borne pest and diseases - no more ring culture or grow bags - plant straight in the soil • Greater tolerance to nutritional disorders
Note that grafted tomatoes are not suitable for grow bags. An improved technique for tomato grafting - Since 2012, all our grafted tomato varieties now use this new technique which leads to even earlier and bigger crops, with fruiting beginning lower on the stems, producing at least one extra fruit truss per plant during the season!
