Grafted Tomato Plants - F1 Crimson Collection

Grafting onto specific rootstocks of course creates bigger, better, more disease-resistant plants with increased yield. Consequently, we believe, the extra vigour which the plant obtains will provide even better protection to late Blight attack and the plants will grow away from any infection even more rapidly. Grafted Tomato Crimson Collection contains 6 Super Plugs (2 of each variety):

F1 Crimson Crush - has the best tolerance to late blight disease we have ever seen! Plants can still exhibit infection on up to 15-20% of the leaf surface, but that's when the resistance kicks in and previously healthy plants can normally grow away from the attack! For 2016 we are able, for the first time, following extensive trialing, Crimson Crush is available as grafted plants! As well as its ability to shrug off even the worst blight, Crimson Crush will provide great yields of exceptionally fine tasting, large, round tomatoes (each weighing up to 200g). Bred for outdoor growing, it's the tomato that everyone should be planting this year!

F1 Crimson Cherry - All the enviable blight resistance of Crimson Crush, in a very early cropping large cherry type! Crimson Cherry like Crimson Crush has the best tolerance to late blight disease we have ever seen! Plants can still exhibit infection on up to 15-20% of the leaf surface, but that's when the resistance kicks in and previously healthy plants can normally grow away from the attack! As well as its ability to shrug off even the worst blight, it will provide great yields of exceptionally fine tasting, large, cherry tomatoes. Bred for outdoor growing, it's the tomato that everyone should be planting this year!

Crimson Beefsteak - A superb beefsteak variety with good blight resistance. It's a vigorous grower and a reliable cropper!

Please note: There is a possibility that your plant will include a grafting clip, if it does, this is an integral part of the grafting process and that it should be left in place. As the plant grows it will naturally shrug off the clip.

(Cordon variety - one stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear, needs staking and tying in.) This is not just a blight resistant tomato it is a blight beating tomato. Never be disappointed with your tomato crop when blight strikes again.  Ideal for the home or the allotment.

Please note: With regards to the nature of the blight resistance, plants can still show infection (up to 15-20%) of leaves, stems etc. without effecting fruit quality or yield. The plants having the resistance to be able to grow away from the attack.

TOM EXPLAINS THE TECHNICAL STUFF YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW…
This variety is unique in that it has two resistance genes to Phytopthera infestans (Late Blight), giving it full resistance to all strains of blight currently found in the UK. So if blight spores come into contact wth the plant the infection will not spread throughout the plant.

It's been bred using natural methods and has been tested throughout the breeding process using Marker Assisted Selection (MAS).
