Tomato Grafted Plants -Shimmer

The Shimmer grafted tomato plant will produce bite-sized fruits packed with a deliciously sweet, fruity flavour. Unique in colour the ‘Shimmer’ has red, green, and gold stripes. Almond-shaped fruit, bigger than a cherry type but smaller than a Roma tomato, it has excellent resistance to late blight. Harvesting from July through to October, these little flavoursome fruits will make the perfect addition to your favourite summer recipes and add a splash of colour.

What’s so good about grafted veg plants? 

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.

Grow in the greenhouse or outdoors, little or no heating required. With excellent resistance to soil-borne pest and diseases - No more ring culture or grow bags you simply plant straight in the soil.

Caring for your Grafted Shimmer

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.

They require daily watering and feeding. The Shimmer is a cordon variety - one stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear needs staking and tying in and will require side shoots 'pinching out'.
