The TomTato from Thompson & Morgan combines a potato and tomato plant into one plant.

The specially grafted plant is “a horticultural breakthrough,” according to the company.

“The tomatoes are sugary yet tangy with a brix of 10.2, and below ground this plant produces delicious, versatile potatoes – ideal for boiling, mashing, roasting, baking or for making chips,” it says in a description on its YouTube video about the product.

Above the ground, up to 500 cherry tomatoes can be grown with the plant. In addition, white potatoes are grown underneath the plant.

“From one single plant you can now harvest tomatoes and potatoes,” says the company.
