Grafted Tomato Plants!




Has anyone grown grafted toms,if so?

Were they purchased from a local garden centre or sent away for?

What varieties grown?

How did they compare against seed sown, both in growth and weight of crop?

Did they crop longer than seed sown plants?

And considering the extra cost, were they worth it?

    I have only bought grafted aubergines and peppers. The former were definitely worth the £4.00 ish that I spent; after you have harvested 4 huge shiny aubergines, you are in profit!image The peppers did not produce so well, they were in a smaller pot so perhaps that was my fault, the fruit were not large, neither was the plant compared to ones I have seen growing in South Africa.

    I might try a grafted tomato in the greenhouse this year, the last 2 years have been pretty dreadful for toms. I bought both plants at a local garden centre.

    Bought 2 grafted toms from GC last year. Said were suitable for growing outside. Which I did! Also grew several other toms from seed. Grafted plants grew to be ENORMOUS. Alas. Crop from gafted and seed plants was equally dreadful !! Perhaps would be more successful in a better year.

    I once grew grafted tomatoes, but they weren't worth it, the ordinary ones caught up.There was a post about this once before, but I haven't discovered how to find it yet.

    • Yes I have grown grafted tomatoes for a few years now with outstanding success & actually ate last one after Christmas. Sold pounds for a church hall project.
  • As above! Try Dobies or Unwins as can vouch for them but any other supplier of grafted toms would be OK.

    I think a lot depends on the weather if you grow them outside. I'm sticking to seeds. Love Sungold, have sweet tooth!
