Tomato 'Sweet Aperitif'

Solanum lycopersicum L.

 Customer Rating

Cordon

With its multi branching habit, this red skinned cherry tomato produces excellent yields of delicious, bite sized fruits. Each fruit weighs approximately 12g and when grown in the greenhouse over a long period, up to 500 thin-skinned, shiny red cherry fruits are produced per plant - that's about 6kg (13 lbs)! Tomato 'Sweet Aperitif' has a high sugar content and just the right amount of acidity which combine beautifully for a sweet, but refreshing flavour. This cordon variety can be grown in the greenhouse, or in a sheltered, sunny spot outdoors. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20").


Companion planting: Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basil, chives or mint to deter aphids and other pests.

Tomato 'Gigantomo'®

Solanum lycopersicum L.

After 20 years of breeding work, this colossal beefsteak tomato is the largest variety commercially available. Just one slice will fill a burger bun or sandwich, leaving plenty left over for the rest of the family! The enormous fruits of Tomato 'Gigantomo'® each weigh up to 1.3kg (3lbs) and measure 20cm (10") across. This amazing Tomato has all the disease resistance of modern cultivars, with a fleshy texture and wonderful flavour that harks back to heritage varieties.

Tomato 'Gigantomo'® is best grown in the greenhouse to provide adequate time for the giant fruits to ripen, but will also grow in a sheltered, sunny spot outdoors. Each cordon will produce up to 11 massive tomatoes. With fruits this big, these sturdy plants will certainly need staking. Height: 200cm (79in). Spread: 50cm (20").


Companion planting: Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basil, chives or mint to deter aphids and other pests.

TomTato® Improved (Ketchup 'n' Fries™, Ketchup and Chips)

Solanum lycopersicum, Solanum tuberosum

  • Harvest both tomatoes AND potatoes from this unique plant!
  • Incredible innovation in vegetable growing
  • All natural - no GM

Cordon.

Here's another major horticultural breakthrough from Thompson & Morgan! Specially hand-grafted plants producing potatoes AND tomatoes are now available to UK home gardeners for the first time. Above the ground harvest harvest over 500 cherry tomatoes with a Brix level of 10.2 - that's sweeter than supermarket tomatoes. Fruits also have just the right level of acidity that only the tastiest tomatoes have.

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL... Below the ground harvest heavy yields of up to 2kg of delicious white potatoes which are incredibly versatile. You can boil them, mash them, roast them or make chips. That's right! From one plant you can harvest tomatoes AND potatoes. This concept has been worked on for over 15 years, but this is the first time that plants have been successfully produced commercially. Tomatoes are members of the potato family and are therefore naturally compatible with potatoes. Each TomTato® plant is specially grafted by hand to create this unique double cropping feature. There's no genetic modification - it's an all-natural, and safe process.


TomTato® Improved

We've reworked this exclusive grafting concept for the 2016 season for even better results in your garden. Following feedback from our customers we've retained the heavy cropping, super sweet tomato variety, promising you more than 500 cherry tomatoes per plant, but we now graft it to a different potato to bring you 50% more fresh, tasty spuds at the end of the season. Once the tomatoes have finished cropping, cut the plant at ground level and harvest up to 3kg of potatoes two weeks later. Our TomTato® performs perfectly in the ground but can be grown in a large 40 litre pot making it ideal for small gardens, patios and balconies too - grow potatoes and tomatoes where you've never grown them before!


Plants come with growing and aftercare instructions. (Not that you'll really need them - these plants are so easy to grow!) Grow them indoors or outdoors, in a patio pot, on your allotment or on the vegetable patch.

TomTato® makes the perfect growing partner for our new Egg & Chips™ plant. Why not try them together for three easy crops from two large pots?

Tomato 'Mountain Magic'

Solanum lycopersicum L.

For blight-free tomato growing this season look no further than Mountain Magic F1. This top-performing cordon-trained variety is ideal for sunny veg patches and borders, as well as grow bags and patio containers. Combining the rich flavour of heritage varieties with modern F1 hybrid disease resistance, this tasty tom has everything going for it!


Mountain Magic F1 is truly all-purpose - eat it from the vine, slice for salads and sandwiches, or use as a cooker or sauce base.


Not only does it have good resistance to early blight, it carries the late blight-busting Ph-2 and Ph-3 genes, giving it full protection against all current British strains including Pink6 and Blue13, the most virulent to hit UK crops. It also has in built genetic resistance to both verticillium and fusarium wilt and cracking.


To top it off you will be hard pushed to find better flavour from such a disease resistant variety. Mountain Magic F1 takes on a high sugar level from its grape tomato parentage. The smooth, uniform, evenly-coloured fruits, each weighing around 56g, have consistently been rated high in flavour compared to heritage varieties such as Brandywine. Height: 130cm (52"). Spread: 120cm (47")

Solanum lycopersicum L.

  • F1 tomatoes with unusual fruity flavours!
  • Three different colours
  • Three distinct flavours

Three different coloured F1 tomatoes offering you three very different flavours! A fun collection of novelty tomato plants, all easy to grow and productive whether you raise them outdoors or under glass.

Mandarin F1 has a rather different flavour; less sweet, but tangy and with a glorious aroma.
Melon F1 is eye-catching with pink-red skin, and has a gentle flavour akin to watermelon!
For the very best flavour from each of your distinctive varieties, plant them in a full sun position. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20"). More info

Vegetable Grafted Collection

Revolutionise the way you grow your summer crops with Thompson & Morgan Grafted Vegetables.

This all-natural process of joining a fruiting variety to a more vigorous rootstock has brought massive benefits to commercial crop production. Now you can bring the goodness of grafted vegetables to your own pots or plots.

Some vegetable varieties produce fantastic fruit but are weak growers, others are vigorous growers with poor fruits. We've selected rootstocks from vigorous performers and matched them with the best fruiting varieties to bring you the best possible results from a single plant. Spend a little extra on our grafted plants and reap the rewards right through the season.

  • Why grow grafted plants?
  • Massive increase in yields - up to 75%
  • Longer cropping season - plants fruit earlier in spring and crop later into autumn
  • Hardier to outdoor conditions - grow traditional greenhouse crops outside
  • Better tolerance to soil pests and diseases - no need for growbags - plant straight in the ground

    This collection comprises of
  • Cucumber 'Mini Stars' - A miniature cucumber with maximum vigour.
  • Pepper 'Orias' - This jumbo chilli pepper produces medium strength fleshy chillies, each up to 18cm (7") long.
  • Tomato 'Solena Red'- A sweet cherry variety with extra vigour, producing long trusses of fruits so sweet it garners the nick name 'Nectar Cherry'.
  • Tomato 'Sportivo' - a new variety bursting with flavour for a wide range of culinary uses.
