Pomato Growing Primer
Most people don't realize that tomatoes and potatoes are closely related and the stem from a tomato can be grafted on to a potato root stalk and the plant will theoretically be able to produce both crops. NASA is currently looking at this technology to maximize production in a small space for future missions. However, it could also be great for those with balcony gardens or someone who's curious and wants a novelty plant or would like to have some basic knowledge grafting plants.
I will go through the grafting technique as well as growing of the plant and its nutritional requirements, as well as advice on selecting the best varieties for a successful Frankenplant.
Training & Qualifications
I have worked with Dr. Saeid Mobini from the Alberta Department of Agriculture who is one of the foremost experts on the crop. I was helping him develop a fertilizer blend specific for the crop and successfully grew a few plants on my own.
