Big is beautiful, well definitely if you are a beefsteak tomato. This is the first truly blight resistant & variety of the beefsteak world. It's a vigorous grower and a reliable cropper! Harvest June-September.
How are plants grafted? Two plants are grown simultaneously: a tasty fruiting variety and a super strong rootstock. The tops of the fruiting variety and the super-strong rootstock are carefully and skilfully removed by hand using a small blade to slice at an angle across each stem. The rootstock bottom and the top of the fruiting plant are then grafted together using a special clip which drops off naturally as the plant grows.
Please note: With regards to the nature of the blight resistance, plants can still show infection (up to 15-20%) of leaves, stems etc. without effecting fruit quality or yield. The plants having the resistance to be able to grow away from the attack. ALSO, 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.
