Be aware that the grafting together of the two plants can effect the taste of the fruit.

  Thanks for that, Beam.  You've encouraged him to meddle with things he doesn't understand, and tamper with the very forces of nature.  A collection of posts from mutant Pomatoes, next year, telling us about cut-price groceries, and traffic accidents in Wales, is just what we need.  :laugh:

The past couple of years have seen "spliced" tomato plants in the garden centres. They are supposed to grow faster and have better fruit. But at £3 a pop they can forget it!

A plant that produces both tomatoes and potatoes, called the TomTato, has been developed for the UK market.

Ipswich-based horticultural firm Thompson and Morgan said the hybrid plants were not genetically modified.

Similar plants have been created in the UK, but the firm said it was thought to be the first time they had been produced on a commercial scale.

A similar product, dubbed the "Potato Tom", was launched in garden centres in New Zealand this week.

After hybridising certain tomato varieties, several were found to produce spuds too... but they were poisonous.

Worst case scenario, you'd end up with a plant with poisonous potatoes AND poisonous tomatoes. That would be MY luck, anyway  :-\
