Heirloom Grafted Tomato Trio Annual Plant Collection
The Very Best Heirlooms -- Now in Grafted Form!
First, a word or two about grafting. Here's how it works: the top part of the tomato variety you want (in the case of this collection, either Mortage Lifter, Cherokee Purple, or Pineapple) 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 the true variety.
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!
In this collection you get 3 varieties: Mortgage Lifter, with meaty, mild 2½- to 4-pound pinkish red fruits developed in Depression-era West Virginia. Cherokee Purple, the sharply tangy 16-ounce purple fruits grown by Native Americans more than 120 years ago. And Pineapple, the wonderfully aromatic beefsteak type with red-striped golden skin on fruit weighing up to 2 pounds.
Whether you're new to growing grafted tomatoes or returning to these powerhouses after a successful season last year, you're going to be wowed by the 3 varieties in this collection. Get ready for great eating! Pack of 3.
