Hybrid Potato Tomato Plant

Is it a potato? Is it a tomato? No, it's a potatom! Yep, that's right folks, this plant grows potatoes and tomatoes all on the one plant. Actually, it's not so absurd when you think that they are both from the same Nightshade family. These are cherry tomato plants that have been grafted onto potato rootstock and are also sometimes known as Pomato plants.

Care Instrictions

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

These Potatom plants have been bred specially to grow not only sweet cherry tomatoes but also potatoes making them perfect for when space is limited. In order to successfully grow both you will need to repot your plant into a much larger container or even in the ground and stake your plant to some good stiff canes as it grows.

Potatom plants love sunlight and will be happiest in a sunny spot or in the greenhouse until the threat of frosts have passed. Give them as much direct sunlight as possible, and in a sheltered spot and not exposed to cold winds. The ideal temperature is 15-20 degrees centigrade. If keeping your Potatom in a greenhouse, regularly tap the branch or flower trusses to stimulate pollination.

Water the plant every day if possible and remove side shoots from the tomato plant and potato shoots that pop up above the earth. If you have any liquid feed they will benefit from feeding once a week (Tomato feed is best but any plant feed will contain extra nutrients).

With the right care these plants will treat you with fruit through the summer and then a bumper crop of potatoes in the autumn. Tomatoes that are allowed to ripen on the plant to a bright red will have the best flavour but green tomatoes can be used in chutneys or placed on a windowsill to ripen.

At the end of the season when all tomatoes have been harvested, cut off the stem and leave the crop for a few weeks. The potatoes will ripen in the ground. You can dig them up after ten to fourteen days. You should be able to unearth 2 to 3 kg of potatoes! The potatoes are small to medium yellow potatoes, firm-boiling and taste delicious.

These are annual plants and will only last one season.
