New and exclusive - the first tomato that dries on the vine!
The 'sun-blushed' tomato plant, plants produce long trusses of bright red, semi-plum shaped fruit, probably the sweetest tomato you will ever grow. They're deliciously sweet picked fully ripe like a normal tomato, but fruit will start to 'dry' on the plant without splitting or dropping, this means they get even sweeter and have the texture of Italian antipasti tomatoes. Vine dried, wrinkled fruit can be stored in jars of olive oil for use throughout the year. 3 Super Plugs.Part of the Rob Smith Grafted Veg Range. Grafted Plants - 75% more fruit, great flavour PLUS more pest & disease resistant!
The Grafting Process - Grafted plants use rootstock which is more resistant towards soil-borne pests and diseases, thus giving naturally 'easy to care for' plants which need less pest control and are ideal to grow organically. We hand graft our entire grafted collection, the only machine that is used is a grading machine. This is to grade the plant size through photography to ensure the best match in a graft. It takes seven different skilled people to complete the grafting process for one plant, producing 180 plants every hour.
The top of a tasty fruiting plant variety and a super-strong rootstock are skillfully and meticulously removed by hand using a small blade to slice at an angle across each stem. They are then grafted together using a special clip which drops off naturally as the plant grows. Our vegetable plants allow you to 'pick and mix' whatever you want to grow! They're ideal if you don't have the time, space or confidence to start from seed.
