Tomatoes and Potatoes grafted into one plant....

.....so says The Territorial Seed Co. in Oregon. Not genetically engineered but grafted. Called "Ketchup n' Fries"

Red cherry tomatoes on top and white potatoes below. Also called a TomTato.

When the main stem of the potato is 6 to 8 inches tall cut it off making as deep of a V configured cut as possible. Take the top of a tomato plant the same approximate diameter and cut it so it fits into the V.
Coat this "graft with grafting wax and wrap it in masking tape.
Now you've got one.

This reminds me of an old Harley Davidson 250CC bike I had. It was made to ride in the woods or on the highway. Turned out it wasn't great for either. That's what this grafted plant brings to mind; can't dig potatoes until tomatoes are gone, and they are not gone until frost kills them.

I think that it is quite likely. Apparently tomatos and potatos are in the same family.

neither will be very prolific as a pant has a hard time putting into 2 storehouses at once...
oh, and some tomatoes are determinate... so they set all their tomatoes at the same time and are done...before frost! ( paste tomatoes for example, although they have developed a few indeterminate varieties)

Potatoes are a vegetable, tomatoes are a fruit-technically; but it's not that simple. Are tomatoes a fruit or vegetable?: Organic Gardening

I will stick to cutting the eyes off my Potato's in early spring and starting them in doors and buying my tomato plants or starting the seeds indoors. Likely they would be way to expensive regardless if they are grafted.
