Grow the Crop of a Lifetime with this Grafted Tomato!

Grafted for more vigorous, disease-resistant, productive growth.
Have you tried growing grafted tomatoes yet? We have to say: we're impressed with their performance! Not only are these plants more productive, the fruit tends to be larger and the flavor richer. They are well worth a try this season!

Here's how grafting works: in the case of Amish Paste, the top part of Amish Paste is attached to the root system of another, more vigorous variety. We have chosen a variety that is resistant to a wide range of tomato diseases, including Fusarium Wilt races 1 and 2, Nematodes, Fusarium Crown Root Rot, Corky Root Rot, Tobacco Mosaic Virus, and Verticillium Wilt. Unbeatable protection!

When you receive your plants, you'll see the grafting site, covered with a clear plastic splint. (As the plant grows, the splint will pop off; no action required on your part!) Plant and grow your tomato like any other, with one exception: if any branches appear BELOW the graft site, prune them off, because they won't be Amish Paste.

Grafted tomatoes are so vigorous and productive that many people prune them down to 2 or 3 main branches to train up a trellis or other support, but this isn't necessary as long as you have the space for the full plant. Just make sure you give the plant plenty of support, and keep it well-aerated. (If the branches become too dense in the center of the plant, do a little judicious pruning.) All our grafted tomatoes are indeterminate, meaning they continue to grow and produce all season long. So find a sturdy support and watch this plant take off!

Amish Paste is a plum tomato originally grown near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It sets bright red, yummy 8- to 12-ounce oblong fruit with a juicy, meaty flavor. There is plenty of authentic, old-fashioned tomato tang in this delectable variety!

We definitely recommend that you give grafted tomatoes a whirl this season. They're fascinating to grow, and the results are simply delicious! Pack of 3.
