This grafted vegetable plant collection consists of 3 x 9cm well established plants, 1 each of the following varieties:
Tomato Supersweet F1 (Cherry) - An amazing crop of small red cherry tomatoes which have super sweet taste. This prolific fruiter was also in the top 3 of the 2007 Tastiest Tomato Competition.
Cucumber Baby Rocky F1 - A vigorous plant that produces baby cues up to 8 to 9cm (3-4in) in length with a delicious crisp taste. Matures early and produces plenty of fruits in both low and high temperatures. Ideal for snacks, salads, and lunch boxes.
Pepper Jericho (Sweet) - A big cropping sweet pepper with thick-walled fruits which are 15-18cm long. They ripen from green to red and are great fresh or for stuffing.
Grafted vegetable plants offer us gardeners’ plants which have greater vigour and much more resistance to soil borne pests and diseases, such as nematodes – particularly useful if you grow in the greenhouse border soil each year, where crop rotation is somewhat limited! The grafting process brings together the best attributes of two different plants – a species rootstock and a hybrid variety. The hybrid variety is grafted to the species rootstock to produce plants which are strong and vigorous, which in turn, produce more fruits and heavier yields. Although traditionally greenhouse grown, we have found, over the last few years, that plants, if placed in a warm and sunny position, will also crop well outside too – even more reason to grow them!
