Can you really grow tomatoes and potatoes on the same plant? Well, actually, you can - and it's not a new thing - and it's called the TomTato.
Both tomato and potato are members of the Solanum family so they are genetically similar.
Getting the plant to crop both varieties has been achieved by simply grafting a cherry tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) plant onto a potato rootstock (Solanum tuberosum).
Thompson and Morgan, the company behind the promotion, say that the plant will achive over 500 cherry tomatoes with a Brix level of 10.2 - that's apparently sweeter than supermarket tomatoes. Potato yields are claimed to be up to 2kg of white potatoes
Thompson and Morgan say concept has been worked on for over 15 years, but this is the first time that plants have been successfully produced commercially.
Each TomTato plant is grafted by hand without any genetic modification.
TomTato can be grown indoors or outdoors, in a patio pot, on your allotment or on the vegetable patch.
