The TomTato: Plant which produces both potatoes and tomatoes launched in UK
Plant can grow sweet cherry tomatoes while producing white potatoes

A plant which produces both potatoes and tomatoes, described as a “veg plot in a pot”, has been launched in the UK.
The TomTato can grow more than 500 sweet cherry tomatoes while producing white potatoes.
Horticultural mail order company Thompson & Morgan, which is selling the plants for £14.99 each, said the hybrid plants were individually hand-crafted and not a product of genetic engineering.
Grafted potato-tomato plants have already been produced in the UK, but Thompson & Morgan says this is the first time they have been successfully produced commercially.

We’re all about combining potatoes and tomatoes together when cooking—but the development of a new plant, the TomTato, has us a little weirded out. The TomTato, now available in the U.K., is a tomato and potato plant in one. Both the tomatoes and potatoes ripen at the same time.
Thompson & Morgan, the horticulture company behind the TomTato, says the the tomatoes are sweeter than most supermarket varieties. The TomTato is not genetically modified—it is a grafted plant, meaning that tissue from one plant is attached to tissue from another.
A different version called the Potato Tom, made by another company, is available in New Zealand starting in October.
