Ketchup 'N' Fries

Every year there are a few plants that we're exceptionally excited about.  A few years ago we were thrilled to be able to grow grafted tomato and pepper plants for the first time- and we loved them! We're still growing a wide variety of grafted tomatoes this spring, and added into the mix is a funky new plant:  Ketchup 'n' Fries. Ketchup 'n' Fries is a cherry tomato grafted onto potato rootstock... so it will bear both tomatoes and potatoes.  Get it?  It's Ketchup 'n' Fries!  This is the first real push for this plant in the U.S., after it has found great interest and success in Europe as the 'TomTato'.  While it's not an entirely new concept (I've read about similar plants grown in the 1990's or so), it's definitely a fun one!  They'd be great in a garden bed or in a pot on your patio.  Tasty, unusual, and what a great conversation starter!

So who's up for some Ketchup 'n' Fries?!
